That's the word according to Scott Coker via MMAWeekly:

"It’s not confirmed... (but) on that fight card, you’ll most likely see Fedor fighting Fabricio (Werdum)," he revealed.

Of course the fight that everyone wants to see is Emelienenko vs. Alistair Overeem.  However, Overeem's management let it be known that he won't be fighting for Strikeforce until late 2010(if at all).  Werdum is coming off a decision win over Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva, but is thought to have a miniscule chance of beating Emelianenko by most fans.  Werdum has improved his striking to go along with his very dangerous ground game, but his chin will quite possibly be his downfall.  What say you?
