Fedor Emelianenko: No concrete plans for Fedor to face Bobby LashleyPosted on January 25, 2012, 09:48 PM by Trent Reinsmith
Earlier this week Bobby Lashley spoke to Fighters Only in regard to his future in the fight game. During his interview Lashley mentioned several possibilities for his next fight, including signing with Bellator, fighting Dave Bautista and most intriguing of all, a bout with Fedor Emelianenko.
Evgeni Kogan, director of operations for M-1 Global has refuted those reports, “There are currently no concrete conversations about Bobby being the next opponent for Fedor.” – for more see USAToday.com.
Kogan did offer up the fact that Emelianenko would probably fight two or three times this year with two possible destinations being Monaco and Russia.
Emelianenko suffered three straight losses between June 2010 and July 2011, but has since gotten back in the win column with wins in his last two fights.
What do you think LowKick’ers, if Emelianenko does not face Lashley, who should his next opponent be?
