Jeff Monson Says November 12th Bout with Fedor Emelianenko “Confirmed”

By FCF Staff

Fedor Emelianenko’s next bout will take place November 12th in Russia versus well traveled veteran and decorated grappler Jeff Monson, according to a post on the latter’s official Twitter account. Monson’s ‘tweet’, which said a bout with Fedor was “confirmed”, included no information regarding the city and venue

M-1 Global has not yet confirmed any opponent for Emelianenko, however, officials with the promotion have reported that the former Pride champ would fight before 2011 is up. Attempts to reach M-1 Global were not immediately returned.

The 40 year-old Monson also posted that there will be a press conference “on 16th in Russia”.

Monson (42-12) is coming off a unanimous decision loss to undefeated heavyweight Daniel Cormier in June, after the BJJ black belt won 8 straight fights.

Emelianenko (31-4) has lost three straight bouts to Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Silva and most recently Dan Henderson, after going undefeated for ten years.
