Fedor Emelianenko To Fight Rolles Gracie In M-1 Event? Rolles Tweets Negotiation Status

In a surprisingly swift turn of events, Rolles Gracie pours gasoline on the flames of rumor linking him to a fight with The Last Emperor, Fedor Emelianenko in a future M-1 event.

Fedor has a record of 33-4 and is coming off two straight wins against Satoshi Ishii (4-2) and Jeff Monson (44-13). The last fight against Ishii took place at DREAM - Fight for Japan: Genki Desu Ka! New Year! 2011 on December 31, 2011. Fedor looked very mobile against Monson and dispatched Ishii inside three minutes.

Rolles Gracie has an MMA record of 6-1 and was most recently seen fighting Bob Sapp at One FC 2: Battle of Heroes. His considerable grappling acumen derives not only from the Gracie legacy, but from his own large frame and fairly good competition record. Rolles fought Joey Beltran at UFC 109, but appeared to suffer mightily from octagon jitters and perhaps not the greatest training camp ever. After that bout, he bounced back with two wins in two 2011 fights and trained over in Singapore at Evolve MMA for a short time before taking the Bob Sapp fight.

Where there is smoke there is fire. My manager is under negotiation with M1. We're really close to make this fight against Fedor to happen.
