At an M-1 Selection conference, M-1 President Vadim Finklestein announced that Fedor Emelianenko’s fight with Fabricio Werdrum will take place in May, rather than the originally anticipated April date.
The fight was previously expected to air on CBS, but a middleweight title fight between Dan Henderson and Jake Shields will headline that show instead.
It was rumored that Fedor would Alistair Overeem at the upcoming Dream card, but those rumors were quickly shot down by both Strikeforce/M-1 and Dream.
Overeem is tentavely expected to defend his Strikeforce Heavyweight Championship against the winner of the Werdum/Fedor fight later in the year.
No exact date or location has been set for the bout between Fedor and Werdum as of this writing.
