According to Tatame.com Pedro Rizzo has received an offer to fight Fedor Emelianenko:

The champion of Art of War, Pedro Rizzo, traveled yesterday to Holland to help his friend Peter Aerts for the K-1 GP. He also traveled with the objective of sharpening his striking for a possible fight with Fedor Emelianenko.

That is awsome, I love Rizzo. I don't think he will be able to hang with Fedor now days, but I would love to see the fight. WAR Rizzo.

I suppose it makes more sense than Monson. Why dont they set up Fedor to fight Barnett?! With Randy contracted to the ufc for the next 9months, Barnett is the only fight that makes sense.

absolutely, fedor vs barnett is second only to fedor vs randy and barnett is probally a tougher test for fedor right now.

It seems like M-1 is trying to sign all of the big names in the HW division that aren't signed. I bet Dana is glad he got Lesnar now. I think that M-1 is trying to set up a "4-man tournament" for the belt.

Fedor
Rizzo

Barnett
Monson

With the idea of a "supermatch" between Barnett and Fedor in the future? Does anyone else see this, or is it just me?

I could see M-1 dong that but it really doesnt make sense. Barnett and Fedor are miles ahead of monson and Rizzo. Just seems like they are drawing it out.

If this is the case they would definitely be trying to pick up right where PrideFC left off. That was the plan they had for the Open-Weight GP.

That would be a pretty good fight, i think it would be one worth watching i would like to see rizzo pull it off but i still see fedor coming off with the win.

I know that Fedor will most likely win this fight, but I have been a fan of Rizzo's for a long time. I feel like he was one of the best fighters that got oh so close but just couldn't touch that UFC gold. I want to see this fight and I'll be rooting hard for Rizzo just because it would be crazy if he was the first one to decisively Fedor. WAR RIZZO!

Agree.... I've always wanted to see that Barnett-Monson match, plus it'll be a good way to start with all those guys in the M-1 HW-d

Pedro Rizzo.......thats the best guy they can find. If you were the best guy in the world i just dont get why you would ever want to fight a guy not even in the top 20. Its a lose lose situation....I'll never get the decisions Fedor makes.

yeah i guess its better then jeff monson but it still is not a fight I would be waiting in line for.

I personally would rather see fedor fight a top 10 heavyweight, or even a top 10 light heavyweight

i mean fighting a middleweight was odd enough but now rizzo? the only reason rizzo even beat monson was because the snow man was dumb enough to stand with him the whole fight

Im still mourning over the fact that the ufc didnt get fedor and then on top of things randy's resignation.
