Mir (18-11) has not competed in over two years, thanks to his drug test suspension from United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA). The last time we saw the soon to be 39-year-old grappler, he was saddled with consecutive losses to Andrei Arlovski and Mark Hunt.
Emelianenko (36-5, 1 NC) turned 41 back in September and is coming off a technical knockout defeat to UFC import Matt Mitrione. “The Last Emperor” has not looked competitive against top-tier competition in many moons.
