Fedor says he’s talked to his manager about moving to light heavyweight, but Strikeforce has not offered him a fight at 205 lbs

I’ve heard somewhat valid reasons as to why Fedor Emelinanenko loss to Fabricio Werdum and Bigfoot Silva, and it’s difficult not to consider them as flaws that can easily be fixed in a rematch with either of the fighters. Granted, a true Fedor fan will justify any loss that Fedor incurs from now until California gets buried under the Pacific ocean with a megaton-sized earthquake (which is probably tomorrow, damn). In an interview with Mixfight.nl, Fedor says that he has been thinking about dropping to 205 lbs, but Strikeforce has simply not offered him a fight at light heavyweight.

MF: Do you consider dropping to light heavyweight? And possibly fight Dan Henderson for the light heavyweight title?

F: Yes i have talked about it with my manager Vadim Finklestein. But as far as i know, there is no offer made by Strikeforce to fight as a light heavyweight.

Fedor moving down to light heavyweight generally removes any hopes of avenging his two consecutive losses in Strikeforce, but it does enable him to get his revenge on that cut ‘loss’ to Tsuyoshi Kohsaka in December 22, 2000. As we all know, that’s a big fight that everyone wants to see. [Source]
