It has been reported that Fedor will be fighting more than everyone thinks this year.

M-1 Global president, Vadim Finkelstein has made public that Fedor Emilianenko will be fighting at least three time in the next six months.

I am very glad to hear that we will be seeing more of Fedor. He is one of my favorite people to watch. He is so explosive and dominating.

I really do not see him having any problems with Tim silvia.. I am looking forward to seeing who else in gonna be thrown into the shark tank.

Any ideas who he will fight ?


Sylvia (obviously)

Some can. (Headline a card for another org)

Barnett (Probably around NYE, supposing they both win July 19)

It would be sick if he fought Tim, Josh, then Mirko before the years out.

He was rocked in the Fujita fight... But in the conventional way, the anwer to your question is no, Fedor can't even spell "hurt"

actually yes he has had recurring problems with one of his hands. I'm pretty sure he had to pull out of a PRIDE card where he was intended to fight NOG several years ago because he was either getting surgery on his hand or needed time for his hand to heal.

I can't remember specifics, but he's definitely had problems with one of his hands. Could be what bispbing heard about.

*edit*

Yeah, I looked it up. He broke his hand in the Goodridge fight:

"Next came a one-sided bout against heavy underdog Gary "Big Daddy" Goodridge at Total Elimination 2003.[35] Emelianenko took down Goodridge after wobbling him with standing combinations, then finished him with a ground and pound technique in the first round by referee stoppage after delivering unanswered punches and kicks to the head.[35] Emelianenko broke his hand in this fight, resulting in surgery.[32] He has since reinjured this hand, leading to the postponement of several bouts.[36]"

I'm pretty sure it was the OWGP that he missed as a result of surgery. I believe that's why Wanderlei ended up fighting in it.

This could be interesting .. looks like Fedor is going to be busy.. and if he takes all 3 fights which sounds like they will be big names.. there will be no doubt he is number 1.. this could be an interesting few months

Im pretty sure his english sucks. I would bet on him not being able to spell hurt.

It would probably be Tim, Josh, and Arlovski (assuming he beats Rothwell).

I'd like to see Randy get a crack at him, just so he'll shut his overrated mouth. Chuck destroyed Randy twice. Randy comes back and beats Sylvia (I'll admit that was a big win) and beats Gonzaga(doesn't look so great now). Two wins and he think's he's the #2 Hw in the world. This just in Randy...you're #4 right behind Noguiera and Barnett.

I'd love to see Fedor fight more, but I don't think he can stave off the injury bug. There was an article recently that said he wasn't even coming into this fight 100%. However Micheal Bisping got a hold of that inside info is anyones guess.
