Fabricio Werdum recently spoke with, and stated that a bout with former Elite XC Heavyweight Champion Antonio Silva was agreed on for the Strikeforce: Emelianenko vs. Rogers event. Here is what he had to say…

“My manager called me asking if I agree to fight him, and I said yes and that I was ready, but I think this fight won’t happen anymore. He’ll probably fight for Sengoku’s title. Strikeforce made a partnership with Dream, so my manager said I can also fight in Japan, at Dream”.

“I spoke with them and they said everything it’s ok. I’m in Brazil and I don’t know more about it, but I think it’s gonna happen” .
