M-1 Global Founder and President, Vadim Finkelchtein Talks Fedor vs. Henderson

M-1 Global: Vadim, rumours are buzzing on the internet surrounding Fedor’s next fight being on July 30 against Dan Henderson. Can you comment on this?

Vadim Finkelchtein: Indeed, we have been talking about this fight for some time; there’s nothing new to talk about here. From our side, we have no objections to the bout against Henderson. This fight is not yet officially confirmed as we have yet to receive confirmation from Dan Henderson and his camp. Dan is a very good fighter; he has good striking, sound wrestling techniques and great experience. I think this will be an interesting fight for all MMA fans. We’re ready to sign the contract.

M-1 Global: If and when the contract is signed, is Fedor is ready for this fight?

Vadim Finkelchtein: Of course! Fedor is actively preparing. He went to camp in Holland in April and will be headed back at the end of this month.

M-1 Global: When do you plan to announce the fight officially?

Vadim Finkelchtein: As to when the fight is officially announced, I’m not sure but we have given our commitment to make the fight a reality. Now it’s up to Henderson’s management and camp. Once we receive their confirmation, we’ll be ready to announce the fight immediately.

M-1 Global: And as the date; will it be July 30?

Vadim Finkelchtein: My understanding is that July 30 fits Strikeforce’s schedule of events and this date works for us as well.
