Fedor Not Fighting Yoshida In Japan, Strikeforce Talks Ongoing

Rumors out of Japan this week pitted number one ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko taking on Hidehiko Yoshida in Yoshidas retirement at Astra 1 on April 25th but according to a rep from M-1 Global, the bout was apparently a rumor started by someone with a sense of humor. The rep also stated that talks were ongoing with Strikeforce.

“We are still tying up a couple of loose ends,” the rep told Sherdog.com and according to Strikeforce president Scott Coker, the two sides are within the five yard line on signing a deal. He also feels the deal could be signed this week.
