RUMOR: Fedor's opponent is Jaideep Singh? (and Aoki vs. Sakuraba)

Post by Rizin=PRIDEFC on Tue Oct 06, 2015 11:16 am

Fedor Emelianenko's opponent for his Dec. 31 return fight is expected to be announced at a press conference in Japan on Thursday, however, sources with knowledge of the fight say the new Japanese promotion is targeting Indian-Japanese heavyweight kickboxer Jaideep Singh as his foe.

The 28-year-old Singh is 40-10 (1 NC) in kickboxing but just 1-0 in MMA. His lone MMA fight was in June 2013 when he defeated Alireza Tavak at Super Fight League 19. The 2009 K-1 World Grand Prix in Seoul champion hasn't won a kickboxing match since 2011.

The 39-year-old Emelianenko (34-14, 1 NC) recently ended his retirement to sign with former Pride boss Nobuyuki Sakakibara's new promotion, whose name has yet to be announced. One name that has been discussed is Samurai FC, but that has yet to be finalized. That announcement is also expected to come Thursday, along with several more details about the organization.

The promotion will hold three events in three days at the end of the year on Dec. 29, 30 and 31. The main event of the show on Dec. 29 is currently slated to be Shinya Aoki vs. Kazushi Sakuraba in a catchweight bout. All three events are expected to be held at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, with the hope that the Dec. 29 and 31 events will be televised locally on Fuji TV in Japan. The Emelianenko-Singh card will air via tape delay in the United States on Spike TV. The promotion is currently planning on only holding two-to-three mega events a year, and they could also feature kickboxing and grappling matches as well.

It's the first fight back for Fedor. I'm expecting it to be a favorable matchup.

It would be great to see Fedor destroy Kimbo.

I wanted this to be Pride 2.0 but what just got announced is utter shit sorry... Just another Inoki Bo Ya minus the pro wrestling. I'll hold my breath for the undercard hoping scott coker and sakibara get some big names on this

For a first fight back, I think it's not a deal breaker if Fedor doesn't fight a top 10, I will be mad though if we don't get someone worthy for the second fight.

This guy isn't that bad of a hw to be honest. He moves like werdum kinda minus the Bjj. Much better than some UFC hws like sean Jordan and Roy Nelson.

Anyone throwing shade at Fedor right now is nothing but no good Zooffa Zombie too me.

The world is a beautiful place when Fedor can return and face a taller & younger man with vicious enough striking to kill Sergei Kharitonov.

The world is a beautiful place when Fedor will be competing in Japan rather than on some Fite Pass show in Oklahoma.

The world is a beautiful place when Fedor does not have to wear Reeb0k.

man i hope it was at least sergei or at least ishii then  again the article did say they are "targeting" so  it is not exactly set in stone .
I looked him up he is good kick boxer even won a k1 championship KO sergei . Could be worse they could of signed a wwe wrestler who's only has done pro wrestling [no kickboxing boxing amatuer real wrestling jiu itsu]
oh wait ufc done that . they also have signed  a boxer and another pro wrestler who himself had only one fight prior but you know with those zombie some how that's different .

Though i'm interested in seeing the saku aoki fight .

yes i agree he legacy is already done if he wants to take it easy then thats his choice man the zombies have been going ape shit like i said in another post wouldn't make a difference who he was fighting they were going to talk shit whats the bet that if fedor signed with the UFC and this guy was his first opponent they would be singing a different tune .
The real truth is that they hate the fact that some fighters like him don;t bend over backwards and take up the arse by dana white and crew like they expect every fighter to do .

Ive been thinking and this is my outcome....

Fedor told us what hes doing but no one listens.....he said he wanted to fight in japan and Russia.

I bet his second fight is sakakibara doing event in russia or him fighting for m1.

Then he said he wanted to fight stateside so i think he will sign with bellator or ufc.


Thats my gut feeing.

Absolutely. Then again, they were cool with 1-0 Brock Lesnar in the UFC despite beating a can. They were fine with the UFC signing James Toney to $500,000 to face their most decorated fighter despite the fact he had no MMA experience before or since. They are perfectly cool with signing a pro wrestler like CM Punk despite the fact he has no combat sports experience, never competed in MMA, and never competed in any major competition like grappling or striking tournaments.

Keep in mind, they're Zuffa Zombies for a reason. They shit on every other MMA promotion no matter what, they don't want the UFC to have any competition, they don't want a fighters union or MMA Ali Act, and they want every good fighter in the UFC. To them, anything the UFC wants, they should get. They don't want competition, or a union, or anything that benefits anyone but them, then we should just shut up and give it to them.

Wait for the official news. Fight rumors are common and commonly wrong.

That's true. Remember when the media said Rampage would face Roy Jones in Bellator two years ago? He even said don't believe everything you hear or read.

If it's not those, they say that he only beat Nogueira and Cro Cop even though he also beat Babalu, Arona, Schilt, Herring, Coleman twice, Randleman, Kohsaka, Hunt, Sylvia, Arlovski, Rogers, and Monson. Hell, even gatekeepers like Fujita and Goodridge have something to offer.

What's even laughable is that they say he has to be in the UFC to prove himself. Their idea of Fedor proving himself is against Brock Lesnar who didn't even have 10 fights, Shane Carwin who mostly beat cans & got two good wins before he flamed out, and two current stars who can't stay healthy in Velasquez and Dos Santos. Guy already beat four former UFC Champions but beating the flavors of the month will establish him.

Not directly related but.... Fujita is very underrated as fighter in MMA community. Fujita had very close fight with Crocop(2nd), he beat (prime)Bob Sapp and almost KOd Fedor. I think people would look different at him if he won 2000 GP but that thing with knee happened and on on the saddest rematch with Coleman never happened.

They haven't announced who Fedor's opponent is. You can't go off of internet rumors. If you do that than the organization is called Samurai. For all anyone knows, this indian kickboxer is just someone they are trying to get for the HW tournament. Even if Fedor does fight him, it doesn't bother me. The guy has good stand up and destroyed Kharitonov on the feet in under 3 minutes.

It's Fedor's first fight back in 3.5 years and he just turned 39 years old. I don't expect him to be fighting Werdum and fedor said he wanted a warm up fight first to test himself out and see how he feels.
