"Let's just say this, there's a couple of fights that I would like to have, and I'm going to start with the first one: the first one is going to definitely be Werdum -- he's the winner of that fight [against Fedor Emelianenko]. I'm sure, 100% sure, I'm going to beat him," Overeem said.

Overeem wants Werdum next not only because he recently defeated Emelianenko, but because "The Demolition Man" lost to "Vai Cavalo" in the first round of the 2006 Pride Open Weight Grand Prix.

If it stays standing I don't see why Overeem would have any difficulty dispatching Werdum.

That being said, Werdum stands a chance against anybody in the world on the ground. He'd earned at least that amount of respect even before he defeated Fedor.

Well, if nothing has changed on the elbow surgery front, I don't think Overeem will get his wish.

Overheem knows Werdum is injured. Is he ducking Fedor?

I doubt it. He probably feels he has a better chance at beating the guy that beat Fedor, than beating Fedor himself.

If it stays standing Overeem will crush him. On the ground Werdum will tie him into knots. I will be picking Overeem but this is as close to a striker vs grappler match as it gets now a days. (Aside from Anderson vs Maia maybe.)

Sure he will, it's his wish to fight several different places in one year, and with Werdum on the back burner it gives him time for K-1.

I see why he wants Werdum, but I am way impressed with Werdum. He beat Fedor, and in MMA slapping a sub on someone is impresive, just like ko'ing someone. Winning a ud is not as impresive as a finish imo, and people aren't giving Werdum the respect he deserves.

I wanna see Fedor vs Overeem
Werdum is injured and those 2 should stay busy

Now you're just challenging the Strikeforce way of doing things.

im also glad 2 c them using the #1 contender correctly. I never could understand why rogers got the title shot after fedor put him out they have done alot of stuff backwards latley its was like overeem was trying 2 dodge fedor and they give him brett instead.
