Junior dos Santos Wants Fedor Emelianenko Fight In Bellator

Last updated

Recently released UFC fighter Junior dos Santos recently spoke to AG Fight. dos Santos discussed a number of topics during the interview, including potentially joining Bellator MMA and fighting Fedor Emelianenko.

‘I am a big fan of Fedor” Junior dos Santos stated. “And it would be something really cool to be able to face him. I don’t know what his situation is, if he’s still fighting and I know he’s at Bellator.”

“Bader who called us, who would welcome us, would be very interesting. He’s a really tough guy too” dos Santos continued. “A rematch against Alistair Overeem himself, who always finds a way to get away from this issue. It can be at Bellator, wherever it is.”

Ryan Bader on Junior dos Santos

Bellator MMA Heavyweight Champion recently told MMA Junkie that Junior dos Santos could be a good addition to the promotion’s roster. “Look what Bellator did building the light heavyweights. Bellator’s model is changing a little bit. They’re creating their own fighters, betting on younger athletes.”

“Yes, I’d like these guys to come” Bader continued. “But I don’t know if Bellator’s going to hire older fighters right now. See. I don’t know if Overeem’s retired. ‘Gypsy’ definitely looks like you want to keep fighting. He would be a good addition,”
