Fedor Emelianenko will make the walk to the cage for the final time this weekend as he looks to avenge a loss to Bellator heavyweight champion Ryan Bader.
The two met back in January 2019 and Bader walked away victorious with a first-round TKO.
Emelianenko is regarded as one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and predominantly made a name for himself in Pride between 2002 and 2006 defeating the likes of Mark Coleman, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mark Hunt, and Mirko ‘Crocop’, among others.
Bader comes into the fight with back-to-back wins against Valentin Moldavsky and Cheick Kongo.
