Fedor Emelianenko could fight in January

Consider this an early Christmas present, of sorts. MMA Weekly is reporting that Fedor Emelianenko could face Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva on a January 29 Strikeforce card. It would be Fedor’s first fight since losing to Fabricio Werdum in June while Silva just beat Mike Kyle a couple of weeks ago.

While I’m not surprised, I can’t say that I’m very happy about the match-up. Fedor only has one fight remaining on his Strikeforce contract and while Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker is confidant he’ll be re-signed, I’d hate to see them waste his last bout on what appears to be a freakshow not unlike the New Year’s classics Fedor used to fight in Japan. Silva is just a slightly smaller Hong-Man Choi.
