Following the official announcement of Fedor Emelianenko vs. Jaideep Singh headlining RIZIN 2 on December 31, in response to fan complaints on Fedor Emelianenko’s official fan page, Fedor’s reps revealed that RIZIN did indeed try making a better fight after initial backlash in October.

After another fan questioned just how hard they tried when numerous fighters had thrown their name into the hat, Fedor’s reps explained again.
