Please say this is actually going to happen!

In case you don't know why I am freaking out, when Fedor Emelianenko and Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic faced off in 2005, it was probably one of the best fights of all time. The pair went three full rounds under the Pride banner, and easily solidified both of their places in the hall of fame.

And it might happen again.

Cro Cop posted a flyer on his official Facebook page which shows each of their faces and the Rizin logo. Could this be an announcement? Or maybe confirmation that they will both be participating in the upcoming openweight tournament?

The flyer had no caption, but did have a date: September 25, 2016.

The promotion has yet to make an announcement so for now this is all just wildly amazing speculation.
