Fedor Next Fight in March 2010 - Maybe Alistair Overeem
 
Quote:

Heavy.com has learned Fedor Emelianenko's next fight is scheduled for March 2010. Fedor's manager, Vadim Finkelchtein, has confirmed that Fedor will not be attending DREAM's New Years show this year. The two candidates in discussion for the March showdown are Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum. There is particular interest in Overeem since agreements with Strikeforce have already been arranged.

There has been rumors around Overeem use of steroids. Vadim Finkelchtein, Fedor's manager, has said they don't want to rush things and will give the opponent adequate time to pass the appropriate testing.

this fight should be great! I'm kind of scared for Fedor, I personally think Overeem and Lesnar are currently the only two people who pose a threat to him.

What do you guys think, who has a better chance, Werdum or Overeem?

Overeem is very big and very talented. He has great stand up along with one of the better clinch games in the heavyweight division and one of the more underrated ground games in all of mma. Wedum has nothing to offer Fedor that he hasnt seen and beaten before. Werdum has good bjj, but he hasnt been able to transition it to mma as well as other top bjj practitioners like Damian Maia. His stand up is decent but now where near Fedors level. Overeem has a good chance against Fedor, Werdum has less nothing to offer Fedor and will get finished in the first round if they fight. Just my take.

Fedor doesn't even fight in the UFC but gets more threads about him in the UFC forum than anyone else.

Fedor will stop both of them. Looks like Overeem is going to be first, but only if he passes all the tests.

They should just make it Fedor vs Werdum and Overeem in a handicapped match cause thats the only way they may have a chance. Fedor would beat either of them in the time it takes him to take out his garbage. I dont see how either of them have a chance.

Personally i hate overeem and I know fedor will destroy him like everyone else hes fought. The fight doesn't really interest me. id rather see fedor and werdum. I'd look good if i was on steroids and fought cans in japan too.

The_Sandman 11-18-2009 09:30 PM

Overeem would be a better choice than Werdum.
Werdum is good and looked impressive in his win over Antonio Silva.... but to fight Fedor in a competetive match??? :sarcastic12: I do not think so.

I don't even believe that Werdum could beat Brett Rodgers.

Overeem is the champ, and is more of a legit-threat to Fedor. :thumbsup:

In the end, it really does not matter....

Fedor is the MAN!!!:smoke01:

I dont even know how they can call Overeem their champion. The guy has only fought there twice and hasnt fought there in 2 years. He has fought 6 mma bouts for other organizations since then. He should have been striped awhile ago

Meh, there's no one ON PAPER right now who would give Fedor a good fight. Brock's out for awhile, and that's about the only guy I could see giving Fedor a good run.

So, go ahead throw whoever at Fedor, I love watching the man fight. Guy puts on a great show no matter what.

Fun fight, but Fedor takes this pretty much anywhere he wants.
