According to a report out of Brazil by Combate, Fabio Maldonado will take on Fedor Emelianenko this June in Russia.

The bout would take place under the Fight Nights promotion, meaning it will air live on UFC Fight Pass.

Emelianenko (35-4) ended his retirement this past New Year’s Eve, returning and fighting Jaideep Singh at Rizin FF. Maldonado (22-9) fought several times for the UFC before his release after a loss to Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
