M-1 Global Announces Fedor Emelianenko vs. Jeff Monson For Nov. 20 Event In Russia

M-1 Global has finally confirmed an expected heavyweight bout between their Fedor Emelianenko and Jeff Monson.

Monson revealed the fight earlier this month, claiming it would take place on Nov. 12 in Russia. Monson had the location right, but not the date. With the UFC’s big FOX debut and a Manny Pacquiao fight already scheduled for Nov. 12, M-1 has settled on Nov. 20 instead.

The fight will take place at Olympic Stadium in Moscow, Russia. The broadcast plans for the fight are unknown, but Showtime is believed to be a possibility. Hopefully we’ll get to see it one way or another.
