Fedor Emelianenko, Strikeforce, and M-1 Global may be headed to pay-per-view.

With Fedor's next fight in the United States just two weeks away, everyone is already curious about when he might fight again or what the status is between Strikeforce and M-1 Global. For now there's at least one more fight planned, and it's likely to end up on pay-per-view.

That's the word from M-1 Global Director of Operations Evgeni Kogan, who spoke with MMAWeekly on Tuesday about the company's plans for Fedor and Strikeforce.

"Following this fight now we have one more fight on the cards," Kogan said. "That's the future for now, there's one more fight following the June 26 fight and that fight is more likely than not on pay-per-view."

Of course M-1 Global promotes several fighters, but one thing is guaranteed when and if that pay-per-view happens. Fedor Emelianenko will be leading the charge.

"That is a fight for Fedor that is co-promotion by M-1 Global and Strikeforce," Kogan stated.

Fedor's primary focus right now is on Fabricio Werdum and their fight on June 26, but a title shot against Alistair Overeem could be just the pay-per-view draw that Strikeforce and M-1 Global could be looking for. The only question right now is timing, and Kogan says he can't guarantee anything like that right now.

"It depends on what happens during this fight. It depends on health issues, and whatever else following this fight. It depends also by other factors, so I don't want to tell you something and not have it happen," said Kogan. "It's possible, it's not unlikely, but I wouldn't say I'd guarantee that it happens in 2010."

I would say that might not be a bad idea but it still seems Showtime is involved so it will dreadful.

If Strikeforce goes to PPV I will stop watching strikeforce. The only reason I watch it is because it's free MMA. But I refuse to pay to watch a lower tier organization.

Between 1-2 UFCs a month and WEC moving to PPV, I just don't see me getting a strikeforce PPV. Unless it was 30 dollars or less.

Too many pay per views each month. What are we all millionaires
Ufc comes first. Watch dana will put up a fight night or something the same
Night as strikeforce's pay per view

I'll go to Buffalo Wild Wings and watch it and dvr any counter programming the UFC goes with. I love the UFC but there is no way I'm going to miss watching the best fighter in the world.

Lucky I live in the butthole of the world and i am FORCED to just download full UFC, StrikeForce and WEC events.
But to be honest, even if i lived in damn Vegas, i still wouldnt buy ppv.
Especially with the way MMA is, take the A.Silva vs Maia fight.... If i payed for that I'd cry.
So thanks torrent sites and streaming sites :)

You totally got the World Cup. That's beyond a win. I wish I could see the World Cup. By the way, how do UFC events work in South Africa. I know in England and such it's shown on ESPN. How do they work in South Africa?
