Fedor returning to Strikeforce HW division as it ends?

Following recent back-to-back victories for the former pound-for-pound best Fedor Emelianenko, many questioned if we would possibly see the Russian return to the now Zuffa owned Strikeforce heavyweight division. The platform where we saw “The Last Emperor” fall from grace with three straight devastating losses in the cage.

Yes, the Strikeforce heavyweight division is coming to an end after the tourney, but perhaps this would be Emelianenko’s chance to prove he deserves to make the transition to the UFC.

So could Emelianenko fight the tourney winner? It is not out of the question.

That’s interesting,” Coker said. “I’m not sure what Fedor has planned. I haven’t spoken to M-1. I know (M-1 executive) Steve Bash was in the audience tonight, but we haven’t had that conversation yet.”
