Fedor Emelianenko returns to action June 21st in Russia and it was announced this week that his opponent will be Pedro Rizzo who will be stepping into the cage after a nearly two year lay-off.
M-1 official Evgeni Kogan made the bout official via his Twitter account. Bobby Lashley had at one point been a rumored opponent as did Rolles Gracie.
The fight will take place at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia and will most likely air on pay-per-view.
The Emelianenko-Rizzo bout is the only fight announced for the card so far.
