M-1 Global: Fedor Emelianenko vs. Pedro Rizzo Official Weigh-In Results

Fedor Emelianenko (33–4-1) and Pedro Rizzo (19-9) both took to the scales earlier today, June 20th, 2012 at the weigh-in event for tomorrow’s M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Rizzo, from the Ice Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia. Along with the main event of the evening fans will see M-1 Challenge lightweight champion Daniel Weichel taking on young Russian fighter Musa Khamanaev. Weichel’s first title defense was scheduled on M-1 Challenge 32 against Yuri Ivlev, but it was eventually moved to June 21 when Ivlev injured his hand on the training.

Well-known MMA veteran and world-class grappling specialist Jeff Monson (45-13) from American Top Team will become the toughest test in professional career of Russian heavyweight striker Denis Komkin (13-8). High-level grappling skills versus one-punch power – you are going to like that clash of styles!

Interim heavyweight champion Kenny Garner (10-3) will finally get the chance to avenge his loss against undefeated Georgian prospect Guram Gugenishvili (11-0). In May Kenny sent another heavyweight talent Magomed Malikov to knockout, and it seems like he is not going to stop on his way to the title of undisputed M-1 champion.
