Dan Henderson has also expressed an interest in this fight so maybe it will actually happen. http://fiveouncesofpain.com/2009/12/...r-emelianenko/
“To me, he’s not the reason I signed with Strikeforce just to fight him… although that is interesting and appealing to me to be able to challenge myself against him,” said Henderson in a recent interview with Sherdog. “I don’t know who else wants to fight him, but I do know the fans like to see him fight. He’s very effective and likes to finish guys and does a very good job. I think him and I would make an interesting matchup.”
But like previously mentioned, kind of a joke to have someone coming off 2 loses straight into a title shot. Fedor should have to fight and win first but then the time line would be off.
I wonder if this is a better idea than having him as a replacement for the tourney he has already been disqualified from. Kind of takes away from the credibility of the HW tournament. ... I know, I know there is no credibility to SF's match making.
But this would be a great move of Hendersons part.. leaves the UFC to get big pay days, another title in a major organization and possibly earn a win over Fedor which would be much more than he would have accomplished in the UFC in the same time frame.
