MMA: Emelianenko vs Singh Betting Odds

Arguably the greatest heavyweight in the history of MMA makes his return to action when Fedor Emelianenko faces Jaideep Singh at Rizin FF 2. With Fedor competing in 38 career fights, many against the greatest fighters of this generation, and Singh just two, it stands to reason that Emelianenko is a massive -1500 favorite in this one according to 5Dimes.

Let’s face it though; at this point of his career Fedor is a sideshow. Emelianenko has not fought quality competition since his Strikeforce days and even then he lost three consecutive fights against Fabricio Werdum, Bigfoot Silva and Dan Henderson. Since then, Fedor has been trotted out three times against scrubs to basically sell tickets to an event.

Despite this, Emelianenko has always been well rounded and has proven that he is plenty capable of ending a fight in any facet of the game. Fedor has 16 submission victories while winning 10 more via T/KO.

As with all fighters though, the chin is the first thing to go and Fedor demonstrated that with those three losses to end his Strikeforce career. That could cause legitimate concern for Fedor’s camp with Singh standing across from him. Singh may only have two career MMA fights under his belt, both victories by T/KO, but he is an accomplished kickboxer with 51 fights.

Singh, though sporting legitimate knockout power, has never really shown it in his kickboxing career with just 13 of his 40 wins coming via stoppage.

Is Fedor getting fed opponents at this point of his career? Yes, but that does not mean he is invincible. Emelianenko has earned the right to be the massive favorite and has proven he can still beat a lower class of opponent in his past three fights.
