Frankly this announcement is a bit of a letdown but not a surprise. Bellator has confirmed that Fedor Emelianenko will face #2 ranked (Bellator) heavyweight Tim Johnson on October 23 in Moscow.

It’s not exactly Drago vs Rocky.

Johnson is 3-1 in his last four fights but is coming off a decision loss to Valentin Moldavsky in his last fight. Fedor hasn’t fought since a knockout of Rampage Jackson at Bellator 237 in December 2019.

The fight is the main event of Bellator 269 and is set for three rounds.
