Alistair Overeem reiterated his desire to face Fedor Emelianenko at the Dynamite!! 2009 post-fight press conference. As we recently learned, Overeem has another K-1 fight coming up in March which all but rules him out for an appearance on CBS for Strikeforce in April. He says he’ll be ready in May or June though and wants Fedor then.
“In March I have other obligations with K-1. So I think April is a little bit too close to do such an important fight. So March, K-1 and then May-June, Fedor. That’s the plan.”
Problem is unless Strikeforce and CBS push their second network show back a month or two, Fedor will be fighting in April, so he won’t be ready to get back in the cage in May or June just because Overeem finally found time to fit a trip to the US into his busy schedule. They need to fight, let’s just hope Overeem makes time for it at some point in 2010.
