Alistair Overeem - "I hope Fedor can read this and discovers the truth"

Exclusive interview with the recent triumphant of K-1, Alistair Overeem, in which he makes an open statement to Fedor Emelinanenko, talks about “Steroid Bully” accusations from M-1, goes over his fantastic documentary (“The Reem”) and opens up about his plans for 2011.

Let’s switch to MMA now. Last week, great Fedor Emelianenko made very uncharacteristic comments, saying that you are “running away from him". Here is his direct quote: “Today, Strikeforce cannot find me a serious opponent. Alistair Overeem finding all kind of excuses not to fight me” Then Fedor also said that you declined a fight against him.

Alistair Overeem: Here we go again (laughs). There was a lot of discussion if this was really Fedor saying that because people where telling that Fedor would never give a reaction like that. I know for a fact that M-1 does most of the talking when Fedor is interviewed in writing so I’m not surprised if M-1 gave this answer. On the other hand it could also be that Fedor made these comments but was not well informed by M-1 about the negotiation with Strikeforce and myself. M-1 is doing a great job of keeping Fedor away of the true reality about what is going on. If Fedor reads the internet especially in the US then he will be shocked how many bad things have been said about him and especially M-1. They singlehandedly destroyed the legacy Fedor had with all their weird demands and strange comments during the year. So I hope Fedor read this and will tell him exactly what happened. You challenged me to late and I was already committed for the K-1 and don’t blame me because I was calling you out for more than a year but your management company gave all sort of excuses not to fight me. They need months of negotiations with Strikeforce before they can make a fight happen and I’m not the person that’s going to wait for you because I want to fight as much as I can. I’m more than happy to fight you but now you have to wait for me this time, sorry about that (laughs)

Both these guys deserve to be in strikeforce, they can't schedule fights the fans want if there life depends on it.

Why would he squash him? Fedors 1 loss was by a imo lucky sub. Fedor does great against strikers.

This is all such a crock. Truth is, Fedor is square in the middle of the pack among the HW's. Has nothing to do with his age, or slowing down, or anything like that. He's just been overtaken by a division that is improving rapidly. Someone will retort, "but he only has one loss!!!!" Considering he's been ducking the best competition for about 5 years, and still managed to lose to a UFC reject, (and almost lose to a tire salesman) puts it in better perspective. Win loss ratios don't man squat if you're not fighting the best.

Fedor and his management know that Overeem is closer to the front of the pack and very likely to beat him, or worse, embarrass him. They could have fought him if they wanted to. I wouldn't doubt it if this is all a game on their part to duck while appearing not to.

Frankly, I'd rather see Overeem and Werdum in the UFC than Fedor. I don't think Fedor has any desire to take on the young lions there. He going to look for one easy win and then retire - in shame.

Lucky sub? Come on Fedor has struggle the most against good BJJ guys he fights arguably the best submission grappler on the planet and gets submitted by a beautiful display of BJJ and you chalk it up to a lucky sub?

I beilieve Fedor would get beat down badly because Overeem is not just a powerful striker but a technical one as well with all of his K1 experience. If it hits the ground Fedor will be on bottom and Overeem is a good bjj black belt with so much additional strength (from what i believe to be a massive amount of roids lol) to help him just pound away

You're right, I just like to think of it as lucky since Fedor's gotten out of so many bad situations, and to get caught so quick like that... I still think Fedor would catch Reem and sub him.

Fedor was trying to be subbed it looked like to me. I mean Werdum almost has him and then Fedor throws himself right back into the same position? Lol at the people who claim he rocked fabricio too, guy wasn't hurt at all and baited him perfectly. Won me most of my vbookie points
