Fedor Emelianekno vs. Jeff Monson getting PPV treatment

Early-rising fans of Fedor Emelianenko will be able to see “The Last Emperor” take on Jeff Monson from Moscow, Russia on November 20 when “The Last Emperor” attempts to get back on track or at least retire with his head held high in the wake of a victory.

M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Monson has secured pay-per-view rights with iN Demand, DirecTV, DISH Network and Avail-TVN through Integrated Sports Media for the card to be shown live beginning at 7:30 a.m. ET/4:30 a.m. PT.

Emelianenko will be trying to halt a career-worse three-fight losing streak, as the former champion has been stopped by Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Silva, and Dan Henderson. He was released from his contract with Strikeforce after the Henderson loss.

Monson was originally looking to face Fedor back in 2007, but the two sides could not work out a deal. “The Snowman” is 9-1 in his last 10 fights.

“I cannot wait to compete again,” said Emelianenko, in a statement released by Integrated Sports Media. “Monson is a great athlete who is skilled in many areas. He is a very worthy opponent.”

M-1 Global lightweight champion Jose Figueroa will also be on the card, defending his title against Daniel Weichel. Cost for the PPV is $29.95.

    A waste of money if you ask me, but how great would it be if Fedor lost to Monson?

    If it was $10 less I’d get my punk ass up for it, but they just missed my cut off. It’s really one decent fight I guess, because there is no hype for any of the other match ups. Stupid ass M1 should have tried to get at least a co-main even together.

    I pick Monson by…….lol……, I don’t. I just can’t. As rough as Fedor’s slide has been, he will beat Monson.
