According to Mixfight.ru, M-1 Global will hold a press conference tomorrow to discuss Fedor’s New Year’s Eve event in Japan.
Fedor was apparently asked by mixfight.ru, if he misses the PRIDE organization. His response:
“Pride was a great organization with the best fighters and I believe that now M-1 Global will become new Pride.”
It has also been confirmed that Alexander Emelianenko and Roman Zentsov will take part in the event as well.
What is not confirmed at this point, despite heavy rumors to the contrary, is Fedor’s opponent. Hong Man Choi is said to be a possibility but nothing has been signed as of today, and Choi is scheduled to take place in a K-1 fight three weeks before New Years Eve, so there could be some complications there.
