With all the hype and madness tied to UFC 229, the fact that Fedor Emelianenko is going to return to the cage in just five days, has gotten lost in the mix.
The legendary fighter and former PRIDE champ is going to face Chael Sonnen at Bellator 208, in what is a semi-final bout for the promotion’s heavyweight grand-prix. Emelianenko advanced to the semis by taking out former UFC champ Frank Mir this past April.
Well, recently Bellator posted the first two, Countdown episodes for Fedor – Sonnen, which will go down in Uniondale, New York.
The night before, at Bellator 207, Ryan Bader will battle Matt Mitrione in the other semifinal.
