Alistair Overeem thinks it's a little fishy that Fedor Emelianenko is suddenly clamoring for a fight with him.

Emelianenko's reps at M-1 Global made headlines this week by announcing the Russian heavyweight wants a year-end meeting Overeem – and not Fabricio Werdum, who submitted him Emelianenko back in June.

But Overeem, Strikeforce's current heavyweight champion, contends M-1 is playing "tricks" with the public to cut in line for a crack at his belt.

It all makes sense but Strikeforce has a way of making things complicated. He makes a good point about who his next opponent should be.

I see no problems with anything Overeem said. He doesn't feel any differently toward M-1 than any of the fans who are in the know.

the way the media words things totally construes everything that is going on.

fedor isnt clamoring.for one.

second.werdum will not be ready by the end of the year.people step up and take the place of injured fighters all the time.the obvious next person should be fedor.

That's the guidlines set forth by the company in previous bouts! Makes total sense! I really hope Overeem destroys both Werdum and Fedor....then he could sign with the UFC and we could watch him fight on the big stage again!
