Fedor Emelianenko vs. Jeff Monson gets a trailer

With less than a month remaining before heavyweight great Fedor Emelianenko steps back into the cage in hopes of snapping a three-fight skid, M-1 Global has released a trailer for his upcoming match-up with former UFC title-contender Jeff Monson and, in a shocking development, Emelianenko appears to be slightly popular in Russia where he not only hails from but where the November 20 event will be held.

Emelianenko’s career could very well be on the line when he faces Monson in Moscow after essentially remaining undefeated for more than thirty fights before falling in a trio of bouts under the Strikeforce banner with all of the losses involving some form of stoppage. The 31-4 PRIDE icon holds past wins over the likes of Andrei Arlovski, Tim Sylvia, Mirko Filipovic, and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, but is 35 and an undersized heavyweight indicating his days in MMA appear to be numbered.

Monson also boasts an impressive record (42-12) including twenty-six wins via submission and victories over Kazuyuki Fujita, Travis Fulton, Ricco Rodriguez, Roy Nelson, and Sergei Kharitonov.
