The return of the most dangerous heavyweight in the world is confirmed for the June-26 Strikeforce show. Russia’s Fedor Emelianenko (31w, 1l) faces Jiu-Jitsu world champion Fabricio Werdum (13w, 4l) in what promises to be a riveting fight, in the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
The much awaited bout is to be broadcast live across the USA on cable channel Showtime. The Strikeforce event will be co-promoted by M-1 Global, which has contractual ties to Fedor.
Werdum has a submission win over the Russian’s brother, Alexander Emelianenko, while Fedor has two wins over Jiu-Jitsu star Rodrigo Minotauro. What about you, who takes it?
