Former heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko isn't taking his upcoming bout with Pedro Rizzo for granted. "The Last Emperor" has been putting in the work, as many speculate if this will be his final appearance inside a cage.
Fedor has rebounded from a rough stay in Strikeforce, defeating Jeff Monson and Satoshi Ishii in recent fights. Rizzo is a former UFC contender in the heavyweight division.
Emelianenko-Rizzo will comprise the main event from the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia on June 21.
