Fedor Emelianenko training in UFC gloves for June 21 mystery fight (Video)

Former PRIDE Heavyweight Champion and Strikeforce jetsam Fedor Emelianenko is currently gearing up for his upcoming fight against "an opponent to be named" at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia on June 21, 2012.

And speaking of gear, "The Last Emperor" was spotted donning a pair of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) gloves (0:50) during his workout at the Vital Skills MMA Clinic in Amstelveen, Netherlands, which is sure to send fan boys into a tizzy after another round of Fedor/UFC rumors were resurrected in recent weeks.

Not to mention the Alistair Overeem fiasco.

Emelianenko snapped a three-fight losing skid with a unanimous decision win over Jeff Monson last November, before making it two in a row with a first round knockout finish of judo expert Satoshi Ishii in the DREAM: "Genki Desu Ka Omisoka" year-end MMA extravaganza in Japan.

Are the UFC gloves a sign of things to come? Or is the M-1 camp trolling fans through viral videos?
