Strikeforce Lands Fedor

The most dominant heavyweight MMA fighter of all-time, Fedor Emelianenko, is heading to Strikeforce after a deal was struck today. The terms of the deal allow co-promoting with the M-1 promotion.

While the UFC attempted to land Fedor, the deal was just not in the cards. Reportedly, Fedor's management insisted on M-1 co-promoting events in the UFC, which they wouldn't approve. The UFC offered to allow M-1 to advertise on Fedor's fight shorts, banner, and t-shirt.

The most likely opponents for Fedor include Brett Rogers, Fabricio Werdum, Gilbert Yvel and Alistair Overeem. Unfortunately, Alistair injured his hand in a nightclub incident in Holland.
