Quoteworthy:

"I have no intentions leaving M-1 Global. We have a very good partnership, so I don't see any reasons why I should break-up my current deal with that organization. My next opponent will be Fabricio Werdum. We are currently negotiating with his team, but if something goes wrong we will try to reach an agreement with Antonio Silva."

Top ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko is still planning for an upcoming bout opposite Fabricio Werdum at a planned fight card for Strikeforce in June; however, negotiations may not be going so well if "The Last Emperor" has already (hand?) picked a replacement fighter if "something goes wrong." Is this much ado about nothing? Or should "Vai Cavalo" fans have something to be concerned about?
