The former UFC fighter Fabricio Werdum has confirmed with tatatme.com that his next Strikeforce fight will most likely be against Fedor ‘The Last Emperor’ Emelianenko. Their heavyweight match-up looks to be aimed for the April 16 fight card, scheduled to air on CBS, a national television network in the United States.
Since Alistair Overeem still doesn’t look like he wants to defend his Strikeforce heavyweight title anytime soon, Werdum seems to be the only fighter left for Fedor. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Judo black belt is coming off a unanimous decision win over Antonio ‘Big Foot’ Silva, while Fedor knocked out Brett Rogers in that same fight card.
Expect a great fight between two great warriors of this sport!
From Fabricio Werdum:
“The fight against Fedor is 99% confirmed to April 16th. I have three months to train to the most important fight of my life..I already have a strategy set. I can’t submit a guy like Fedor in the arm, in the leg, he would never tap… I’ll make history. Beat Fedor doesn’t mean I’m better than him, because he’s the man, but I’ll be better than him in that night.”
