Thread: Fedor signs with Strikeforce

  1. #1

    Default Fedor signs with Strikeforce

    "STRIKEFORCE is a top fight promotion that houses some of the greatest fighters in the world," continued Emelianenko. "I am prepared to fight any of them."

    "We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to work with M-1 Global and Fedor," said STRIKEFORCE Founder and CEO Scott Coker, a martial arts fight promoter of over 25 years. "Fedor has been the reigning king of MMA's heavyweight division for quite some time now so being able to work with M-1 and Fedor will substantially increase the level of competition amongst the athletes in this weight class."

    the LA Times also said that he was signing with UFC.

    although it is a more likely scenario, I will wait until MMA Reporter announces it or the press conference.

    Looks like Fedor used the UFc as his mule in order to get the media attention he wanted and then delivered the news that he has signed with Strike Force. This mule business has been going on a lot lately. All part of doing business.
    Lets go Brent!

    Well played by fedor. He actually knew how to use a mule as opposed to others who allegedly used a small wrestling website with 8 mma forum members.

    Kudos to Mr. Emelianenko and Coker.

    Good for Strikeforce, I think they have a good product and I look forward to seeing Fedor soon. But I don't see anyone gambling on Barnett in the US, so I'm not sure who he's going to fight there. I'm also concerned that Strikeforce is losing lots of money - I have no idea, but unlike the UFC, they don't get PPV sales and DVD sales.

    Fedor should fight Overeem in the fall and then fight the winner of rogers/werdum.

    Well its official, Dana is at war with Strikeforce. Prepare for some foul language to be used to describe Coker and his org.

    I'd be worried about Overeem being tested. I think Strikeforce needs another good Hwt fight in the same card in case something goes wrong.

    I think Overeem is the only real challenge for Fedor.
