Obviously this could be/probably is complete BS and no one else is reporting it so I'm very doubtful- if this was a DREAM card on New Year's Eve I might believe it more. But it's out there.

Wow, I dont even know what to say to this, I mean the Lindland fight could at least be justified by the fact that Lindland bulked up and Fedor could most likely make LHW but this is F***ing ridiculous.

This can't be real.

I won't believe it, even if the event goes live.

Holy crap it looks like this is true- but it's an exhibition and will have modified rules:

Fedor Emelianenko vs. Shinya Aoki at DEEP/M-1 Challenge by Chris Nelson on Apr 23, 2009 8:44 AM EDT in News 16 comments


The rumors are true: MMA's undisputed #1 heavyweight and Japan's top lightweight will square off in a special exhibition match at next Wednesday's DEEP/M-1 Challenge event. DEEP President Shigeru Saeki and Shinya Aoki announced the fight today at a press conference in Tokyo; Fedor was not present, though his manager Vadim Finkelstein and Affliction VP Tom Atencio are said to be in Japan at the moment. The specifications and rules for the bout have not been finalized, but Saeki likened it to this week's K-1 MAX exhibition between Masato and 17-year-old kickboxing phenom HIROYA. (For what it's worth, HIROYA wore headgear and both parties wore shinguards.) Due to the weight difference between the two, this will presumably be a pure grappling or Sambo match. Aoki says he's pleased to be able to set foot in the ring with "the symbol of MMA."


Also announced for next Wednesday: Abe Ani Combat Club's Yusuke Masuda (2-5-2) will take Riki Fukuda's spot at 84kg on Team Japan, squaring off against England's Matt "12 Gauge" Thorpe (10-7). Fukuda pulled out of the event in favor of facing Murilo "Ninja" Rua on 48 hours notice at DREAM.8, where he won by unanimous decision.


Don't forget, the entire DEEP/M-1 Challenge show will be streaming over at Japan-MMA. The BE Night Crew will undoubtedly be up in full force for this one.
