Throughout a legendary career that has spanned 21 years and 46 pro fights, Fedor Emelianenko can proudly say he’s still doing what he loves.
The Russian slugger, widely considered the greatest heavyweight in MMA history, will make his penultimate walk to the cage on Saturday in front of his adoring countrymen when Emelianenko (39-6, 1 NC) headlines Bellator 269 inside VTB Arena in Moscow (Showtime, 3 p.m. ET).
The heavyweight tilt against bruising American Timothy Johnson (15-7) represents the final time Emelianenko will fight on Russian soil and the first since his disputed 2016 win over Fabio Maldonado.
