Dan Henderson Expecting “Wrecking Machine” Fedor at Strikeforce

Fedor Emelianenko was once thought to be all but invincible. After suffering the first loss of his career in his fifth professional fight, due to a freak cut 17 seconds into the bout, Fedor went 27 consecutive fights without losing again.

He was then submitted by Fabricio Werdum, followed by a TKO stoppage loss to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.

The calls of “past his prime” and “over the hill” started to fly into the face of the 34-year-old Russian.

Dan Henderson isn’t buying it.

“I’ve gone through two or three times with a couple losses in a row,” he told MMAWeekly.com, knowing all too well that fans can be fickle at times.

Heading into Saturday’s Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Henderson main event, the former two-division Pride champion won’t be lulled into a false sense of security. He knows that the former heavyweight kingpin still packs power in his punches and has a few tricks up his sleeve.

Henderson is ready for the same Fedor that was a wrecking machine in Pride, and expects the best we’ve seen from the ‘Last Emperor’ when they meet.

Here what Hendo had to say in this exclusive one-on-one interview with MMAWeekly.com‘s Damon Martin.
