Former PRIDE Heavyweight Champion Fedor Emelianenko, currently mired in an 0-3 slump, will try to get back into the win column against Jeff Monson on Nov. 20 under the M-1 banner at the Olimpiskiy Sports Complex in Moscow, Russia.

From "The Last Emperor" (via

"During my last three fights I always had a feeling that I can win. But somehow, in the last moment something always went wrong. I'm very happy to fight at home. Since the majority of my fights took place in Japan or United States, I'm happy to be fighting in Russia again after 4 years. I would like to thank Jeff Monson for the opportunity to fight him, I always followed his career and hope that we'll be able to show a beautiful fight for the fans."

Can Emelianenko salvage what was once considered one of the most decorated careers in mixed martial arts? Or will the stocky submission specialist send him back behind the iron curtain for good?
