Fedor Fighting On New Year's Eve In Either Japan Or Russia

It looks like Fedor Emelianenko's next bout is up in the air but his manager Vadim Finkelstein spoke about when and possibly where the next bout will be and it looks like it won't be in the USA as they are saving his last fight for Strikeforce to be against Fabricio Werdum when he is healed from injury:

“We plan to organize an interim fight for Fedor. We are considering two options: Japan and Russia. We have a lucrative offer from the Japanese partners, who are interested in Fedor fighting on the New Year's Eve. This is the most interesting option for us. But we are also not excluding an option that Fedor Emelianenko will fight in Russia, sometime in December. We have to organize another fight for Fedor, as Fabricio Werdum is currently injured and no one knows when he will come back. Strikeforce have absolutely nothing against the rematch, that's exactly why we are planning the last fight on Fedor's contract to be against Werdum.”
