Fedor knows name of NYE opponent, announcement to be made 'next week'

Post by Kingfedor on Sun Dec 06, 2015 1:48 pm

Fedor Emelianenko revealed that he is already training for a specific opponent for his New Year’s Eve return at Rizin FF.

It seems that MMA fans are the only people unaware of Fedor Emelianenko's next opponent.
The Russian heavyweight legend was a guest commentator at the recent Super MMA Cup of Russia event, where he revealed that he is already in the final portion of his training camp and is preparing for a very specific opponent.

However, while the former Pride Heavyweight champ has been informed of his upcoming opponent on New Year's Eve, the official announcement will not be made for another week.

Fedor was in Amsterdam for a portion of his training camp and recently returned to Moscow for the final few weeks leading up to his first fight in four years. His sparring partners consisted of fellow Russians like Kirill Sidelnikov, Anatoly Tokov, Vadim German, Victor German and Alexander Kosarev.

What a fucking joke.

3 weeks out and no announcement of an opponent.

Maybe they are going to pick some bum off the street.

I was going to attend the card, but am not feeling it.

The announced fights are weak sauce.

I'm sure there are many unnanounced.

12/29 has some decent fights, but the two-day tickets are sold out. I was going to get one for me, and one for my friend, but I procrastinated, due to the scanty details, and the credit card debt.

I'm not even interested in attending this card anymore.

I can't stand them taking so long to put a card together.

It is a shame in combat sports to do that.

Fighters need time to prepare.

Fans need time to become enthusiastic.

Fuck it.

I'll watch on TV I think.

I have a good TV in a commons area I can presumably watch on.

^This is common in JMMA.  He still may have a good opponent.  The GP looks real good with champs and top contenders from orgs all over the world.  This is the return of JMMA so I'm looking forward to it.

The real question is does fedor's opponent know what i mean is that it won't look good for jmma if fedor knew who his opponent was all along and they just find out next week .

I wonder if Ivanov is a possibility? He last fought for WSOF which could be why this is taking forever

I know it is common. And it is just as much bullshit.

Feels like I'm watching a Deontay Wilder fight at this point.

 I don't mind the wait if the opponent is solid. Just really hoping it's worth the wait.

It's not the wait alone. It also affects the integrity of the contest when opponents are brought in late for big fights.

The thing is though all indications are that the bout has been set for over a month.....fedor has an opponent they both know they are fighting.....for whatever reason Rizin is keeping it hush hush lol.

I second cd if its a good opponent i don't care if it isn't revealed until he makes his way to the ring haha.

I'm starting to side with Nodo

A month ahead is still too last minute for an organization that wants to be seen as cream of the crop. This last minute announcement crap needs to be a relic of the past when injuries aren't involved.

Another thing I'm starting to see from his side is that his opponent is most likely Baruto. There's been absolutely no word on his opponent this far and it would be a very JMMA thing to do. I was hoping that feeding these debutantes to the wolves would also be a thing of the past but I think the fight itself will certainly drum up interest.

I doubt he is fighting Baruto.

But if he did, I would have absolutely no problems, and would eat my words.

Why? Baruto has been booked for the card, has been training for the card for many months, and if it was a deal they were both aware of, no huge worries (not great for fans though).

Even though Baruto is making his debut, that could be an interesting fight.

Like I've said, Baruto would be one of the best sumo wrestlers in history to try his hand at MMA, is relativeley young, and is a giant. He also has a judo background.

One aspect of late announcements has to do with fighters being unprepared.

Another has to do with fans not being able to get excited enough.

The 12/31 card looks thin.

I'm probably not attending this event.

As a fan, I expect them to solidify the fights before now.

I'll still watch on TV though.

I have a Russian friend, I attended one NYE card with.

We talked about attending this card.

I could call him up, and say, "Hey, I'm buying the tickets." And he'd say, "Okay, sounds good, I'll see you there."

I have a hard time with this situation.

I want to know who the fuck he is fighting. I want to know what I am paying for.

The 12/31 card is thin.

I'm unmotivated and depressed of late.

I was expecting an epic card.

If that isn't what is happening, I don't see the point of it.

I would rather keep my money in my pocket.

If they wanted my mind changed, they could put together a really decent card, release the info, and release who Fedor is fighting.

Not doing so, makes me less motivated to attend.

The opponent may have known about the fight as long as Fedor did.  They may just be holding out to December to inform the fans which is typical with JMMA. PRIDE and DREAM both did this often.

If I was in Japan I would buy these tickets in a heart beat for the return of both Fedor and JMMA (and the GP all under PRIDE rules).

The tickets cost money and again I want to know what I'm paying for. I don't like to pay for hype alone.

Apparently it's a rematch, so I'm hoping for Arona and probably getting Cro Cop.
