Fedor Emelianenko is getting set to make his Strikeforce debut in the next month or so, and faces a formidable opponent in the undefeated Brett Rogers. Rogers has racked up wins over the likes of Jon Murphy, Ralph Kelly, and most recently, former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski. Fedor recently noted to Inside MMA that Rogers presents a difficult challenge for him.

"Brett Rogers is in very strong physical shape," Fedor noted. "He has a great knockout punch and is very big and very dangerous."

Despite the fight being announced a month ago, an exact date for the bout has yet to be announced. Fedor admitted that he wasn't sure when the fight would take place, saying it will "take place sometime in October or November, the exact date is still being identified."

Fedor also stated that this will be his last fight this year, and he will probably not fight again until February of 2010.

Fedor was asked if MMA fans should forget about a fight between him and Brock Lesnar from ever happening, to which "The Last Emperor" replied, "definitely not."

"I think that this fight will definitely take place sometime," he continued. "I hope that finally we'll find some common language with the UFC and we'll come to an agreement."

Stay tuned to FightLine.com for an announcement on a date and venue for the Fedor - Rogers fight.

Fedor is just stringing us along as usual. I personally could care less if he ever fights in the UFC. His management is brutal and he does not seem to care. I hope Rogers KO's him in the first round and it opens up a long run of Fedor getting his ass handed to him.

The more he waits, the older he will get and the more experienced Brock will get.
Bad choice on his part

Can't see that happening. Fedor is going to dominate Strikeforce to the point where he will eventually sign with the UFC. Rogers is not gonna last long.

Fedor: 'Blah Blah Blah and another bunch of stuff I'll never do, blah, blah, blah'

Change the record until you actually do something of note. Id rather watch the greatest hits of Tim Sylvia on a continuous loop... Well actually no I wouldn't but you get the idea..

This is not news . Fedor said , word for word , the same thing on an interview with ron kruck 2 months ago . Followed by the same statement made to arial helwani , rawvegastv and i dont know how many more .

Although it's interesting to see who acknowledges/supports the greatest fighter of our generation vs who supports the current greatest promotion .

Maybe it will,maybe it won't.

I'm thinking more along the lines of it will happen eventually,but by the time it does happen it might not have the hype it does now.

He basically says hes going to be in the UFC and ppl still give him sh*t

The worst part about MMA are the jumpers and inpatient fans.
