Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Fedor-Henderson is Officially Official for 30 July

VidProps: TheAzyunyh2

Now that contracts have been signed and announcements have been made, we can officially start looking forward to seeing Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson go at it later this summer.  Sure, there’s no title on the line, and sure, there’s not much of anything on the line other than bragging rights, but according to a memo sent out to all MMA media and bloggers back in 2003, we are required to be excited anytime Fedor is set to fight, even if there are exactly zero fights announced for the rest of the card.

The promo trailer is a tried and true tool used to raise excitement for future matches, and it’s one tool that amateurs — by which we mean unpaid fans — usually outshine the pros.  This is because, just like Mom’s cooking and anything that is still produced by hand, it’s made with love.  Watch this video of Fedor and Henderson during their respective ups and downs over the past decade, and tell us you can’t feel the love.  It’s that fuzzy feeling you get when the music syncs up just right and you feel tempted to jump up and fist pump.

Whatever you do, don’t jump out of your seat and fist pump at work! Everyone in the cubicle farm will see you, and you’re supposed to be working extra hard to make up for slacking off since last Wednesday.  Just watch quietly and feel the love.  Sure, it may feel like you’re just watching Fedor knock Brett Rogers‘ face sideways, but believe us:  it’s love.

@ Fried Taco - That actually doesn't sound too horrible. I'm broke as hell right now but I'd scrape $52 together just to see this fight and a few filler fights.

I hope this is at a catchweight (or 205, I guess, if Mike Dolce can learn some Russian). I want to see Fedor at about 215-220 and Dan at like 205-210-ish. With Hendo at 200 and Fedor at 230, the size difference nudges this into a less credible matchup than it should be. A 10-15 pound difference seems okay but pushing 30 is contentious enough to draw attention away from the fight - which would be a shame with a match up of this magnitude. This will probably be my most anticipated fight this year and I want it to be as unsullied by potential unfairness as possible. I don't care who wins, I just HAVE to see this fight.

Just got an email from both Strikeforce and UFC, tickets go on sale this week! And boy, are they expensive! (not UFC expensive, but still...) $352 for cage side, down to $37 for the least desirable seats. Sears Centre is a good venue, not really a bad seat there. But I'll probably go for the $52 tickets (second cheapest).

I'm thinking of wearing a Pride shirt, and then be loudly disappointed there is a cage instead of a ring, all while talking on my Motorola RAZR phone. Then I'll jump in my DeLorean and zip back to the present-day!

Coker said it was a catch weight at 220, but Hendo denied that, implying it was just a heavyweight bout.

Who cares what either of them weigh when they step in the cage!!!
O Chan- May 31, 2011 at 7:38 am
Didn't they say it was at a catch weight of 220?

@morningwood, damn, thats what I was thinking too. Hendo will give a good fight but theres no way anyone of the same size, or even smaller will dominate Fedor. The only chance for Hendo is the H-bomb and I doubt that Fedor will fall for one.
Morningwood- May 31, 2011 at 7:18 am
so is Fedor dropping to 205, or is it at HWY?
