    According to Bellator boss Scott Coker, the promotion is planning one final fight for Fedor Emelianenko and they are currently targeting a summer date in Moscow.

    “I think that we’re planning something really, you know, large-scale event in Russia for him as his farewell, sending off as far as having this illustrious career being the greatest heavyweight of all time,” Coker told MMAJunkie.

    ”We’re going to have one more. It’s going to be massive. It’ll probably be next summer. It’ll be in Moscow. (Fedor Emelianenko) wants to fight in Russia for us, his last fight, so we’re going to do it there, and we have some great plans. Again, this is going to be a massive send-off. This is not going to just be a normal fight, and we’re going to do – it’s going to be something really special, and we’re already starting to plan it right now.”

    Scott Coker declined to reveal any potential opponents but did he seem to rule out the contest being a shot at Bellator’s heavyweight title.

    Cool. Should try to get Mark Coleman's daughters as ring girls.

    Then again, either way it goes, it ain't going past the first. So, they won't have much to do.

    This is my fantasy fight but it would make no sense in Russia. I think Barnett or Werdum II make the most sense. I woukd hate it if it was Anderson Silva.

    My vote still goes for Barnett as the final fight. Another UFC HW Champ, Fight was suppose to happen under Affliction, Barnett looked good in his Last MMA fight vs AA, Looked good in his BKC fight AND is under Bellator contract.

    Its him, Kongo or Fortune if they stay within the roster (without having a LHW come up). Of the three only Barnett will draw fans.

    I just hope Fedor wins and hoes out on top. It'd be cool if it was vs a top guy or Brock.

    Fedor vs Sergei would be super weird but appropriate.

    This would have been the best time ever for Fedor vs Kimbo.

    RIP KIMBO

    Fabricio Werdum
    Josh Barnett
    Cheick Kongo
    Junior Dos Santos
    Sergei Kharitonov
    Ryan Bader (if he loses to Moldavsky)

    All good retirement fights for Fedor.
