Fedor Out 4 To 6 Months, Could Fight Overeem In Early 2010

The LA Times talks to Scott Coker who gives the news of what injuries Fedor Emelianenko suffered during his second round knockout win over Brett Rogers on Saturday:

“[The hand injury] could've been from that blow when he had Brett on the mat at the end,” Coker said. “We're hearing he could be out for four to six months.”

Alistair Overeem will headline a Strikeforce card on Showtime early next year, and he is the favorite to be Emelianenko's next foe, Coker said.
