Where To Watch: Bellator 269: Fedor Emelianenko Vs. Tim Johnson Tonight
Fedor Emelianenko is returning for what could be his second-to-last fight.
Emelianenko (39-6, 1 NC) meets Tim Johnson (15-7) in a heavyweight matchup on Saturday, October 23 at Bellator 269 at the VTB Arena in Moscow, Russia, Emelianenko’s home country.
Emelianenko, 45, revealed, depending on how he feels after the fight, he could retire again. But he said he still has one fight left on his Bellator contract.
Nonetheless, Emelianenko is considered by many one of MMA’s greatest fighters to ever compete. He handpicked Johnson because he seemed like a good opponent, he said. Johnson is coming off a unanimous decision win over Valentin Moldavsky in a Bellator interim heavyweight title fight in June.
