Matt Boone

John Beyrooty from Showtime sent along the following:

The famed Fedor "The Last Emperor” Emelianenko took a humongous bite out of the Big Apple Wednesday as hundreds of appreciative fans arrived early and stayed late to catch a glimpse of the mixed martial arts superstar and universally recognized No. 1 heavyweight in the world at a Free Open Workout and Meet & Greet in New York City.
 
In a major news development, it was announced that the talented, exciting Fedor (30-1) of Russia would meet undefeated, hard-hitting Brett "The Grim” Rogers of Minneapolis on SHOWTIME® this fall. It will be Fedor’s first start since M-1 Global and STRIKEFORCE signed a ground-breaking agreement to co-promote major events.
