MMA Quick Quote: Fedor Emelianenko wants to fight ‘beyond’ four-fight deal with Strikeforce

Fedor-emelianenko-2_medium

"If everything works out great and he's healthy and he's performing at the level he's accustomed to performing then I don't see why it won't be beyond those fights as well. Assuming everything works out and his health is great, and feeling fine, he could very well fight beyond the four fights and who knows where, but that's something that's very difficult to predict."

-- Fedor Emelianenko's manager, Vadim Finkelstein (via MMAweekly.com), says "The Last Emperor" plans to keep fighting in mixed martial arts as long as he is healthy and still performing at an elite level. The Russian Sambo specialist will meet Antonio Silva on Feb. 12 in a quarterfinal bout for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Tournament. This will be his first fight since suffering an enormous upset loss at the hands of Fabricio Werdum, who shocked the world back in June of last year (2010). Will Fedor be the same fighter after his first (legitimate) defeat? Having been in the game for more than 10 years, how many fights does the legendary heavyweight have left in him?
