Emelianenko was in the midst of his farewell tour under the Bellator banner before the COVID-19 pandemic made its presence felt. “The Last Emperor” last competed back in December 2019. Emelianenko stopped Quinton “Rampage” Jackson via first-round TKO.
Bellator president Scott Coker had plans of having the farewell tour end in Russia. Emelianenko hasn’t committed to retirement once the tour concludes. The former PRIDE FC Heavyweight Champion said his decision will ultimately boil down to how he’s feeling once the tour wraps up.
