It was announced on Thursday that Fedor Emelianenko’s next fight against Jeff Monson will be available to MMA fans in North America via pay-per-view. Integrated Sports Media will offer the card on iN Demand, DirecTV, DISH Network and Avail-TVN.
M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Monson will begin at 7:30 a.m. ET/4:30 a.m. PT from Moscow, Russia on November 20. Replays of the entire card will also be available later in the day.
“I cannot wait to compete again,” said Fedor, in a statement released by Integrated Sports Media. “Monson is a great athlete who is skilled in many areas. He is a very worthy opponent.”
Emelianenko has lost his last three fights, falling to Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Silva and Dan Henderson in Strikeforce. He was set to face Monson several years ago, but the two sides could not come to agreement on a contract.
