On their website M-1 Global have indicated that Fedor Emelianenko could be set for a return in a matter of months.
“Though no date for a return has been established, company officials have stated that an early fall fight would appeal to the fighter and his camp, possibly as early as September or October of this year.”
M-1 co-promoted this past weekend’s Strikeforce: Fedor Vs Werdum event, and of course currently manage Fedor who is a part owner in the company.
At this stage the indications are that an immediate rematch with Fabricio Werdum is on the cards, with all parties, including both fighters along with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker and M-1 Global co-founder Vadim Finkelchtein apparently in agreement that this is the right move.
“I think a rematch with Werdum will bring a different outcome than what we witnessed this evening and would be in the best interests of the promotions and for the sport. This is an opportunity for us to learn and evolve,” Finkelchtein noted after the fight.
