Bellator NYC: Fedor Emelianenko Discusses Future Following KO Loss
By FCF Staff
Although Fedor Emelianenko’s return to the U.S. ended in violent fashion, last night at Bellator NYC, the 40 year-old legend plans to keep fighting.
Emelianenko took on Matt Mitrione in the co-main event, and after both men went down at the same time, the latter proceeded to finish “The Last Emperor” with punches from above.
At the post-fight presser, Emelianenko was asked if he plans to keep fighting, and the Russian star said “yes, because I am a fighter.” Emelianenko was also asked if he’d be interested in rematching Mitrione, and the former PRIDE champ said he is.
Last night’s defeat ended Emelianenko’s five fight winning streak, which included a controversial, decision win over Fabio Maldonado.
