“[Fedor] agreed. He’s ready to fight,”
“With his progress from training, I can only think he’ll be back the way he was. If he doesn’t win, he’ll make his own decisions like he does now. If he stops, he stops. But if he wins, I think he’ll continue fighting.”
According to MMAWeekly, the two have also agreed upon a catchweight bout of 220 lbs, removing Dan Henderson’s belt from the equation.
According to sources close to Emelianenko’s management team at M-1 Global, the fight is currently in the works for a late July date in a co-promoted M-1 Global/Strikeforce show.
While final agreements are not in place, the current plan is to feature Emelianenko vs. Henderson in a special heavyweight attraction with the agreed weight for the fight to be at 220 pounds.
Another interesting note is that this would be Henderson’s last obligated contract fight under the Strikeforce banner. Should he win, Henderson has already mentioned that he would love to go back to the UFC if they came knocking for his return.
