Rankings: Fedor in P4P, Hendo #6 Light HeavyweightPosted on July 30, 2011, 09:03 AM by Anton Gurevich
Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson will meet tonight in the main event of the stacked Strikeforce card in Chicago. The encounter between Fedor and Henderson will be one of the most high profile bouts in Strikeforce history, at least according to LowKick.com Community Rankings.
"The Last Emperor" currently enjoys the support of his loyal fans, occupying the 9th position in Pound for Pound rankings. Fedor is only a few points above Alistair Overeem, who was recently cut from Strikeforce and now may never face the Russian legend. The most interesting thing is that Fedor currently ranked lower at Heavyweight, on 10th, below Josh Barnett, Shane Carwin, Frank Mir and the rest of usual Top 10 Heavyweight residents.
As for Henderson, "All-American" is currently occupying #6 spot in Light Heavyweight rankings, way below Lyoto Machida (on points) and highly above Phil Davis, Forrest Griffin, Gegard Mousasi and Ryan Bader. If victorious against Fedor, Henderson is expected to take the P4P rankings by storm, mostly due to fact that he's moving up one/two weight classes to face "The Last Emperor".
