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.
