After his two consecutive loss, Fedor Emelianenko is planning to move down a weight class.

After rumors began spreading that Fedor Emelianenko considers dropping to 205lbs to face light heavyweight king, Dan Henderson, M-1 representatives were fast to deny it. However, The Last Emperor admitted that he is considering to move to light heavyweight.

During his interview with the Dutch website MixFight.NL, Fedor Emelianenko stated that Strikeforce did not offer him a light heavyweight bout. But that didn’t stop him from discussing the idea with his management.

In addition to this, The Last Emperor also admitted that he would like to have a rematch against Antonio Silva and Fabricio Werdum if given the chance.

Will his move to light heavyweight do Fedor Emelianenko any justice?
