While Strikeforce has yet to officially announce the super-fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson, it hasn’t stopped the Gambling Gods from dropping their two cents on the hotly rumored showdown.
Since rattling off 27 consecutive victories, Emelianenko has dropped two straight scraps and hinted at retirement after getting mauled by Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva in February. The heavyweight division’s G.O.A.T. owns a 31-3 (1 NC) career mark.
Henderson holds a 27-8 record and was last seen taking the 205-pound title from Rafael “Feijão” Cavalcante in March. The mixed martial arts icon turns 41 this August.
The powers that be peg Emelianenko a 3-to-1 favorite to snap his two-fight losing streak.
The MMA legends are expected to square off July 30th in Chicago, Illinois.
