Fedor Emelianenko vs Pedro Rizzo set for June 21st.

Fedor Emelianenko & Pedro Rizzo are set to lock horns on an M1 card scheduled for June 21st at the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg Russia. Fedor Emelianenko ruled the heavyweight division from his debut in may of 2000 to his first legitimate defeat in June of 2010. His 27 fight win streak will have him go down as one of the best fighters in the history of the sport. But back to back losses in Strikeforce followed by a couple of wins over lesser opposition, has seemed to have lit a fire under the stoic Russian as he has recently expressed interest in competing in the UFC. But instead Emelianenko will get Pedro "the Rock" Rizzo a once great heavyweight who has hung on way to long surviving on wins over guys like Gary Goodridge and Ken Shamrock while picking up losses to Gilbert Yvel, and Josh Barnett along the way.
