Will Fedor Drop to 205 to Fight Dan Henderson?

Reports are popping up all over that the great Fedor Emelianenko is considering dropping down to 205 to take on another legend — new Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan Henderson.

Fighters Only reports: “Sources close to the Russian say he is giving serious consideration to the prospect of fighting newly crowned Dan Henderson at 205 pounds.

The prospect of the fight was put to him by Strikeforce before the weekend’s Henderson/Feijao showdown.

Negotiations are underway and – if past experience is anything to go by – are likely to go on for some time. But the fight is of interest to all parties and is likely to happen later this year.”

Even Strikeforce president Scott Coker chimed in, saying that so far there have been only “preliminary discussions” for a Hendo vs. Fedor match. He added that it wouldn’t be in June/July when Henderson wants to fight next.

It’s possible that Fedor could have a match at 205 before facing Henderson, but it seems unlikely. If Fedor does drop to 205, and there is an agreement reached to fight Henderson, hopefully it’s not as painful and drawn out as it usually is to get a Fedor bout set.

Many fight fans — even Fedor himself — think it might be time to call it a career. But I remain intrigued by the possibility of him fighting at 205. I think it would be great for his body to cut, and we would probably see him in the shape of his life. Could he handle Henderson and his thunderous right hand? Can anyone? Regardless, it sure would be a treat to see them fight.
