Overeem Thinks Fedor is Scared to Fight Him


(Fear is not in Fedor’s programming)

The most interesting story that came out of the Strikeforce conference call today was Alistair Overeem‘s  proclamation that Fedor Emelianenko is scared to fight him. 

"I’ve been challenging Fedor for some time now. His management has declined to fight me on numerous occasions," Overeem told reporters on the call. "If you have two parties and one of them is willing to fight and the other isn’t than what are you going to do?" 


After realizing that his insinuation may be a bit off base, considering the fact that Cyborgs like Fedor are not programmed to display fear, but can recognize it in their opponents, the Dutch-born Strikeforce heavyweight champion backtracked slightly, saying he feels that it’s Emelianenko’s M-1 management team that is the problem.

"I know Fedor’s a fighter and he doesn’t care who he fights, so I know it’s his management. It takes two to tango," he said. "They see me as a threat. One of M-1 Global’s managers knows how I train and has had an eye on me throughout my career. Any potential threat, they’re going to stay away from that."

For their part, The Last Emperor’s camp has maintained that they would have no issue with their charge facing Overeem as long as he passes pre-fight drug screening, a feat that Overeem somewhat creepily explained today will not be a problem for his fight with Brett Rogers this month, nor would it be if and when he faces Fedor.

"People can say what they want. People can say what they think," said Overeem, referring to the growing opinion that he has used performance enhancing drugs. "I’m going to have to pee, Brett’s going to have to pee, we all have to pee. There’s going to be a positive or a negative, and I know it will be negative."

Don’t worry, Potato Nation. He didn’t really mean, EVERYBODY has to pee. Just everybody who is fighting on the card.

The guys shows up after 2 1/2 years (of fighting chumps) wearing what appears to be a fake muscle suit and has the nerve to say that Fedor is scared of him? What a joke. Fedor must break you!

Bumfights Fighting Championship got shut down? Then what is this goddam bloodyhobo.com you all keep talking about? Why won't anybody evertell me? Is this bloodyhobo.com the new gay bath house of the 90's or something?

Fbf and Sparrow both have good points. How can you not pull for the simple, chubby, even tempered russian killing machine. Specially when the dude is 240lb soaking chubbed and destroys guys who are 250-280. At the same time...I'm sure that Lesnar, Carwin, Cain, and JDS would give Fedor all he could handle. We all want to see it...but as always money comes between it all. Oh well...we can only hope something bad happens to strikeforce so that the biggest paycheck will only be provided from the UFC and the russians will have to choose the deal on bottom line alone. Also....I love my potato nation...urine comments are so funny they make me squirt the topic.

Fedor would hurt Overeem bad. Even with his steroids, Overeem would get KO'd!

If only there was a picture of him with his pet turtle...

Fedor's management won't let him fight anyone who's in the top 10.
Which is smart. Nowadays nobody gets paid much for beating up bums since Bumfights.com got shut down.

One punch from Fedor will fucking RUIN you. I saw him fight Coleman at Pride 32 and you could literally hear his punches from the nosebleeds.
rlh61- May 5, 2010 at 7:09 am
Yup, I'm a Fedor fan as well. Hard to not like the guy...but it's okay to hate M1.
fatbellyfrank- May 5, 2010 at 5:58 am
yeah, dont think I'd wanna be anywhere near him when he's in kick ass mode, but sure would love to hang out at Baskin & Robbin's with him.
ReX13- May 5, 2010 at 5:46 am
Yeah, look at that smiling happy face and try...i dare you to TRY NOT TO GRIN.

You just can't hate the guy.
fatbellyfrank- May 5, 2010 at 5:43 am
But, but you cant hate Fedor, the sweaters, the icecream, how can you not love him?
RSparrow- May 5, 2010 at 5:38 am
Listen...


I've had Enough.

I honestly believe Fedor could be dodging this fight, and I'm sick of everyone still talking about this guy like he's some kind of god. WHO THE FUCK HAS THIS GUY FOUGHT RECENTLY!??????

Yes, he's one of the most talented fighters of our generation, but if you want to be the best, show the fucking world that you will fight ANY person at ANY time.

Dana has tried NUMEROUS times to sign this guy, and hate me if you want, but he would have his fucking hands full with UFC's tops 3 heavyweights. Instead he wants to fight fucking no names, once or twice a year.

Fuck Fedor. FUCK FEDOR.

+1 If I want to read some srs MMA bizness, there's a million sites out there for that. If I want a good laugh, along w/ an excellent diagram showing Fedor's neural net processor, it's CagePotato all day.

I don't know why but I feel they just do marketing right now and if the plan goes right and they come out clean and winner of their next fight it will happen.

Fedor should win easily against Werdum, but Rogers got bombs. I feel Overoid is going for a tough ride.

The trick with steroid is that you take it while in japan, stay a long period of time their training your ass off and eating horse. Then while waiting to be clean again you beat up several hams. Make a test of your own, if it's clean you come make cash in US.

This site might not actually have tons of exclusive stories and what not, but you gotta admit, we have the most clever and funny comments section of any fucking site on the net.
Steffmeister- May 5, 2010 at 4:11 am
@ Smeed52 +1 for the poodle comment
Jim- May 5, 2010 at 1:08 am
The fact that they are putting specific preconditions on a fight with Overeem. Makes me think they are a little wary. Was never a precondition to Fedor fighting before.
Mr_Misanthropy- May 5, 2010 at 12:46 am
Wizzinator anyone? I'm sure they make a shade just for you.
Thatsozay- May 4, 2010 at 11:19 pm
Phew! I thought I was gunna have to ask my little brother to pee in a bottle for me again! My stupid parole officer wants some like EVERY month, and my brother is mad at me right now cuz I ate the last hot pocket again.
KingAtRock- May 4, 2010 at 10:18 pm
I'd be afraid of getting your steroid infected blood on me.
fatbellyfrank- May 4, 2010 at 8:59 pm
@ dickface, thats why we need fedor in UFC, Dana would make him come round and read you that story, and somedays your getting LOL's all over the place , other day's its like, "Is no-one gettin this shit, I think its funny", and as said before, feel free to head over for a hot tub, just no gettin fresh with Tinkerbell
Cheers man
Dickface- May 4, 2010 at 8:29 pm
@FatBellyFrank.

They're all just jokes man and apparently, pretty bad ones.

How else would you explain it? I ask Fedor's management to have him come read me a nite-nte story and he declines daily. The only explanation is that he can't read. It makes as much sense as what Overreemed is saying
Kimbos Bread- May 4, 2010 at 8:15 pm
"I'm going to have to pee, Brett's going to have to pee, we all have to pee. There's going to be a positive or a negative, and I know it will be negative."


Overeem then walked into the testing room. Loud popping noises were heard, followed by a high pitched scream that could have only come from a little girl.

Inside, the room was completely empty. There was nobody in there but Overeem holding his cup of fresh hot urine.

The sample tested positive.

ReX13- May 4, 2010 at 7:15 pm
Also, the comments section is pretty effin funny too.

+1 to pretty much everyone.
HokeyPokeyLikeAoki- May 4, 2010 at 7:10 pm
After Overeem stated "I'm going to have to pee, Brett's going to have to pee, we all have to pee," he finished the interview by clarifying the meaning of this statement with the following:

"I guess what I'm trying to say, is that if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change! "
