A heavyweight fight between Fedor Emelianenko and Brock Lesnar is the bout most mixed martial arts fans want to see, but contractual obligations and medical problems are likely to prevent a showdown between the two for another year, Emelianenko’s camp said. Emelianenko is dealing with health issues. He suffered a fracture and tendon damage in his left thumb, and a fractured nose in the Rogers fight, Strikeforce chief executive Scott Coker said. Emelianenko stopped in Los Angeles on Monday to be treated for the injuries. “[The hand injury] could’ve been from that blow when he had Brett on the mat at the end,” Coker said. “We’re hearing he could be out for four to six months.” Los Angeles Times

Supposedly the two toughest guys in MMA are either hurt, sick, or contractually obligated to be pussys. -TO
