If Strikeforce has been talking about putting together Dan Henderson vs. Fedor Emelianenko, it's been a one-sided conversation, according to a representative for the Russian fighter.

M-1 Global Director of Operations Evgeni Kogan today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the topic hasn't even been broached to Emelianenko or M-1 Global.

"There have been no discussions with us," he said. "Any discussions have been solely on the other side of the Atlantic."

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker on Tuesday said there have been "preliminary discussions only" on the potential superfight and said the bout would not take place at an event planned for June 18 that will host the remaining quarterfinal bouts of the Strikeforce heavyweight grand prix. He did not say where, when, or with whom the discussions took place.
