Fedor Emelianenko could be on his way to the Ultimate Fighting Championship

It looks like the “The Last Emperor” Fedor Emelianenko could be on his way to the Ultimate Fighting Championship, after his management renewed the negotiations with Dana White’s promotion. Fedor Emelianenko’s next and last opponent on his Strikeforce contract remains unknown, which is thought to be one of the reason for the talks with the UFC.

Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem was also involved in an internet rumor, linking him with a move to the UFC after his Strikeforce contract expires, but was quickly turned down by Overeem himself. Overeem recently declined Fedor Emelianenko’s official challenge due to his K-1 WGP obligations, before stating that he is willing to fight Fedor after his K-1 title run.

Fedor Emelianenko’s last fight was on June 26th against Fabricio Werdum, who managed to defeat the icon via a Armbar/Triangle Choke combination. Since the loss, the 32-2 Emelianenko have been tied to fights vs. Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Sergei Kharitonov, Alistair Overeem, Dan Henderson and even King Mo.
