Always one to consider his options, the 6' 5? powerhouse is currently in talks with every major fighting organization in the business.

“My management is talking with the UFC, K-1, Dream, Strikeforce and Affliction but there is no deal as of yet,” said Overeem. “I’m in no rush because I still have 2 fights on my Dream contract.”

If that match happened I'd have to pick overeem in this one with the way he's been performing lately.

If I was in his position I would sign an 8 fight contract with FEG, 4 in Dream, 4 in K-1.

The only guy I can think of that I would pick to beat Fedor.

He's progressed by leaps as of late, but I hope he stays over in Japan.

I would definetally like to see him in the UFC. But, I would like him to go to Affliction first for a fight with Fedor. After the Barnett fight of course.

Hey man i'm with ya
I've been thinking the same thing

He's been a favorite of mine since he started
His only problem is that he goes too hard, taking high risks
The kinda guy i like

Still a young guy, he's just coming into his own at age 28 ( 40 fights)
He's put on weight and become huge
His technique has improved dramatically
He's on a tear lately
He just needs to focus in his fights more

Fedor will keep winning
But he can't do it forever
By that time Allistair just might have beaten the likes of
Silvia, Arlovski or Werdum
Settle the score with Kharitanov
And avenge himself against Lil nog
Ok, he's got a long way to get his legit chance
But it's something to look out for if Alistair has a good year
