Rumor of the Day: Is Fedor vs. Todd Duffee In the Works for Summer M-1 Show in Monaco?


According to a post on Fedors official website, The Last Emperor has been taking some time off to nurse a thigh injury and likely wont fight until the summer against a former UFC legend. Sure its a stretch to say that Duffee is a UFC legend, but remember that these are those Crazy Russians talking and what else are they going to advertise him as, the ripped dude that got knocked out by that flabby Mike Russow guy?

What propagated the rumor, and it might be merely a coincidence, was that both Emelianenko and Duffee announced in the past 24-hours that they have big news to announce soon, presumably regarding their next respective fights. Considering that the once dominant Russian has been scraping the barrel of opponents since being dropped by Strikeforce following back-to-back losses to Fabricio Werdum and Antonio Bigfoot Silva, it wouldnt be a stretch to assume hes fighting The Duffman next. Wins over an aging fighter like Jeff Monson and a future middleweight like Satoshi Ishii hardly convinced anyone that the old PRIDE-era Fedor is back. Not that a win over Duffee would silence his critics, but at least it would be a win over a fighter under 40 who is an actual heavyweight.

According to Duffees Wikipedia page, the fight is set for May, however M-1 mentioned last month that Fedor would likely fight next at a planned Monaco event in the summer, so take the news with a grain of salt.

It is bullshit from the very beginning.


According to a post on Fedor’s official website

Fedor's official website is . (http://www.efedor.ru) and it says absolutely nothing about a potential match against Duffee. Actually the site never has any updates, and the last new that appears in the main page is that fedor will be fighting Satoshi Ishii at NYE lol

I think this rumour is completely false.
Also, few weeks ago Fedor won the Russian Sambo championships and he said that right now he does not want to even think about MMA.

You mean Fedor "won" the Russian Sambo Championships right?

I wonder whose website this would be then?

Ожидается, что свой следующий бой Федор проведет против одной из бывших легенд UFC. It is expected that his next fight against Fedor will hold one of the legends of former UFC.

Fedor's facebook sent out a forward today or yesterday that said "Huge news coming soon".

Fedor "won" that championship just like Charlie Sheen thought he was "winning" by getting fired from 2 and a half men haha. That being said, Sambo is fucking awesome and I would love to train in it but no gyms nearby in Atlanta offer it as far as I know.

Fedor legitely won the championship. Even if he and Aleks fought for real, Fedor would have still be the winner. The Aleks of today is not even a Top 25 HW

I believe it, it's just that I had never seen anyone take a dive like that so blatantly before

aleks taking a dive for fedor was a weird one but fedor did make it to the finals so i guess he won some real fights so its not like he walked in and they handed him a trophy
