Monte Cox and the M-1 crew are in Dallas today in a closed-door meeting with Art of War to finalize a Fedor Emelianenko vs. Pedro Rizzo fight that would tentatively take place in Las Vegas in April. Money terms have been agreed and the meeting is to fnialize a deal and sign the contracts.

you have to scroll down about 3/4 of the page to find the blurb.

Getting a little sick of all these rumors.

Oh, and to the guy who said that Rizzo isnt a worthy opponent...

The guys that have been mentioned before this, and you wouldnt be excited to see it? Monson's been mentioned, Rizzo KOed him. Sounds like an upgrade in opponent to him, Hong Man, or any of the other rumored opponents.

But of course, Ive stopped buying into these rumors. Eventually it will get announced. Maybe.

EDIT:Ah, this fight is for April, not NYE. So, maybe they are setting up another fight for him mid-year. Sounds better.

What a joke !!

december 10, 2007, i officially remove Fedor of my top 10 !!

no need to explain it, it is clear enough now that he want to padded his record and he want to avoid any real competition what so ever.

If one day, he beat a top 10 guys, i will bring him back but for the moment, it is completely unfair to the fighters who fight for real to have to lose a place in the top 10 for a guy who simply his there for the money.
Fedor was the top fighter in the past, but a #1 ranking spot is not forever and you have to fight to stay there. Now it is too much for me to even continue to have him in the top 10 considering for how long he did nothing and he seem to want to continue to play safe for at less another years or so. enough is enough .

Thanks for clarifying. I didnt notice that when I posted the topic, i thought it was for the yarenoka card also. usually reading the entire article helps, im smart.

The only thing consistent with Fedor's rumored opponents is that they arent top HWs.

Totaly agree, Rizzo is definatly an upgrade he still has some of the nastiest leg kicks around, he can chop a tree down with those suckers

This could be a dangerous fight for Fedor though, The Rock still could have allittle bit of that KO power left in the tank, and that is all it may take, one good punch, or kick.
I would love to see that K.O.
