MMA Leak: Alexander Emelianenko Will Rematch Jeff Monson at LEGEND 3 in Russia

A lot of us assumed that the Russian promotion LEGEND would be a one and done show, especially after their expensive looking first event, complete with laser shows, dancers dressed like birds, and PRIDE-esque walkout vidos.  LEGEND 1 featured the likes of Alexander Emelianenko, Bob Sapp, Badr Hari, Dzhabar Askerov, Artur Kyshenko, and other European kickboxing superstars.

Early last month, LEGEND announced their second show set for November- headlined again by Alexander Emelianenko, who would now be taking on recent K-1 Champion Mirko “Cro Cop” Filopovic. While the battle between the two MMA icons is certainly an interesting and long-awaited rematch from the PRIDE days, FSA recently discovered that the third LEGEND show already has a main event, and boy does the younger Emelianenko brother seem to be getting a ton of screentime.


For LEGEND 3, which as of now has no date, Alexander will be stepping into the ring against the dangerous Jeff Monson, who continues to submit highly skilled opponents even at the ripe old age of 42. Monson is currently coming off two losses but he defeated Emelianenko in 2012 at M-1 Challenge 35.

As of now, no other bouts for either LEGEND 2 or 3 have been announced.
