I did accept a fight with Fedor. He likely won't fight again. I meet with Rizin and they have a great offer but NOTHING is signed.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Shane Carwin gained his release from the promotion earlier this year after a self-imposed retirement.
Immediately following that news, it was rumored that Carwin would head to RIZIN for a possible fight with Fedor Emelianenko.
It appears that Carwin has accepted such a fight, though the heavyweight doesn’t believe it will happen.
