M-1 Global: 'Fedor vs Monson' secures North American pay-per-view distributor for Nov. 20 event

via cdn1.sbnation.com

You'll just have to wake up at the crack of dawn to see it. On a Sunday! But don't let that stop you from coughing up $30 to watch Fedor Emelianenko vs. Jeff Monson throw down in Mother Russia.

Here's what you need to know:

Event: M-1 Global: "Fedor vs. Monson"
Date: Nov. 20, 2011 at 7:30 a.m. ET
Price: $29.95
Where to watch: iN Demand, DirecTV, DISH Network and Avail-TVN

"Breakfast with Fedor" was made available by Integrated Sports Media (ISM), who will broadcast the upcoming pay-per-view live from the Olympic Arena in Moscow, Russia.

Emelianenko was recently released from his contract with Strikeforce after a first round technical knockout loss to Dan Henderson in late July. It marked the third consecutive defeat for "The Last Emperor," who amassed one of the most impressive career resumes in the history of organized fighting under the Pride FC banner prior to the slump.

The Russian cyborg, who has called five different promotions home during his decade-long career, refused to hang up the gloves after his most recent loss to Henderson, which he felt was perhaps stopped too soon.

He'll get his chance for redemption when he takes on the "Snowman," a 54-fight veteran, who has won eight of his last nine bouts against no one really that noteworthy.

Monson most recently dropped a unanimous decision to Daniel Cormier at Strikeforce: "Overeem vs. Werdum" on June 18, 2011. The American Top Team (ATT)-trained fighter looked every one of his 40 years, getting battered and bruised by the much quicker, and younger, heavyweight prospect.

Despite his lackluster performance, Monson, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and a two-time ADCC champion, remains a significant threat to submit anyone if he can get the fight to the floor. Emelianenko, however, has been tapped just once (Fabricio Werdum) in 36 career fights.

Should be interesting.
