A month after being discharged from the capital’s covid hospital, the legendary Russian heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko resumed his training process at the base of his club in Stary Oskol.
Recall that Vadim Nemkov, the reigning Bellator light heavyweight champion, will have his first title defense in the light heavyweight grand prix quarterfinal match against American Phil Davis on April 16, and the return of the mentor to the team will surely become a serious motivating factor for the Russian. In a recent interview, Nemkov, answering a question about the health status of the heavyweight, said that Emelianenko is feeling well, but has not yet trained with them and remains in Moscow.
44-year-old Fedor Emelianenko last entered the cage in December 2019, knocking out former UFC champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the first round. Presumably, the Russian can hold his next fight this summer in Moscow.
