In recent days there have been conflicting reports surrounding the scheduling of WAMMA heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko’s next fight.

Speculation began to run rampant that Fedor will be competing in Japan for DREAM on New Year’s Eve following comments made during an in-ring interview at DREAM.6 this past Tuesday. Affliction Vice President Tom Atencio issued a response to the reports by saying that Fedor’s services had been secured for their planned January event.

The conflicting information has left a lot of fight fans confused as to when and where they’ll be able to see Fedor fight again. In an attempt to gain some clarity on the subject, FiveOuncesOfPain.com contacted M-1 officials for an official statement.

“As of right now, Fedor is not scheduled to fight on New Year’s Eve in Japan,” pronounced M-1 Vice President Jerry Millen, speaking on behalf of Fedor’s management team. “He is contracted to M-1 and Affliction and he’s scheduled to fight in America for them in mid-January.”
