Fedor, Dan Henderson and Carano Likely for Strikeforce’s April Event

– After last week’s Strikeforce: Evolution event, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker confirmed that top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko (31-1) will indeed fight on the company’s next CBS show currently scheduled for April. Coker also mentioned that the company is targeting Fabricio Werdum (13-4-1) as a potential opponent:



“It’s not confirmed…on that fight card, you’ll most likely see Fedor fighting Fabricio. It’s not guaranteed, but you will see Dan Henderson fighting on that card, and Gina Carano, we’ll invite her if she’s ready.”

Coker also went on to mention that the company would invite Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem (31-11) to also fight on the CBS card and that they are considering booking Gilbert Melendez vs. Shinya Aoki and Josh Thomson vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri as future bouts under the company’s partnership with the Japanese-based DREAM promotion.
