No surprise the nuthuggers come out of the woodwork to accuse Overeem of ducking.

First of all, Overeem came to America to challenge the WINNER of the fight. Fraudor lost. Then Werdum got injured, and Coker gave the OK for Overeem to fight in the K1 Grand Prix in December back in JULY.

Now all of a sudden Fraudor is challenging him despite knowing that Overeem is already booked for something? This after Overeem has challenged Fraudor for years, and M-1s retort was that he was a steroid bully?

Oh and to top it all off, in a display of Mayweather-estque ducking, Fraudor is requiring Olympic style blood testing for their fight which he doesn't even deserve!

Got to love the Fraud, making demands even when he isn't in a position to make them.

Recently defeated legend Fedor Emelianenko has issued a challenge to Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem to face him in either November or December. However, the 30-year-old Dutch striker has already committed himself to this year’s K-1 Grand Prix, which begins on Oct. 2 in Korea and culminates on Dec. 11 in Japan.

"Сertainly, I would like to have a rematch with (Fabricio) Werdum. But as he had surgery this fight unlikely to happen soon. This year, in November-December, I would like to meet in a cage with Alistair Overeem," Fedor told Mixfight.ru early Wednesday.

Overeem’s intentions to compete in K-1 are not a surprise. The Golden Glory fighter stated his likely participation back in June following Emelianenko’s stunning 69-second submission defeat to Werdum, a heavy underdog in the bout, in San Jose, Calif. In June, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker also gave Overeem his blessing to pursue his dream to become a K-1 champion, though it meant the San Jose-based promotion could lose its champion until early 2011.

In an email to Sherdog.com on Wednesday, Overeem questioned Emelianenko and his M-1 Global management team’s timing in asking for the bout when he is unavailable.

“Two weeks ago I decided to fight K-1 because Werdum was out,” said Overeem in the email. “Ironically, I have tried to challenge Fedor for almost years and two months after the Werdum fight, they want to fight me all of a sudden. It makes you wonder if they knew I made the decision to fight K-1.”

Overeem said he believes it should be Werdum, not Emelianenko, who he faces next in the Strikeforce cage. The 33-year-old Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion recently underwent minor elbow surgery and should return to competition in the first quarter of 2011, his manager Richard Wilner confirmed to Sherdog.com on Wednesday.

“I flew last minute to the States to challenge the winner. It was even on the TV that the winner of that fight should face me,” wrote Overeem. “If Werdum wasn't injured I would fight him over the K-1 because I said that Strikeforce is my priority, but now it allows me to follow my dream and goal and that's to become K-1 Grand Prix champion.”

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said on Wednesday that the promotion is still reviewing a short list of opponents for Emelianenko with M-1 Global, who co-promotes Strikeforce events that the 34-year-old Russian headlines.

Coker and M-1 Global are also in mid-negotiations to extend their co-promotional relationship for additional events including Emelianenko, as the fighter is on the last fight of his current agreement with the San Jose-based promotion.

Overeem, who dispatched Brett Rogers in less than four minutes at Strikeforce “Heavy Artillery” in May, believes there is an obvious opponent for Emelianenko to face in December.

“If you look at the virtual rankings within Strikeforce it's clear that Fedor is number three because of his loss against Werdum, and Antonio Silva is number four,” wrote Overeem. “So, let them fight and the winner fights against the winner between Werdum and myself.”

Another potential caveat to Emelianenko and M-1 Global’s challenge is talk that the Russian promotion will ask Overeem to undergo Olympic-style blood testing prior to the potential bout. An M-1 Global representative would not comment on the purported stipulation on Wednesday.

In May, Strikeforce conducted independent urinalysis drug testing on Overeem and nine other fighters in Missouri, whose athletic commission doesn’t perform standardized testing of its own. All ten fighters tested negative for performance-enhancing drugs and other stimulants. Blood testing would provide more thorough results, but is far from a standard in mixed martial arts. To date, only one U.S. regulatory agency, the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board, has conducted blood testing for select MMA events.

Coker had no specific comment for the purported reports that M-1 Global might stipulate that Overeem undergo additional testing as part of its demands.

“The state athletic commissions, which sanction our events, are responsible for referees, judges, time keepers, score keepers, medicals, rules, safety of the fighters, precautionary measures and drug testing,” wrote Coker in an email on Wednesday.

Coker added that the promotion is currently reviewing its own drug-testing policies for states where its regulatory bodies don’t conduct its own testing, and will continue to follow the already-established procedures in the states that do.

Overeem wasn’t keen on the idea of potentially being subjected to the additional testing.

“Come on. They can try to sabotage Strikeforce because of their ‘crazy’ demands but I'm not going to bow for those guys,” wrote Overeem. “They don't even do any testing at there own M-1 shows, only in the U.S because it's sanctioned by a commission. If you fight for M-1 in Russia or anywhere else you don't even need to take a test. So, before they start demanding things make sure they do it at their own shows. For now, I will follow all rules the commission gives me just like anybody else.”

Fraudor absolutely cracks me up day-by-day. Absolutely hilarious. This guy thinks he's Floyd Mayweather. His nuthuggers can make excuses for him all he wants but his ploys aren't working on people with half a brain.

Haha, this is fun. First Fedor says he wants to fight Overeem and people come out and claim he's ducking the best fighters, now Overeem says he doesn't want to fight Fedor and now people come out and claim he's right not to.

We've had this before. The winner of the #1 contender fight gets injured and instead the other guy gets the shot while the winner is recovering. Nothing unusual about this. We've had the same situation with BJ when GSP was supposed to fight Hughes but then had an injury and couldn't compete. It's not like Overeem would have to take the fight on short notice either. While he competes in K-1 Fedor could fight Bigfoot.

Isnt that how Damian Maia got his title shot??? Of-course Fedor haters are going to make a fuss about it now to discredit him.

I'm not Fedor fanboy but u can't blame his fans. Fedor is like the Michael Jordan of MMA. Hate him or love him u can't deny how big of a legend he is. For 3 years the man whooped the best fighters in the world in a company greater than the ufc which was pride. He went undefeated for 10 years (don't count that cut) and to this day he is the most skilled HW in the world u cant debate that. I think most people who dislike fedor are either hardcore ufc fans or they dislike the fact that a dude this great is not in the ufc. Think about it this way some of the most loved ufc fighters with a giant fan base are wandy,Cop, shogun, and big nog. Fedor is bigger that all four of them and is a better fighter than all 4.

Fedor isn't that big. Shogun vs Machida did better numbers than Fedor's last fight.

Fedor's last fight was piss poor from what I hear and it was on network TV at that.

Didn't even come close to selling out the arena either.

Now that the mystique and the hype is gone, he's even less interesting and will do probably even worse numbers.

Don't blame Overeem for not wanting to fight Fedor at this minute in time. Doesn't make sense for the champ to fight someone whos just coming off a loss. Werdum is the biggest heavyweight name in Strikeforce at the minute coming off his victory over Fedor.
Fedor needs to get in the win column again possibly against Arlovski. To prove he still has what it takes. Then put him in there against Overeem

Beating Arshotsky doesn't prove anything at this point. AA is broken at this point he'll hesitate to pull the trigger against a heavy bag .

Lashley might even able to beat Arlovsky right now.
