So Fedor Emelianenko’s Return Opponent Has Been Revealed And He’s…Not Good

(via Super Fight League

Look, I don’t know what we were expecting when it was announced that Fedor Emelianenko would be un-retiring from MMA — shattering a decades old CagePotato ban in the process — to take on a mystery opponent hand-picked by the sketchy Japanese businessman for the low, low rate of two and a half million dollars. I mean, once you rule out the UFC and Bellator heavyweight rosters, who are you even left with? Jeff Monson? Sergei Kharitonov? The guy who shivved Alex Emelianenko in the showers last month?

But even ruling out the Monson’s and Ishii’s that Fedo has already beaten, you’d think that the man worthy of bringing “The Last Emperor” out of retirement would at least have one of the following:

-Name/Nostalgia value

-A professional record of at least 5 fights

-A win in the last two years

Based on how I just phrased that, how many of those attributes do you think Emelianenko’s opponent has?

The answer, as it just so happens, is LOLOLOLOLOL NONE YOU DUMMIES. That’s because it was revealed earlier today that Emelianenko will be taking on Singh Jaideep in his return to the sport on New Year’s Eve in Japan.

“What’s a Singh Jaideep, and can I collect them all?” you ask. Well, Jaideep is Indian-Japanese heavyweight kickboxer who stands at 6′ 5” and holds the dubious honor of capturing the K-1 World Grand Prix champion back in 2009. On the less positive side, he also has not won a kickboxing match since 2011 and only holds one professional MMA victory to his credit — a first round TKO via elbows over Alireza Tavak back at SFL 19.

So yeah, it’s less than ideal, but again, what could we have expected? Fedor’s picking up an easy paycheck, and 99% of us complaining about this absolute squash match will check out a gif of the finish the next day at the bare minimum. So I say, bully for you, Fedor! May you bathe in the tears of butthurt keyboard warriors after claiming your most glorious and absolute victory to date!! Rah-rah, Fedor! Rah-rah, Fedor!!!
