Scott Coker: Fedor Emelianenko vs. the loser of Overeem vs. Werdum

Strikeforce CEO, Scott Coker is expecting to pair formerly ranked number one fighter on the planet, Fedor Emelianenko against the loser of the upcoming world grand prix quarter final fight between Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum.

Coker, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“If the fighter doesn’t want to fight you’re not gonna want him to fight. If the fighter doesn’t want to fight the promoter doesn’t make him fight. And if he wants to retire then it’s time to walk away. But I don’t think that’s the case … and I think the loser of Overeem and Werdum, that would be a great fight for Fedor.”

“I’m sure he wasn’t feeling good and he said, ‘Hey, is this really worth it?’ But I have no doubt he will be back.”
