Fedor Emelianenko vs Antonio ‘Big Foot’ Silva likely for Jan. 29

It seems we may finally get to see The Last Emperor, Fedor Emelianenko return to MMA as it is being reported that he has agreed to a January 29th fight against Antonio ‘Big Foot’ Silva to take place in San Jose, California; at the HP Pavilion. This would be the Emelianenko’s first return since his loss in June to Fabricio Werdum.

Meanwhile the man they call Big Foot, will be coming off a KO win of Mike Kyle at the recent Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu card, and also a unanimous decision win over Andrei Arlovski back in May.

This will be Emelianenko’s final contract obligation with the organization and Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker has already hinted at a re-signing of the formerly undefeated heavyweight.

Also announced for the card will be Heisman Trophy winner, Herschel Walker. Also in the works is a Nick Diaz vs. Mayhem Miller bout, but it’s being reported by both sides that neither man wants to come out of their division.
