Long Overdue. For your contribution to NSB. - 1hourRun I concur - jazluvr 
Default Fedor Emelianenko vs. Rampage Jackson on December 29

LOS ANGELES – For the first time in the organization’s history, Bellator travels to Japan and the iconic Saitama Super Arena for an historic event, as Fedor Emelianenko (38-6, 1 NC) and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (38-13) square off in a long-awaited heavyweight showdown. Bellator Japan: Fedor vs. Rampage, powered by RIZIN, takes place Sunday, December 29 and will air LIVE on Paramount Network.

Tickets for Bellator Japan: Fedor vs. Rampage go on sale November 3. Additional bouts are expected to be announced in the coming days.

“For Bellator’s debut in Japan, we wanted to bring a massive event and fighters that the Japanese fans really connect with,” said Bellator President Scott Coker. “Given the vast history of martial arts and MMA in Japan, and especially at Saitama Super Arena, this will be a very special show that no one will want to miss. This will, unquestionably, be a monumental event for Bellator and I am looking forward to the moment that Fedor and ‘Rampage’ walk out to a crowd that has known them since their careers began. I would also like to thank RIZIN for their help in making this event a possibility and we look forward to working together in the near future to showcase the best talent each organization has to offer.”

Fighting out of Stary Oskol, Belgorod Oblast, Russia, Fedor Emelianenko returns to Japan following a successful run in the Bellator Heavyweight World Grand Prix earlier this year, where he earned consecutive first-round knockouts over Chael Sonnen and Frank Mir. A former PRIDE FC Heavyweight Champion and PRIDE 2004 Heavyweight World Grand Prix Champion, “The Last Emperor” returns to where his career started.
Often referred to as “The GOAT” by fans around the world, his career resume stands as one of the most impressive in the history of the sport with victories over Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mirko Cro Cop, Mark Hunt, Mark Coleman and Andrei Arlovski, to name a few. With 29 career victories ending via finish, the punching power and world-class Sambo of the stoic Russian could result in yet another defining moment in his illustrious career.

An eight-fight veteran of Bellator, “Rampage” Jackson’s legendary career has seen him compete against some of the top names in the sport, generating a loyal army of fans along the way. The former PRIDE and UFC champion is the proud owner of many epic highlight reel slams and knockouts that he has racked up throughout his epic battles with the likes of Chuck Liddell, Dan Henderson, “King Mo” Lawal, Kevin Randleman and, perhaps most-notably, his four-fight series with Wanderlei Silva.

The Memphis, Tennessee-native has long been seen as an icon to MMA fans around the globe and has openly voiced a desire to face Fedor in front of a Japanese crowd before his career comes to an end. Now, the two legends will finally meet inside the Bellator cage on December 29 at the famed Saitama Super Arena.

Makes me sad. Two of my top 5 all-time favorites. This would have been amazing 10 years ago.
Now, one has no stamina, the other is chinny. Just terrible to see men fighting when they are no longer fit to fight.

It's gonna be fun. Jackson has just declined slightly less than the others. I still don't think any version of Jackson beats prime Wanderlei.

Rampage can barely walk unless Fedor does something stupid like stand infront of him by accident he will win and it wont be pretty because Rampage has quite the chin.

Fedor's got an ego, he will take the fight straight to Jackson just like he tried against Henderson and just like that one, he will get KO'd again. It's sad to see him becoming a sloppy brawler with no chin now.

Henderson could still move quick on his feat and has fast hands rampage is more of a plodder, Rampage is being set up by the match makers, Fedor is being gifted a fixed match

I would be shocked if this does not end up with Fedor charging straight at Rampage and getting clipped and ko'd quickly. Yes, Jackson can't move anymore which is exactly why Fedor should not fight him the way he always does.

Prime for prime Fedor smokes him.

Now I fear for him... Rampage still has a nasty left hook and Fedor is much, much slower now.

Fedor got KOed in his last fight by the first punch landed, and it was a jab. Fedor is ruining his legacy.
