Fedor vs. Rulon Gardner At PRIDE 33 In Las Vegas?

Sankei Sports published a rumor earlier today at this link, claiming Dreamstage Entertainment is attempting to book heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko versus U.S. olympic gold medalist Rulon Gardner for the main event of the upcoming PRIDE 33 “The Second Coming” show on February 24th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Take that for what it's worth. The only confirmed fight at this point is for the middleweight title, and will feature champion Vanderlei Silva defending his belt against welterweight champion Dan Henderson, who's belt is not on the line.
