Is it finally Fedor time in the U.S.? - Metro US

Is it finally Fedor time in the U.S.?

He’s never tapped out or been knocked out. He’s widely considered the best heavyweight MMA fighter in the world. He’s had a documentary made about him called?“Baddest Man on the Planet” — and it might not be a misnomer.

Is it finally time for Fedor Emelianenko to bust onto the mainstream sports radar in the U.S.?

The Russian fighter, who has only ever lost on a flukey TKO, meets Brett Rogers Saturday in his first fight with the Strikeforce promotion. It’s a rare high-profile bout not on pay-per-view; CBS will air it at 9 p.m. A sellout is expected at Chicago’s Sears Centre Arena.
