One day your children will read about a thirty-foot tall giant that lived in the hills of Russia. They will learn that his garments were made from the fear and tears of his opponents and his bones were constructed of adamantium. When this giant would throw an overhand right, planets would recoil in terror and the entire field of astrophysics would take note on its precise trajectory. Time and space would stand in awe at the various ways in which this man broke the limitations they've placed on the universe. This man is Fedor Emelianenko and in this interview with Mixfight.ru, he has finally called out Alistair Overeem.

"Absolutely, I would like a rematch with Werdum. But as he was recently operated on, then as soon as this fight is unlikely to happen. This year, in November-December, I would prefer to meet in a cage with Alistair Overeem"

So can everyone stop saying Fedor is dodging now? People piss me off...

Fedor vs Overeem could be the main event of Dynamite.... if this happens idk i think my head might implode. i already wait every year for Dynamite and i usually am more stoked about it then any other card. with Fedor on it i think i might not even go out and just sit at home and lay in the puddle of my own juices while having the biggest multiple mma orgasm ive ever had.

I like Fedor as much as the next guy but I would like to see him ge beat up. I think Overeem could do some serious damage to him. If it was Fedor from about 5 years ago I would pick him, but I think Overeem can take him now.

The guy loses one fight to one of the best grapplers in the world, and all of the sudden his last five years of competition are rendered meaningless? Give me a break...

Make this fight happen in America under a state athletic commission please.

Both guys are dodging the UFC. Be a proud champ like Jake, and challenge yourself against the best.

Now that everyone knows being inside the death clutch, means a sure loss for anyone, and (that you can hit Lesnar with an aluminum bat, and Lesnar would spit nails back at you.) everyone is gonna dodge the UFC HW div.

I still think Werdum would beat Overeem and Fedor, and Lesnar would swallow Werdum like an appetizer imo.

didn't say i didn't like him and his accomplishments weren't great. im a huge fan. Werdum IS one of the best grapplers out there. if he's gonna lose i would just like to see him get thrashed as opposed to a quick submission or a flash ko. i just think Overeem could give him a great fight, thats all. meant no disrespect to him or his accomplishments.

Fedor should just sign with the UFC and fight the "creme de la creme" and stop this stand off with Dana. Lets get this party started for 2011. I don't want to see Fedor and Overdeem I want to see Fedor vs. Carwin, Dos Santos, Nelson, Lesner etc.......

this is one of the most exciting matchups for me. im a big fan of both but i got to say, i think fedor is in for a serious beating. Overeem by knee from hell. also, why do people say that overeem is dodging the UFC? i remember him saying that he would give up his title to sign with UFC. my question is, why the hell was dana white so hot after fedor when he could have gotten overeem for sure, who IMO is better than fedor. just my opinion though.

I would put good money on Werdum in a Lesnar fight. Werdum has the better stand up and grappling ability. I just dont see how Lesnar would pull that one off without ending up getting subbed. LESNAR IS NOT THE NEW FEDOR. Everyone seems to think Lesnar is this ultimate badass now and to be honest i dont really understand why. None of that will matter anymore anyway when Cain slaps a clossal beat down on him.

The reason everybody thinks Lesnar's an ultimate badass, as you called it, is because he withstood at least 5 minutes of nonstop punishment from Carwin, survived, and won the fight, by tapout no less, which was definitely unexpected. I wouldn't call him unstoppable of course, but surely he deserves props for surviving Carwin.

I'd have to say, Werdum would do the best against Lesnar if he had to fight against any one of those three tomorrow.
