Fedor Emelianenko Headlines October 10 Strikeforce Event; UFC Could Go Head-to-Head

Fedor EmelianenkoFedor Emelianenko’s Strikeforce debut will headline an October 10 Strikeforce event at a location to-be-announced, according to MMA Fanhouse.

An opponent has not yet been confirmed for the top-ranked heavyweight, though rumors have been making the rounds in recent days that Emelianenko could fight Ricco Rodriguez in the main event.

Matt Lindland has signed a three-fight deal with Strikeforce and will also make his promotional debut at the Showtime-televised event, with fellow-middleweights Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza and Jake Shields also expected to be in action on the card.

UFC President Dana White said last week that the UFC is considering adding a second October event to its schedule, joining UFC 104 on October 24 in Los Angeles, potentially setting up a head-to-head showdown between the UFC and Strikeforce on October 10.
