“As far as I know, my manager Vadim Finkelstein is in talks with Fabricio Werdum. The bout against him is on the cards. The fight will likely take place by the summer of next year.” Emelianenko stated.
"The Last Emperor" lost to Werdum via Triangle Choke in their first bout which marked as his first loss in ten years. Fedor dropped two more bouts to Antonio Silva and Dan Henderson afterwords, but got back to his winning ways as he defeated Jeff Monson. Now Emelianenko prepares for a fight in Japan.
“I’ll have my next match in Japan on December 31." He said "There’s no certainty about my future opponent yet, the bout is under discussion now, but I’ve already started my preparations. In Japan, they want to put a local fighter against me. It’s going to be the main event of the night.”
Many fans of Fedor Emelianenko andof the sport have questioned the 35-year-old's decision to continue fighting and for Emelianenko it is simple. He feels that he has to take time to devote his time to sports and he wants to continue to compete for years to come.
“Regardless of what happens to my life, I think I’d still have to devote some time to sports,” He said. “I think it’s necessary to path the knowledge that I possess to young people. To some extent, of course, I’ll be engaged in coaching. God willing, I’d like to compete for several more years.”
