Fedor Emelianenko has stated he wants a rematch with UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum.
Former Pride FC heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko made a successful return to MMA late in 2015 when he beat Jaideep Sing in Japan.
Since his return fight many questions have been asked about Fedor and the quality of his future opponents. Well the ‘Last Emperor’ answered those questions himself in a recent interview with EpicMMA.
According to Emelianenko he is very interested in a rematch with UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum.
I would like to have a rematch with Fabricio Werdum. I told the UFC that I want and would accept that fight.
I have been asked about the UFC a lot. Our doors are open and we are talking about it. Maybe it will happen in the future.
Werdum and Emelianenko met back in 2010 in the main event of Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum. The current UFC heavyweight King was victorious via submission after being rocked and dropped. Now six years on Fedor still believes he has what it takes to beat the man who ended his 28-fight win streak.
With talks said to have been ongoing between team Fedor and the UFC, details are currently not clear. One thing for certain, if Fedor signs with the UFC the MMA world is sure to implode with excitement.
