Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker has labelled the heavyweight clash between Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson as one of the best fights the promotion has put on over the years.
“If you look at that fight, I think it stands right up there. If you look back at the history of Strikeforce, which is relatively a newer company, I think the ones that stand out in my mind are, in our early days, Frank Shamrock fighting Cung Le – that was an unbelievable matchup. And Nick Diaz fighting Paul Daley this year – unbelievable fight. And tonight, I think this one probably tops those two. So arguably one of the best fights in the history of our company.”
“It definitely lived up to the billing, so my hat’s off to Fedor and Hendo and my question is, is there anything Dan Henderson can’t do? I want to know, because this guy is unbelievable. It looked like when (Henderson) hit him with that uppercut, it flattened Fedor out. I felt that his legs did go, and he was hurt – he was injured. So therefore, I think the referee did the correct thing. He watched carefully to see what the response was, and at that time Dan was doing what Dan does. Thirty seconds earlier, it was Fedor doing that to Dan. But I think it was the correct stoppage.”
