Nick Paglino

The Last Emperor Fedor Emelianenko will return to the cage for the 1st time since his shocking loss to Fabricio Werdum, as Strikeforce MMA hits The IZOD Center in New Jersey on February 12th.

The legendary Russian bad ass’s opponent is now slouch. Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, who survived a rocky first round on December 4th in St. Louis to crush King of the Cage Light Heavyweight Champion Mike Kyle, will be the man to oppose Emelianenko.

Another huge match on the event is rumored to be a clash between former UFC Heavyweight Champions Andrei Arlovski and Josh Barnett.
