Report: Ricardo Arona signs with M-1; could fight Fedor in Dec.

The website is quoting Vale Tudo news as reporting that Ricardo Arona has announced signing a four fight contract with M-1. It also appears that Arona could fight Fedor Emelianenko as soon as December:

According to “Vale Tudo News”, Brazilian ace Ricardo Arona (13-5-0) announced that he has signed a four fight deal with Russian organization M-1. The opponent(s), due to contractual issues, weren’t revealed. Arona said that he is now focused in his debut, in December. When asked if the first fight would be with Fedor Emilianenko (26-1-0), Ricardo Arona smiled and kept his silence.

Arona is currently in Europe conducting a series of seminars.

    Well, this could def. be a great rematch for both guys. Not sure anyone has watched Kings but this could be Arona’s rematch of the century. Just remember that when they both fought in kings…they couldn’t punch in the face while their oppenent was on the ground.

  • This is a terribly sourced rumor, by the way. Nobody has been able to really figure out what Vale Tudo News is. Arona vs. Fedor without RINGS rules may be another killing by Fedor.

    How many will pay to see that?

  • gipper says:

    i’d pay to see fedor smash arona. why not? arona might even be able to put up a fight for a round or 2.

    I’m more interested in this Kings organization. I’d like to hear more about it; is it the new name for M1?

    Rings organization

    This was a japanese pre-cursor to Pride. Pride poached a lot of their talent roster and eventually rings went under…… rings had kinda wacky round rules, no strikes to the head on the ground… is funny to see fedor work the ground and pound by hitting the guy in the shoulders chest and abs….

  • paddiosf says:

    What no hits to the head on the ground? Like kicking in the Head or Punching to the head on the ground?

  • bubbafat says:

    Arona came out and said he heard these rumours too. He’s still talking with HCF and an unnamed American org.
