Despite the yesterday’s announcement that undisputed P4P King and WAMMA Heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko will face Fabricio Werdum in May, “The Last Emperor”‘s management company have confirmed he take a fight with Alistair Overeem in the future, provided Overeem takes a standard drug test leading up to the fight.
Steroid claims obviously being a sore spot amongst Overeem’s camp, but it is fair to say their response was a little surprising. Alistair Overeem’s Golden Glory Gym coach Martjin de Jong agreed that Fedor Emelianenko deserves a title shot and that he is looking for that match-up. “The Demolition Man’s” career has been somewhat bizarre since winning the strikeforce heavyweight belt in 2007, given he has yet to defend it, or return to America, leading people to throw all sorts of steroid accusations around, given Overeem has effectively gone from 205 to 265 so suddenly.
Meanwhile, Dutch sources claim that Alistair Overeem vs Brett Rogers fight is currently in works for the Strikeforce on CBS event in April. Jake Shields vs Dan Henderson has been already confirmed as the headliner for the event, as Mousasi vs King Mo bout is expected to be announced very soon. Scott Coker’s promotion will test themselves against the stacked UFC Abu Dhabi card, that will take place seven days before the Strikeforce event on CBS, on April 10th.
