Scott Coker: Alistair Overeem vs. Fedor Emelianenko, winner vs. Fabricio Werdum

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker feels that WAMMA champion, Fedor Emelianenko should face Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem next, despite losing his last fight, with the winner facing Fabricio Werdum.

Coker, speaking via Sherdog.com, said:

“My feeling is maybe Fedor should fight Alistair Overeem and whoever wins that fight gets to fight Fabricio Werdum. I would love to see that fight too, Alistair and Fedor, I would love to see that fight happen.”

“Here’s the thing, we just saw Fedor fight Werdum; I’m not saying we couldn’t do the rematch [Fedor vs. Werdum] first but I’m saying there are a couple options on the table. Until we sit down with M-1, we’re just talking about different options and that [Fedor vs. Overeem] is one of the options.”
