 An M-1 Selection press conference was held today.
Vadim Finkelstein announced that Fedor's Emelianenko's next bout was rescheduled from April to May.
His opponent remains the same: Fabricio Werdum.

If that fight happens then Strikeforce kills their heavy weight division and they no fights after this one. Not a good strategy for a growing show trying to build viewership.

 Does that mean the Henderson/Shields show is going to be on Showtime rather than CBS?

If Fedor is moved to May, I wonder why he wouldn't be fighting Overeem.

BanTheUKmmaNoobs - Yay! We have to wait longer for a bout nobody wanted in the first place!

It will be good to see him fight either way, but damnit why isn't he fighting Overeem?

 Agreed....

 Its as good of, if not a better fight than GSP vs Hardy...and Werdum beat Overeem before.

I like this match up. Werdum is always a legitimate submission threat. Fedor hasn't faced a submission fighter of this caliber since Noguiera. Werdum beat another legitimately good HW in Antonio Silva on the CBS card in a match that was pretty well received. Look at his last 10 fights. He has victories over Alistair, Aleks, Gonzaga, Vera, and Antonio Silva. People will always find a reason to complain.

I guess CindyO was right! Is there any indication as to why the bout was pushed back? Fedor injury? Overeem said he wanted to fight Fedor in May, so I guess that is not happening due to Werdum being promised a shot? Henderson is probably pissed he won't be on CBS, if their bout gets put on Showtime.

Not Fedor's fault, although the UFC shills will try to spin it that way (of course).

Overeem hasn't defended his Strikeforce belt in ages. Although I think he's great, he most likely can't pass a drug test.

Considering how eager Ubereerm has been in the past to defend his SF belt so far, in all fairness we have no idea which "May" he was talking about. 2010, 2015, 2021...

Timmy B - Scott Coker has let the nuts run the asylum.


Timmy - I'm honestly a little surprised you have the balls to comment on this after your epic bust of a thread about "Fedor vs Lesnar - July 3rd" last week...

Give up man.

 Thanks Igor...terrible fight, imo. Werdum offers nothing interesting. Still great to see Fedor fight anytime though.

Moderator - This title should say "Fedor's next fight against UFC washouts".

Interesting it is in May though now, thank you.


That's interesting considering the #1 contender in the UFC, Shane Carwin, hasn't beat anybody of note except Gonzaga, who Werdum beat twice, and more impressively.

when did Carwin become #1 contender over Mir, JDS and Cain?Anyways you both are full of it. Fedor is fighting very solid opponents and the Ufc hw division is better than ever.


When he was scheduled to fight Lesnar, the champion? I'm pretty sure that's the definition of #1 contender.

I wouldn't consider Werdum a washout. He left the UFC over a contract dispute didn't he?

SingleTMat - Thank you, Igor.

Was there a reason given for the fight being moved back to May?

 To make a great show , it took even a little time.

Strikeforce is making mistake after mistake.

I just dont see how they can carry on this way. Coker wanted two events a month? LOL at this.
