Coming off his upset victory over Fedor at the last Strikeforce event, Fabricio Werdum could be out until next year. After he holds some seminars in the near-future he's going under the knife. " After the seminars I will undergo a surgery on my elbow that I have put off for some time. We’re in July and I only want to come back 100-percent recovered. I think it’s hard to make it back this year due the physical therapy, conditioning and all else. Then I might just get back next year."

When he spoke about this in PVT the other day i was surprised the boards didn't light up about it. It sucks, but you cant expect the man to fight only the best in the world with a serious injury. Maybe the SF HW division will never clarify

EDIT:I was thinking could SF pushed Werdum in to this so fedor can fight for the title?

well it works out for strikeforce if this is true because obviously fedor would be next in line for the title shot assuming he didn't lose another fight after the werdum fight....so w/werdum out then fedor gets the shot logically. then werdum's return can be really hyped as the rematch again, assuming fedor beats overeem.

uh oh what is fedor going to do, he is going to wait untill werdum returns because he prolly wont fight anyone else or at least doesnt want to fight anyone else and if he does fight anyone else other than werdum he wont resign with SF.

if he beats Overeem he has to resign with SF because of the champions clause

They are coming up with a champion clause now, I doubt it will put Fedor in a position he won't approve of, imo Fedor can still bargain with SF. m-1 will be mad because they don't want anyone but Werdum, the compromise may be Fedor waiting until 2011 to fight Werdum first not Overeem I think.

If he does wait to fight Werdum and that is the only guy he will fight i will loose what little respect I have for this guy (It might be more M-1 fault then any thing else)

I guess we'll end up with Silva fighting Overeem for the belt.
