The long wait is over. Fedor Emelianenko is back in the Strikeforce fold as the promotion has finally, officially announced his return. As expected, Emelianenko will face Fabricio Werdum on June 26.
Strikeforce president Scott Coker has been quoted as saying, that this would be one of the most exciting duels ever in, Mixed Martial Arts and he would not be surprised if Werdum were to win and stop Emelianenko’s ten year winning streak.
The June 26 is a Strikeforce and M-1 co-promoted show will take place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., and air on Showtime. The press release heralding Emelianenko's return gave no indication as to what terms of his deal, if any, had been amended.
