Fedor Planning To Fight At The End Of Year In Japan or Russia

Fedor Emelianenko vs Fabricio Werdum

With Werdum injured until early to mid 2011, Fedor Emelianenko’s management M-1 Global has plans to keep him active by fighting once more in 2010.

“We plan to organize an interim fight for Fedor. We are considering two options: Japan and Russia. We have a lucrative offer from the Japanese partners, who are interested in Fedor fighting on the New Year’s Eve. This is the most interesting option for us. But we are also not excluding an option that Fedor Emelianenko will fight in Russia, sometime in December. We have to organize another fight for Fedor, as Fabricio Werdum is currently injured and no one knows when he will come back. Strikeforce have absolutely nothing against the rematch, that’s exactly why we are planning the last fight on Fedor’s contract to be against Werdum.” [Lowkick]

Many would love to see him fight the Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, but with only one fight left on his Strikeforce contract, it is clear that Fedor is only interested in avenging his loss to Fabricio Werdum.

    Fedor was way over rated and would have got killed in the UFC. Just like Mirco Cro Cop.

    Troll- we can only speculate as how he would have done in the UFC and when the opportunity came, he was past his prime but to say that he is way over rated is going overboard. As of right now, he has to go down as being the best HW of all time. maybe lesnar, carwin, Cain or even overeem may change that in a few years but for now, he is the best HW of all time.

    Who fuckin cares about Fedor. He's out of the spotlight….he would get killed in the UFC…..and hopefully he losses his next fight and retires so we don't have to talk about him anymore. He's not even the best heavyweight in Strikeforce at the moment.

    As a huge Fedor fan, I can only defend him for so long.

    Honor the contract Fedor!

    Fight Overeem and regain your name, duck him and lose all that greatness forever. In his Pride days he never would have …what's the point in rehashing it all again?
