Fedor is back.
Former PRIDE Fighting Championships heavyweight champ Fedor Emelianenko returns to the cage for the first time since June 2012 when he takes on Jaideep Singh in the main event of the Rizin Fighting Federation card in Saitama, Japan.
The event begins at 10 p.m. PST on Wednesday night, but viewers will have to wait until Thursday morning to watch the fight on television.
Also featuring former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal participating in a heavyweight tournament, the card will air tape-delayed on Spike TV on Thursday at 10 a.m.
Viewers do have an option to see the action unfold live, though a translator may be required.
For those who don’t want to stay up all night, or would prefer to wait for the English-language broadcast, here’s what you need to know if you want to watch.
Date: Thursday, Dec. 31
Time: 10 a.m. PST
TV: Spike TV (Cox 29, DirecTV 241, CenturyLink 146)
