Fedor Emelianenko vs Fabricio Werdum '99 percent confirmed' for April 16 on CBS

Fedor-werdum_medium
The long rumored match up between Strikeforce heavyweights Fabricio Werdum and Fedor Emelianenko looks to be inching closer to a done deal. In an interview with TATAME.com, Werdum confirmed what we've all been thinking for the last couple months.

Fabrício Werdum revealed to TATAME.com that the rumored fight against Fedor Emelianenko will probably take place in April 16th. "The fight against Fedor is 99% confirmed to April 16th. I have three months to train to the most important fight of my life."

This news isn't much of a surprise. With Alistair Overeem seemingly content to stay out of the current heavyweight picture, there really is no other opponent under the Strikeforce banner that can even make for a competitive fight with Fedor.

Now as to where the fight (presumably to serve as the main event on Strikeforce's return to CBS) is going to take place, that issue appears to still be up in the air. 

Keep it dialed in to MMAmania.com for more updates on the upcoming April 16 fight card, which is also expected to feature a middleweight title fight between Dan Henderson and Jake Shields, as they develop.
