When Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson collide on Showtime this weekend for the Zuffa-owned StrikeForce promotion, one person watching the catchweight clash of the legends will be doing so under the impression “The Last Emporer” is in a lose-lose situation.
That person is UFC President Dana White.
In a wide-ranging interview posted on SPORTS ILLUSTRATED’S WEB SITE, White stated “I’m not out to hurt Fedor or hurt any fighter … People ask me my opinion, I give you my opinion on what I think about a fighter. I’m in the fight business and I think that I know a little bit about the fight business. I’ve been in it since I was 19 … I thought the Fedor hype was ridiculous … If I’ve got to still give Fedor his digs, my dig would be, ‘Dude, you’re fighting a 185-pounder.’ Henderson’s got a great chin, he’s durable, he’s got good wrestling, he can stay out of submissions, and all the great things I can say about Henderson, but Henderson weighs 185 pounds … So I actually think this fight, as far as Fedor is concerned, it’s a lose-lose for him. If he knocks out Dan Henderson, he knocks out a 185-pounder. If he gets knocked out, he just got knocked out by a 185-pounder.”
“Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson” takes place this Saturday inside the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, with the live cablecast on Showtime starting at 10:00 PM Eastern Time / 9:00 PM local in Chicago.
