Coker: Fedor to return at July Strikeforce

by Chris Nelson | source:

“Fedor’s gonna fight sometime in July,” Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” on Wednesday. “It’s probably toward the end of July or mid-July, but we have fights with Fedor that we’re gonna honor and continue forward. We’re gonna do the co-branding exercise that we do with M-1 every time we do fights with them.”

“The opponent has not been chosen, but I think having Fedor involved close to the tournament as an alternate is definitely a possibility,” he added.

man, Fedor should be fighting "legend" status fighters at this point.I guess it is better to not care at this point, it is too infuriating how poorly Fedor handles his career.

I wonder if Fedor really wants to pursue fighting, or if M1 is pretty much forcing him to do so.

LMFAO@ you faggots blowing off a Fedor/Del Rosario fight, yet no one said shit about Shane Carwin fighing a guy who hasn't fought in 5 years in his next fight..   Del Rosaro is the most promising young HW out there.      He's in the mold of guys like Mir and Barnett (6'3, 250, good striker/excellent on the ground) but only much quicker and more athletic.

The tournament was already a joke when they decided not to have the belt on the line in any of the fights. Putting Fedor in as an alternate is dumb, but won't make it look much worse than it already does.

Yep, he needs to fight Werdum, IMO. I really believe Fedor would win it without too much trouble.If he wins that fight, at least he avenged one of his only two real losses, and then he could go out on a positive note. Sad that Fedor gets caught with a quick sub, then gets beat on by a guy 50 lbs heavier, and suddenly he sucks and can't even beat nobodies.

This. Fedor should wait. There is no fight for him so soon.

M-1 will work Fedor like a horse! At least nobody was pushing Mirko. Fedor retired, yet I bet all the leeching assholes around him are pushing him to fight.That said, I'd like a Crocop fight.
