Fedor Taking On Shinya Aoki In Exhibition Match On April 29

Fedor EmelianenkoWhat seemed like a ridiculous rumor barely worth mentioning yesterday has become a reality today.

Fedor Emelianenko and Shinya Aoki will partake in a exhibition match at the DEEP M-1 Challenge on April 29.

Also announced today, Fedor Emelianenko will face DREAM’s Shinya Aoki in an exhibition match at the DEEP M-1 Challenge event in Japan on April 29th.

Update: I’m not sure if Fedor vs. Aoki is a sambo exhibition, it could also be just an exhibition with sambo-like rules. The detailed rules will be revealed like a day before the fight.

Update #2: Fedor vs. Aoki will be 3-5 minutes long. On it says Exhibition Sambo-Rules.

Can’t say I saw this coming. It should be interesting to see to say the least. I got Fedor by armbar.

In other Japanese MMA news, DREAM has officially announced that Jason “Mayhem” Miller will be taking on Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza for the now vacant DREAM middleweight title at DREAM.9.
