Video: Fedor Emelianenko training for Pedro Rizzo in the Netherlands

Former PRIDE and Strikeforce star Fedor Emelianenko has a pretty decent vertical leap. Ya' know, for a pudgy Russian.

"The Last Emperor" is seen training for his upcoming fight against former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Pedro Rizzo, scheduled for June 21, 2012 at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.

And he's doing it "new school" style at the Vital Skills training camp in the Netherlands, alongside Peter Teijsse, Maxim Leijdekker, Ernesto Hoost, Jerrel Venetiaan and Marco de Wit, among others.

Emelianenko (33-4) 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.

Can he make it three straight against the heavy hands of "The Rock?"
