    Well, let's hope he means it when he says he'll try to do something ambitious this time.

    I can't wait for Fedor vs Luis Cortez. According to FightMatrix he's ranked one spot above Singh, so that would make sense. Just slowly climbing up the HW ladder again. It'll only take another 206 fights after that.

    December is a looong time
    I don't think he will be fighting in April's card, maybe if they make another show in August/October

    Interesting that the Russian translation starts off with "Over the course of 2 days" and ends with "Good luck to us".

    The translation is hard to comprehend but it seems likely that "new and ambitious" means something retarded. There isn't anything "ambitious" you could add to MMA that ISN'T retarded. Tag team match? HW vs. FW matchups?

    Maybe they're just referring to holding an event in Russia. Would be new and ambitious for Sakakibara, and Fedor said in an interview that he thinks it's a good idea.

    It could be that. But I think it's something else. Because he didn't give up any details. And regarding the Rizin event in Russia - He talked about it several times now. so why the secrecy all of a sudden?
    He going to fight before December. According to both Millen and Sakikabara Fedor will probably be on the July card and NYE also.

    Because he did the same thing with the Jaideep rumors. First he turned them down while trying to keep the entire thing a secret that had already been leaked and then he just confirmed the secret.

    Yeah but with the Russian event thing he said that it's very possible this year. And Fedor said the same thing.

    Awesome, we can now watch maybe the greatest MMA fighter of all time fight the billy bobs of the world half way around the world at 2AM.

    We should all be super excited.

    Hard to get excited for this. I love Fedor but who could possibly defeat him there?

    Fedor will take a page out of Roy Jones Jr playbook, Roy is boxing a fan on a PPV. Fedor will do the same.

    Maybe do a reality show built around finding the right fan to fight Fedor.

    I don't care to see him fight King Mo, or Tito or anyone else that's not a legit HW.

    He needs to fight more often. It's not like he took any damage in the Singh fight.
