Bellator goes to the Far East for the first time on Saturday, December 28, as we work with the Resin Fighting Federation on Bellator 237 from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
The organization brings two MMA myths to “Land of the Rising Sun” as Fedor Emelianenko fights Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in the headliner.
Emelianenko (38-6, a non-contest) returns to Japan for the first time since TKO’s first win over Singh Jaideep at the Rizin World Grand Prix 2015 Finale in December 2015. The man seen by the majority of MMA experts as the Largest heavyweight in mixed martial arts history competed mainly in Japan for the first half of his career under the PRIDE promotion where he ran through competition to become the heavyweight champion and best fighter in the world.

Questions surrounded by Emelianenko and whether he will continue his legendary career after being knocked out by Ryan Bader in 35 seconds in the heavyweight Grand Prix final at Bellator 214 in January. But it was all just rumors when Emelianenko announced in June that he had signed a new deal with Bellator to stay in the company and end his career there.
Jackson (38-13) will be racing for the first time since the Bellator 206 in September 2018, when he stopped Wanderlei Silva in the second round to win a two-round. Like Emelianenko, “Rampage” put himself on the map as well as competing in PRIDE from 2001-2006.
The Fedor vs. Rampage clash is not destined to be one where the winner moves to a title fight against champion Ryan Bader. It’s clearly meant for the hard-core sports fans and the people who watched both kids back to their top.
