Fedor Emelianenko will fight against Tim Johnson on Saturday, October 23 at Bellator 269. Fedor is one of the greatest heavyweight fighters and he is on his farewell tour. He will take on Tim Johnson, who is a former interim heavyweight champion.
Fedor wanted to pick someone younger and on the rise for the matchup. Former UFC heavyweight champions Junior Dos Santos and Josh Barnett wanted to match up for the fight. But Fedor chose Johnson as his opponent.
“Tim Johnson recently had a nice winning streak and that shows that he’s quite a good fighter,” Fedor said, “This was something that I took into consideration when looking at opponents.”
