Fedor will fight Overeem in the future, if the drug tests return clean

Despite the yesterday’s announcement that undisputed P4P King and WAMMA Heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko will face Fabricio Werdum in May, “The Last Emperor”‘s management company have confirmed he take a fight with Alistair Overeem in the future, provided Overeem takes a standard drug test leading up to the fight.

Steroid claims obviously being a sore spot amongst Overeem’s camp, but it is fair to say their response was a little surprising. Alistair Overeem’s Golden Glory Gym coach Martjin de Jong agreed that Fedor Emelianenko deserves a title shot and that he is looking for that match-up. “The Demolition Man’s” career has been somewhat bizarre since winning the strikeforce heavyweight belt in 2007, given he has yet to defend it, or return to America, leading people to throw all sorts of steroid accusations around, given Overeem has effectively gone from 205 to 265 so suddenly.

Meanwhile, Dutch sources claim that Alistair Overeem vs Brett Rogers fight is currently in works for the Strikeforce on CBS event in April. Jake Shields vs Dan Henderson has been already confirmed as the headliner for the event, as Mousasi vs King Mo bout is expected to be announced very soon. Scott Coker’s promotion will test themselves against the stacked UFC Abu Dhabi card, that will take place seven days before the Strikeforce event on CBS, on April 10th.

    Thanks Danc454! Hope it’s soon after he dismantles Werdum rather than later. Lucky to get 1 or 2 Fedor fights a year these days. You’d think he’d want to fight more coming to the end of his career.
    I don’t really care about the Werdum fight although Werdum’s beat some respectable opponents, he doesn’t present much of a challenge but the Overeem fight interests me. I’d expect Fedor to win but Al, roids or no roids, is no joke. Once you hurt him with a good shot though he tends to crumble. Hope I’m not first, wouldn’t want to take small pleasures from those that need.

    This will be good. Odds are he will test possitive for roids, then we will never get to see Fedor beat his ass.

    Alistard is shouldnt be fighting Rogers anyways, his coaches are full of crap, they also want that fight first so he can come down off Roids and get healthy again, when people stop roids they go through a withdraw basically and crash losing all strentgh before recovering, screw Alistard, why is he even over there in the first place?

    A Alistair Overeem vs Brett Rogers fight added to that card would be awesome & matches UFC’s Abu Dhabi card.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am very excited about this Rogers vs Overeem matchup. Before they jump to a Fedor vs Overeem fight, Allistair is going to have to go through the beast. My bets are on that he doesn’t make it out of the fight. Rogers will chew his ass up. It will be an interesting fight to say the least and the Mousasi Vs KIng Mo will be exciting to watch as well. Hendo vs Shields? Not so much since we all know the outcome already. Goodnight Shields.

    So, Overeem (the SF HW Champ) will fight Rogers for, I would assume, the SF HW Championship? How does a man lose his last fight and get a title shot when the man he lost to is not getting the same shot?

    Is this not a title defense for Overeem? Would a win by Rogers not make him the HW champ? Or is this a split interim title and the winner of Overeem/Rogers will face the winner of Fedor/Werdum?

    Does SF have the same title defense rules as UFC (must defend in a calendar otherwise it’s vacant)?

    Strike Force needs to get it’s collective heads out of its collective asses. Overeem vs Rogers? Didnt Fedor beat Rogers? Dont you think it’s time that they let new HW’s fight for that belt? And what’s with the Title holders fighting non-title fights? Did we really need to see Mousassi fight Sokoudjou? I really cant wait for Canseco vs Walker too. And Lashley really deserves a title shot after beating up Pudge Simms. I thought this organization was on the up and up.

    Every fighter in North America should boycott Overeem…the guy has been hiding oversea’s beating up on nobodys and doing steroids ( most likely ) fawk him, he does not deserve to fight here again….has not defended the title in 2 years….what a fawking joke..

    Then you give him Brett Rogers?

    how does that make any fawking sense?

    Beating up? His most recent fights prove otherwise. He has been getting beat up overseas by small name fighters. He got knocked out not to long ago. Embarrassing loss especially considering how juiced up he looks in the video. I think this fight happened on New Years this year. You can not seriously think he will last in a fight in against Rogers or especially MR. EMELIANENKO. I think people get a misconception because they see this guy as a man with potential since he moves fast and throws wild knees and has decent striking. What he lacks is the chin. That in itself makes everything else worthless. Its like a tank made of paper. What good is it? Watch the youtube. Reconsider?

    No. I know his accomplishments. What I am saying is how often is Badr Hari’s name brought up when discussing the best of the best? Fedor and even Rogers rank highly on that list at the moment. Hari’s name does not come up very often. I am open to think differently if you can prove otherwise.

    Badr Hari is a kick boxer……the only relevance to this arguement is Overeems chin, which looked terrible..

    I think that is why Overroid hasn’t fought since what, 07? The reason they are feeding Fedor bums is because there is zero competition in Strikeforce, and they need to make it appear that he is climbing the ladder. If they just had him smash Overroids, what is the significance of any other matchup? It would just highlight the fact that Strikeforce has absolutely nobody to challenge Fedor.

    Name the biggest threats to Fedor’s undefeated record, name all the real threats, they’re all in the UFC. Rogers is very overrated, he simply has heavy enough hands that if he flails away he can fluke a KO on anybody. And he still almost beat Fedor.

    Knockout your a moron, steroids or not Overeem is one of the top HWs in the world. He hasnt lost an MMA fight in years. He has lost 2 times in K1 recently, a decision to Remy Bonjasky, and the knockout you speak of was by Badr Hari, who is IMO top 3 HW kickboxers in the world.
