Rolles Gracie emerging as probable opponent for Fedor Emelianenko

M-1 Global is positioning itself to sign Rolles Gracie for a June 21 fight with Fedor Emelianenko.

News of the possible pairing was essentially confirmed by Gracie on his Twitter account when he posted, “Where there is smoke there is fire. My manager is under negotiation with M1. We’re really close to make this fight against Fedor to happen.”

If signed the fight would take place in St. Petersburg, Russia. Gracie has won three straight fights since losing in his only UFC bout including a victory over Bob Sapp. Comparably, Emelianenko has won back-to-back bouts since three consecutive defeats in Strikeforce to Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Silva, and Dan Henderson respectively.

    Gracie name doesn’t mean a lot in actual competition anymore. Gives Fedor a name to fight with out a great deal of risk.

    Unfortunately there aren’t really any names for Fedor to regain some momentum from.
