Fabrício Werdum and Fedor Emelianenko are all set to headline the Strikeforce card this Saturday in California. However, the fighters already found themselves staring each other down at the pre-fight press conference.
“I don’t feel I have any particular advantage over Fedor that I’d like to discuss. This was the best training camp of my life. This Saturday I have to just what I did in preparing for the fight to be victorious,” said black belt Fabrício Werdum.
Now Fedor discards the possibility of retiring once the bout is out of the way:
“After each of my fights I evaluate whether I should stop or not. I’m going to keep fighting until it reaches a point where I don’t effective anymore and don’t manage to do what I want to,” he told MMAJunkie.com
