Bellator MMA president Scott Coker has a history with former heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko. And so that led Coker to Japan to ring in the New Year.
The two were together at an event that included both MMA and pro wrestling bouts in Tokyo Wednesday. Coker has mentioned in the past few weeks plans to talk with Emelianenko, pushing many to believe he could be brought back to the sport.
Coker and Emelianenko previously worked together under the Strikeforce banner.
