Fedor Emelianenko announced on Friday via his personal website that he has officially signed to fight Tim Sylvia on July 19 in the United States. MMAWeekly.com has since confirmed the fight with independent sources close to the fight.

The announcement did not mention a specific show, but previous sources have indicated that it will be a promotion headed by clothing giant, Affliction.

The news on his website also stated that Fedor has signed on for two more fights to take place later this year in October and December, although no particular opponent or organization was named for either fight.

The fight in December is set to take place in Japan on one of the New Yearís Eve shows as Fedor plans on celebrating his sixth year in a row overseas.

This will be Fedorís first fight since submitting Hong Man Choi at the Yarennoka event in Japan on New Yearís Even 2007, while Sylvia will face his first challenge since exiting the Ultimate Fighting Championship after being their champion on two separate occasions.

Tim Sylvia won't be effective against Fedor.

I see Silvia giving him a fight even with the fact that his latest fights weren't great wins but I'm still gonna go with a submission by Fedor

Nevermind, I misread the article. It says he's signed for 2 fights after the Sylvia fight, including one on New Years Eve. Thats a relief.

Yeah, it seemed strange. The wording of the article threw me off though.
