“Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum” is officially underway inside the HP Pavilion in San Jose, CAlifornia.
In his Strikeforce debut this last November, the former PrideFC champion posted a vicious 2ndRound knockout of then-undefeated Brett Rogers. The victory pushed Emelianenko’s record to an unprecedented 31-1.
Werdum, who was released by the UFC last year after posting a mundane 2-2 Octagon record, boasts a respectable 13-4-1 overall mark and is perfect in his two scraps for Strikeforce. He was last seen taking a hard-fought unanimous decision over Antonio “Big Foot” Silva at the same “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers” show.
