Fedor Signing With Strikeforce Is A Blessing In Disguise

Now that Fedor Emelianenko has signed with Strikforce what happens to arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world? He will more than likely defeat the likes of Fabricio Werdum, Brett Rogers and Alistair Overeem. He will make lots of money and we will continue to argue with other fans over Fedor's greatness. Already Dana White is savagely assaulting the fighters that Fedor will fight, calling them "nobodys". This is not true. Werdum is a UFC vet and Rogers and Overeem could compete with the best of them in the UFC.

The fact of the matter is that Couture and Nogueira are over-the-hill and Lesnar, Carwin and Velasquez are too green. Hopefully Fedor will sign with the UFC in a year or two when Lesnar, Carwin and Velasquez have more experience. This is unlikely though, I don't believe Fedor will ever fight in the UFC.
