Fedor vs. Henderson Possible for July 30 Strikeforce Event on Showtime

A non-title superfight between Fedor Emelianenko and light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson originally rumored for Strikeforce’s pay-per-view debut is now expected to headline a July 30 Strikeforce event on Showtime, according to MMAjunkie.

The event is still being planned, but could take place at Chicago’s Sears Center, which previously hosted “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers” in Nov. 2009.

UFC President Dana White recently said UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta was working with Strikeforce’s Scott Coker to finalize the Emelianenko-Henderson matchup.

The event is also rumored to include Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal vs. Roger Gracie and Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante vs. Ovince St. Preux.
