After making his presence known in The Salamander Key, Fedor is making a comeback inside the Strikeforce cage this July.

After his loss to Antonio Silva last February, Fedor Emelianenko’s future was uncertain. He even hinted about his retirement, following his defeat in the highly publicized Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix. But a short return to his homeland eased up the retirement talk, declaring his intentions to fight again.

And it seems that Fedor Emelianenko got a target date for his return to Zuffa’s new acquisition — Strikeforce.

“Fedor’s gonna fight sometime in July. It’s probably toward the end of July or mid-July, but we have fights with Fedor that we’re gonna honor and continue forward. We’re gonna do the co-branding exercise that we do with M-1 every time we do fights with them.”

And whether the Russian Emperor will be on a fight-by-fight basis, that will depend on his next appearance. Are you excited to see Fedor Emelianenko inside the cage once again?

After his exit from UFC, Brandon Vera is back in the promotion! But he's not coming for UFC 128 -- at least not yet.

A few months ago, UFC released Brandon Vera after his loss to Thiago Silva at UFC 125. But its seems that his exit was short-lived, as he will have his UFC return for at least another fight.

However, it is not yet clear whether Brandon Vera’s return will be contractual or simply another chance given by UFC. In addition to this, he has not been offered a fight slot as of the moment. One bout that Brandon Vera will not be part of, at least, is filling in for Karlos Vemola. Karlos Vemola was forced to back out from his UFC 128 fight due to injury.

Brandon Vera’s return has no definite date as of this time. But in case he gets a new match, Fighting Insider will keep you posted.
