It remains unlikely as ever that heavyweight legend Fedor Emelianenko will ever see action inside the Octagon, especially in light of the Russian’s recent retirement from MMA. However, while such news brings frowns to the faces of many fans, it also appears not being able to work out the particulars with Emelianenko is one of UFC President Dana White ’s rare regrets. White went after Emelianenko in 2009 before “The Last Emperor” eventually signed with Strikeforce , nearly putting together a deal seeing the PRIDE icon face former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar under the UFC banner.

While “The Dragon” may finally have an adversary to focus on, the extended break was apparently so bothersome he even considered taking a fight at middleweight to speed the process up

When Hatsu Hioki made his UFC debut in October he entered the Octagon as one of the few fighters viewed as posing a potential challenge to featherweight champion Jose Aldo . However, after barely outpointing George Roop in a bout many felt could have gone the other way the 25-4 Hioki exited the eight-sided cage with a number of questions surrounding how deserving he was of the pre-fight hype.
