So you are saying that after pride Fedor fought the best competition available. He fought a middleweight, a bum, two hasbeens, a tireman who isn't any good, and lost to Werdum who is good but not great.

wins Carwin, Mir, Couture, Herring, Velasquez (for Brock to still be champ when Fedor fights werdum) > Lindland, Choi, Arlovski, Sylvia, and Rogers.

Losses Mir>Werdum.

And I'll be going for Fedor till i die! GO EMPEROR!
I don't think Fedor has much of a chance at this point. After losing to Werdum, he lost a lot of his value.

Imagine the hype that fight is going to get, and the hype around Fedor-Werdum II, should Fedor win.

I think Fedor is in for a world of hurt here, overeem can punish him on the feet or he can rag doll him on the ground.

If reem can KO Badri Hari, he can KO Fedor.
Rogers landed one punch (jab on the nose) on Fedor in that fight, the rest of the time he got worked standing. Overeem's striking may well be technically better than Fedor's but Fedor takes a punch well and Overeem does not. If Fedor lands a couple I can easily see Overeem packing it in, he certainly has before. I would very much like to see this fight.

a lot of the fedor mystique has dissipated already. He's still up there at the top.... only its a more level playing field, where as before he was basically untouchable for most

a win over a decorated fighter like overeem will potentially catapult him back up to mystical rank lol...

The only way he could do that is if he put together another long win streak, then he would be legendary again!

Fedor can want the champ all he wants, but the fact of the matter is that Werdum is the #1 contender now.

I honestly think if Werdum wasn't injured he would get the next shot. Since he is, who else should fight him. None of the other Strikeforce HWs deserve a shot either.
