Fedor Emelianenko in to fight St. Petersburg on June 21.

Russian mixed martial arts legend Fedor Emelianenko is going to make his second appearance in front of the home fans in the space of just one year.

The Last Emperor, who made his name fighting in the US and Japan, is to hold his next bout at an M-1 Global event, scheduled to take place in St. Petersburg on June 21.

“I can’t reveal the name of the future opponent now, but it’s to be announced shortly,” Vadim Finkelstein, Emelianenko’s promoter, told the M-1 Global press-service. “Fedor and his brother Aleksandr are currently at the training camp in the Netherlands. There’s one thing I can say for sure – this tournament won’t leave anyone feeling indifferent.”

St. Pete already has some experience in staging big MMA events. This March, the city’s Ice Palace was sold out for the M-1 Challenge tournament, involving the likes of Jeff Monson of the US and Aleksandr Emelianenko.

As for Fedor, he last fought in Russia in November 2011. The 35-year-old defeated the aforementioned Monson by unanimous decision in front of a Moscow crowd.

The Russian held one more bout after that, knocking out Japanese fighter Satoshi Ishii to see his record in the ring reach 33 wins, four losses and one no-contest.

I think June 21 2012 will be very exciting. Love to see Fedor figh the following fighters: Bobby Lashley Arlosky, Randy Couture, Brock Lesnar, , Dan Henderson, Werdum, , Bigfoot Silva, Alistair Overeem. & Caine Velasquez. Fedor has changed his game considerably and after watching Fedor beat Monson & Ishi in such an easy fashion , I know Fedor can regain his title. Fedor learnt from his mistakes 3 losses but no biggie these losses have only made Fedor stronger and more unpredictable as his entire fighting system has changed. Fedor no longer rushes for the kill he just tears you apart one bit at a time. And after dominating the MMA ring for 10 years Fedor still number one in my book.
