Scott Coker: Fedor Emelianenko retirement fight not going to happen in Moscow


Bellator president Scott Coker revealed on Saturday that the promotion has had to pivot with Emelianenko’s retirement fight due to the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine.

“It’s definitely not going to happen in Moscow this year,” Coker told reporters following Bellator 276. “We’re not gonna do Fedor’s retirement fight there for obvious reasons. We’ll be looking for an alternative site at some point, but we’re going to sit down with Fedor when he comes to [Bellator 277] in San Jose and see what he’s thinking.”
