Fedor Emelianenko's next opponent is...

...Gegard Mousasi in an exhibition sparring match.

"The Last Emperor" and "The Dreamcatcher" are scheduled to touch gloves for the upcoming M-1 Global: 'Breakthrough' event from Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Missouri, on August 28.

From the M-1 Global press release:

"We were blown away by just how popular Fedor's exhibition vs. Aoki in Japan was. Fedor and Gegard have sparred many times together and the sessions have always been intense. Now fight fans watching on HDNet and those attending live in Kansas City will get a rare glimpse at two of the best fighters in the world sparring each other."

Mousasi is set to battle Renato "Babalu" Sobral for the Strikeforce light heavyweight championship at the upcoming 'Carano vs. Cyborg' event on August 15 from San Jose.

Emelianenko, who recently clowned lightweight grappler Shinya Aoki in an exhibition grappling match last April, is expected to make his Strikeforce debut later this Fall against an opponent to be named.

Fans will be able to see all the 'action' go down live via HDNet on fight night.
