Many of us were wondering when Strikeforce heavyweight MMA fighter Fedor Emelianenko would be stepping back into the cage. His three-fight contract with Strikeforce leaves him with two fights remaining after defeating ‘The Grim’ Brett Rogers back in November of 2009.
Strikeforce CEO confirmed a bout between Fedor Emelianenko and Fabricio Werdum headed for June 2010. Fedor will be part of a co-promoted event involving Strikeforce and M-1 Global. We’ll keep you guys posted on the official fight card once it is released.
From Scott Coker:
“M-1 Global and Strikeforce entered into a three fight contract exclusive for Fedor to fight in a co-promotion between Strikeforce and M-1 Global, and as you know we did the first fight on Nov 7 in Chicago. Fedor is now scheduled to fight in June towards the end of the month in America against Fabricio Werdum.”
