M-1 Global Denies Fedor Emelianenko Cut From Strikeforce Contract

Earlier today a rumor spread through the MMA community that Russian legend Fedor Emelianenko had been cut from his Strikeforce contract. The move would have likely ended Emelianenko's career on the sport's largest stage.The Russian website LifeSports.ru reported the news this morning saying:

Business owners UFC and Strikeforce have refused to renew the contract with the world champion in MMA heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko.

M-1 Global official Evgeni Kogan immediately denied the report and they issued this strong statement to Bloody Elbow:

"It's unfortunate that the site (LifeSports.ru) has shown little to no journalistic integrity; this is also not the first time their writers have fabricated a story to create attention. Quite simply, it should be ignored. Should there ever be a change in Fedor's status, rest assured that M-1 would provide an official position."

Fedor is currently training in Holland with kickboxing legend Ernesto Hoost. He is expected back in action this summer for Strikeforce.

M1 would be stupid to get rid of Fedor. Fedor is truly the greatest fighter & martial artist in the world. And he will dominate again. Fedor is still young and his speed strength combinations & explosiveness is simply awsome. And he nearly knocked out both Wedum & Antonio Silva , Both Silva & Werdum had to take Fedor to the ground to win. But Fedor smart training with Ernesto Hoost new striking combinations and Fedor will learn a lot of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Escapes . The New Fedor will be even more dangerouse than the first and Fedor will destroy Dan Henderson. I think Fedor should also do a lot of speed strength & condioting training Plyometrics combined with explosiveness. He maybe should get Randy Couture as his strength & conditioning coach & Wrestling Coach. But he needs to spar with guys the size of Antonio Silva who also have Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Skills. No one in the Heavyweight division has the punching speed of Fedor. Maybe they should train Fedor for say 2 years and have Fedor fight Cain Velasquez I know Fedor can beat Velasquez. Fedor needs excellent Boxing Coaches maybe Mike Tyson. And Fedor must improve on his Muay Thai add lots more combinations thigh kicks front push kicks spinning back kicks side kicks combination kicking punching kneeing & elbow strikes all combined striking at various angles changing combinations constantly to confuse & destroy opponent, But this takes a hell of a lot of stamina and Fedor must also learn the clinch. I want to see Fedor dominate for the next 15 years just to shut Dana White up.
