M-1’s Finkelchtein: Emelianenko’s Strikeforce future likely determined today

CHATSWORTH, Calif. – M-1 Global president Vadim Finkelchtein says he’ll know today if Fedor Emelianenko’s obligation to Strikeforce ends with his next fight.

The executive said his company “primarily” is negotiating with Strikeforce’s broadcast partner, Showtime Networks, on a new deal that will keep the Russian heavyweight in the Strikeforce cage beyond the single fight remaining on his current contract.

That deal includes a new co-promotional agreement that could bring M-1 events to the premium-cable channel.
