“We’re excited to be bringing Fedor’s comeback to North American MMA fans,” Integrated Sports Media president Doug Jacobs said. “Everybody wants to know what the great Fedor has left and Monson, who is an extremely dangerous veteran, figures to up to the challenge of fighting Emelianko in his backyard.

“Only $29.95.” At 7:30 in the morning. What a deal!
I got to say you would have to be a pretty die-hard Fedor fan to get up that early and spend $30 to see Fedor fight Jeff Monson. Anyone gonna do it?
