Fedor Emelianenko’s Manager Pursuing Fight Against Kevin Randleman in Russia

Vadim Finkelstein, the manager of formerly ranked number one fighter in the world, Fedor Emelianenko, has revealed that former UFC heavyweight champion, Kevin Randleman has been lined up as the Russian’s next opponent.

Speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, Vadim said:

“Fedor is healthy and full of strength, he is ready to fight. Fedor is 34 years old. This is the best peak for heavyweight fighters. Dan Henderson, for instance, fights at 41 and wins. Emelianenko can fight for five more years at a high level. For him, this is just the beginning. He has no big injuries, and because of that, it wouldn’t be right to stop now.”

“We want to make a fight in Russia. We started working towards this. If all goes well, in the autumn we will organize a show in Moscow or in St. Petersburg, where Fedor’s fight will be the main event.”

“There are many possibilities. I personally want the opponent to be one of the great fighters from Pride’s best times. It would be good if it was an interesting and competitive fighter, like for instance, Kevin Randleman. At any rate, we will chose a competitive, globally respected fighter.”
