Fedor Emelianenko Could Be Returning To MMA

Shit possibly just got real.

Bloody Elbow has translated their source:

“I was able to recover and heal old injuries. The last three years I have maintained physical form, but this level is not enough to go into battle, therefore recently I started intensive training. We have assembled a team of versatile coaches and athletes who will help me in the training process” Emelianenko continued. “There is still work to do to prepare to leave the ring. Negotiations are underway with promotions. Once agreements are reached, there will be information on the date of the fight and rival.”

No clue who he would sign with if he does return, the obvious choice would be the UFC if negotiations go well. If Fedor is able to return to elite level training, does he have what it takes to compete with upper level heavyweights, or will he be a sideshow attraction in Bellator?
