Quoteworthy:

"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."

M-1 Global boss Vadim Finkelstein sheds some light on "The Last Emperor's" return to the cage. With the Strikeforce heavyweight division currently in limbo, it seems as though Fedor will be partaking in a fight on New Year's Eve in either Japan or Russia. It also appears that Emelianenko and M-1 are hoping to get a rematch against Fabricio Werdum in the Russian heavyweight's last fight under his current Strikeforce contract. Anyone oppose that notion?
