New Reality Series: "fighting Fedor"

Could this be true???? forgive me if its a load of B.S.

Thursday, April 24, 2008 - by


Though the details are somewhat sporadic, Mix-Fight M-1 on Thursday announced a new reality show centered around the opportunity to face Fedor Emelianenko.

The show, titled “Fighting Fedor,” will reportedly bring 16 heavyweight fighters from around the world to Saint Petersburg, Russia. According the M-1, “During the show, they’ll live and train in (the Red Devil sports club).”

Not coincidentally, the owners of M-1 also guide Emelianenko’s career and operate the Red Devil sports club and fight team, of which Emelianenko is a part of.

The fighters will “once in a while … be joined by well-known fighters to hold master-classes and training,” according to the report on the Mix-Fight M-1 website.

The fighters will compete against one another until only one remains. That fighter will then get an opportunity to face Emelianenko, currently ranked as the No. 1 heavyweight fighter in the world.

No details as to the time frame of the show, its casting, where it will be available for viewing, or when or where the bout with Emelianenko will take place was forthcoming in the announcement.

Emelianenko is currently scheduled to fight former Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight titleholder Tim Sylvia under the banner of the new Affliction promotion on July 19 in Dallas, Texas.

Its been discussed a while ago, maybe like 2 months ago, is this still happening? I think its a stupid concept, only to hype Fedor to the north American fanbase I think. What if he looses?

Right kick, Hospital.
Left kick, Cemetery.

I'm confused. This is old news and I thought M-1 was no more? I hope they scrap this project.

I saw this posted last night at recently as well... What gives?
