Gracie being considered as opponent for Fedor


Fedor Emelianenko will next compete in June in his home country of Russia against an as of yet unnamed opponent, but a new contender has entered the fray.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt and student of legendary trainer Renzo Gracie, Rolles Gracie is now under consideration for the bout with Emelianenko on June 21 in St. Petersburg.

While there is no deal in place at this time, Gracie is one of the leading candidates to potentially land the spot against the former pound-for-pound king later this year.

With a 6-1 record overall, Rolles Gracie may have far less experience in the cage than Emelianenko, it doesn’t mean he’s not a competitor who has show drastic improvements over the last year.

How about Bellator? Rolles is stronger competition than Cole Konrad? The truth is that Fedor would wash out of Bellator too.

How exactly does that statement make even a little bit of sense? Fedor is hiding from the competition, somehow because the UFC bought a minor league organization?

It makes me sad that Fedor is widing up his career with these kind of fights........... It is a DAMN shame that Strikeforce sold out to the UFC...

He got headbutted and then hit by a nasty hook. One fight is hardly enough to call him glassjawed.
