Typically Japanese MMA waits until the last minute to start truly promoting fights but in the case of Fedor Emelianenko’s return to the Far East for a New Year’s Eve offering it appears DREAM is wasting no time, as the organization has already released a preview for the Russian’s recently announced match-up against Japanese Olympian Satoshi Ishii.
While the actual video is voiced in Japanese the images and video cross all language barriers as Ishii and Emelianenko are seen in some of their past performances.
Considered by most to be the greatest heavyweight in MMA history, Emelianenko will be looking for his second straight win after dropping a trio of bouts under the Strikeforce banner. Comparably, Ishii fell in his debut but has gone 4-0-1 since.
