The only way SF can make it worth while for Overeem to take this fight is if they get Werdum to sign a contract saying that when he returns from injury his next professional fight will be the winner of Overeem vs Fedor, Then it gives Overeem the chance to get what he wants both ways, if he can beat both Fedor then Werdum there is no doubt about who is the best at SF, in fact it makes his path to holding his belt tougher than expected and if he wins both those fights there will be no question that he is one of the best if not the best HW in the world.
So if SF can guarantee him the Werdum match after (should he win of course) then he should take this fight, in fact even if they cant get Werdum to agree they then should let the world know that Werdum is dodging him and not give him the Fedor rematch that he wants ether.
In fact SF could be on to a huge win if Overeem beats Fedor, it will take all the light out of Werdums victory over him and cause a situation where the only course of action is to see Werdum vs Overeem and Werdum would loose a ton of respect that he has earned via defeating Fedor should he then dodge Overeem if Overeem has defeated Fedor also, becasue right now Werdum is living on the legacy that he is the only man to beat Fedor.
With Werdum been injured this fight makes a lot of sense as well, we all want to see both these guys fight and with Werdum injured its hard to dispute that Fedor is the No.1 contender coming off a loss or not, but this fight should it happen should defiantly define who Werdum fights next, ether Fedor wins and Werdum gets his rematch and title shot, or Overeem wins and Werdum has to fight the only other guy to beat Fedor.
