India’s Super Fight League Has An Interest In Fedor Emelianenko

Fedor Emelianenko has at least one potential suitor for his services, as the Super Fight League out of India has made it known they are interested in acquiring “The Last Emperor,” as SFL CEO Ken Pavia told Fighters Only Magazine in a recent interview.

Fedor is definitely a fighter we would consider and would be honored to have fight in the SFL. Realists have to put him at the top of the pound-for-pound list given the longevity of his dominance. The participation of such a legend could only enhance an emerging fight promotion.

The Super Fight League has put on just one show, but has the likes of Todd Duffee, Neil Grove and Ryan Healy set to compete on the upcoming April show.

Emelianenko has won his last two fights since dropping three straight while fighting for Strikeforce. His wins, however, have come over Satoshi Ishii and Jeff Monson.

If the SFL wants to make a name for themselves on the national scene, adding Emelianenko would help them do that. Of course, finding him strong competition could be a challenge, as the biggest names are in the UFC.

    Dufee vs fedor

    • i like sexy time

      Thats exactly what I was thinking my good friend!

  • Matt Silliman

    Dufee vs. Fedor would be fun to watch, but if Fedor wants to get back on top, Dufee does nothing for him.  I guess it’s down to making more money or seeing how good you really are.  Personally, I would love to see Fedor in the UFC

      It’s not the biggest matchup for fedor,but if fedor does go with sfl he’s either gonna have to take matchups like duffee or sfl will have to sign some bigger names for him to fight

  • CSC Memorabilia

    I don’t care where Fedor ends up fighting – I will always want to see him fight!

  • Ben Rage

    I would really like to see Fedor fight at light heavy weight in the UFC. I know I’m not the first person to say this, but man, he just seems so undersized compared to the new breed of heavy weights. Let him have a warm up fight against Forrest Griffin. Then let him work his way up the ladder.
