Fedor Emelianenko is expected to return to the octagon for Bellator this October, per Ariel Helwani.

Emelianenko’s opponent is to be determined. His last fight was against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at Bellator 237 in Saitama, Japan, in December 2019.

Bellator will hold a press conference at 11am EST tomorrow with Emelianenko, commentator John McCarthy and company CEO Scott Coker.

Emelianenko signed with Bellator in 2016 and has amassed a 3-2 record in the promotion. He defeated New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Yuji Nagata at Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2003.
