The world’s number one Pound for Pound fighter, Fedor Emilianenko, today embarked on the journey to America for his 35th professional fight, against highly regarded Brazilian Jiu Jitsu expert Fabricio Werdum. Both fighters will meet each other in the cage under the Strikeforce - M1 banner on June 26th HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
The fight marks Fedor's second fight for Strikeforce, and will leave Fedor with just one fight left on his current M1 contract. The winner of this bout is expected to meet Strikeforce HW Champion Alistair Overeem.
Upon leaving his native home of Russia, Fedor was immediately swamped with fans and press in the airport. However as he is well known for being such a fan favorite, especially amongst Russian fans, was more than happy to stop and pose for pictures, and sign autographs.
