Fedor Emelianenko returns to fighting on June 21 in Russia, where he will face former UFC heavyweight contender Pedro “The Rock” Rizzo.
The former No. 1 heavyweight is on a two-fight streak since leaving Strikeforce. Rizzo, however, has been out of action for a while, having difficulty lining up a fight.
Fedor spoke with GroundandPoundTV recently in Germany, breaking down the fight with Rizzo, and discussing the differences between his promotion, M-1 Global, and other promotions such as the UFC, whom his management has been unable to come to terms with in the past.
