Fedor aligned with former Pride boss Nobuyuki Sakakibara’s new promotion, whose name has yet to be announced. One name that has been discussed is Samurai FC, but that has yet to be finalized. That announcement is also expected to come Thursday, along with several more details about the organization.

Singh’s one win in MMA came in June 2013 when he defeated Alireza Tavak at Super Fight League 19. The 2009 K-1 World Grand Prix in Seoul champion hasn’t won a kickboxing match since 2011.

The promotion will hold three events at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan in three days at the end of the year on Dec. 29, 30 and 31.

The Emelianenko-Singh card will air via tape delay in the United States on Spike TV.
