Fedor Emelianenko vs Fabricio Werdum possible for April Strikeforce CBS event

Fedor-werdum_medium
WAMMA heavyweight champion and Strikeforce marquee attraction Fedor Emelianenko (31-1) will likely return to the CBS airwaves in April 2010 when he welcomes a challenge from Fabricio Werdum (13-4-1) in a bout tentatively scheduled for the next installment of "Saturday Night Fights."

While nothing is official at this time, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker confirmed his intentions of bringing the two heavyweights together during his post-fight remarks following the "Evolution" event on Dec. 19.

"The Last Emperor" made his promotion debut in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, taking a very game Brett Rogers into the second round before finishing him with a "Grim" overhand right that sent the former tire mechanic into the shop for repairs.

Emelianenko suffered a hand injury during the CBS televised fight and was sidelined for several weeks; however, the former PRIDE FC heavyweight champion will likely be available for an April return.

And as "Vai Cavalo" will tell you, good things come to those who wait.

Werdum was already calling out the Russian Sambo champion after his Nov. 7 decision win over Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, also on CBS.

The Brazilian submission specialist has notched two wins under the Strikeforce banner since debuting for the San Jose-based promotion at "Carano vs Cyborg" back in August. While Werdum's ultimate goal is to hold the division title, current "champion" Alistair Overeem has still not confirmed a timetable for his return.

Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more information on the upcoming Strikeforce CBS event as they develop.
