UFC President Dana White said Thursday that he has no interest in signing former top-ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko following his 69-second loss to UFC castaway Fabricio Werdum on Saturday at “Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum”.
“I’m not interested,” White said at the UFC 116 pre-fight press conference. “Now that he loses, they want to say ‘we’ll come over’ because he lost? I’m done playing games.”
After having his 28 fight, 10 year win streak snapped with his loss to Werdum, Emelianenko (32-2) is believed to have one fight remaining on his current Strikeforce contract.
