The greatest fighter in the world not currently fighting for the UFC may be a little bit closer to winding up with the promotion in the very near future.
It’s no secret that there have been multiple failed attempts to acquire Fedor Emelianenko on the UFC’s part in the past.
The UFC claimed that Fedor’s demands were beyond what they were willing to do, and Fedor’s management has claimed that the UFC’s contract was far too constricting.
UFC president made it no secret at last night’s post fight press conference to UFC 100 that he wants to see “The Last Emperor” in the octagon sometime very soon.
“This whole Fedor thing that has been going on, and on, and on,” explained White. “I keep saying this and that about him, and he keeps waiting.
“Eventually Fedor’s going to be here. I want Fedor. I want him to come to the UFC.”
All of that sounds fantastic, but how realistic is it that Emelianenko will truly end up inside of a UFC cage?
According to Dana, it’s not even a question. As a matter of fact, he already has the legendary heavyweight’s first opponent picked out for him.
I’ll give you a hint, he has a large tattoo on his chest and he loves his beer.
“We’ll get that deal done, and then it will be Brock vs. Fedor, and it will be a huge fight,” said White.
