Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker Says Fedor Emelianenko Will Fight Fabricio Werdum In June

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.”
