Some familiar names are rumored to be on the short list for Fedor’s return to MMA. Big names that will undoubtedly be booked to bring in the casual viewer for “The Last Emperor’s” return on October 23.
Scott Coker dropped a few names in an interview with MMA Junkie:
“Believe me, there’s no shortage of opponents (for) Russia right now. Listen, the managers of all free agents are calling. Josh Barnett was texting me today. I talked to (Junior Dos Santos’) manager a couple of days ago. Alistair Overeem. The list just goes on and on.”Scott Coker on Fedor’s Opponent via MMA Junkie
The list isn’t all that surprising. It makes sense for Bellator to find a big name free agent to face Fedor.
