MMA Weekly is reporting that PRIDE heavyweight king pin, Fedor Emelianenko has announced that a speculated fight between he and Tim Sylvia is now official. Fedor has stated on his personal website that he has signed the contract. (I would link you to the website but Google tells me that it may harm my computer)

The bout will take place on July 19th in the United States but as of yet, no official promotion has been named. However, the general feeling is that a promotion headed up by clothing giant, Affliction will hold the fight.

MMA Weekly is also reporting that Fedor has agreed to two more fights this year. These fights will take place in October and December respectively.

There you go people. Fedor is fighting someone legitimate.
