We all know Overeem wants this fight Fedor doesn't because odds are, he'll get the hell beat out of him and completely drop out of the P-4-P rankings - what would that do for M-1 Global image and their tournaments.
What is M-1 Global - "The Official Site of Fedor Emilianeko" it says it right one their website.
People make it seem like Fedor is being forced to not take this fight, like he's some puppet that can't speak for himself. He can do what he wants. He's really just scared, it's pathetic.
Overeem would have to go on mass MMA media campaign challenging Fedor, to rake the fight, for the Strikeforce belt. Or maybe he can 'apply' for M-1 Global and challenge their 7-4 Russian HW champion "Maxim Grishin," beat the hell out of in Moscow, St. Petersberg..wherever.
