Fedor Emelianenko Wants Alistair Overeem Next

Fedor Emelianenko Wants Alistair Overeem Next | Steve Rattlesnake

With the recent news about the elbow surgery of Fabricio Werdum, a reporter asked Fedor via mixfight.ru to comment on this situation.

Fedor Emelianenko: "Absolutely, I would like a rematch with Werdum, but since he has recently undergone surgery, this fight is unlikely to take place. This year, in November-December, I would prefer to meet in a cage with Alistair Overeem"

please let this fight happen i hope the M-1 crew doesnt try & make some ri-tarded stipulations and just kill the whole deal before it even gets off the ground

But a true champion, face to face with his darkest hour, will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, and fights, and then fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies- kenny powers

Bad idea Fedor. This juiced up kickboxing monster can give Fedor a lot of problems.

Overeem can give anyone problems right now, but isn't that the whole point?

You fight him, then you find out what happens. I wish people would stop being so protective about Fedor's record and legacy.

I'm not saying Fedor shouldn't take the fight, but I'm surprised since he has a history of looking for the easiest fights.

And he could lose. Those are the options

The guy has more top 10 wins than any MMA fighter ever, so I don't think you can claim he's looking for easy fights.

This just proves Fedor fights anybody, Overeem is the ultimate test. The man has the size and skills unlike any HW right now.

If this is indeed true, that would be pretty incredible. The most epic fight in SF history no doubt. I think that the fight between Emelianenko and Overeem could go both ways, but I am leaning towards Overeem just because he's been a beast as of late and I think he could overwhelm most HW's in the world.
I would rank the world HW rankings like this:
1. Lesnar
2. Overeem/F. Emelianenko/Velasquez/Carwin (toss up for #2/3/4/5)
6. Dos Santos
7. Nogueira/Silva/Werdum (toss up for #7/8/9)
10. Barnett/Mir/A. Emelianenko/Kongo/Gonzaga/Rogers (toss up for #10 and beyond)
