Fabricio Werdum prefers 2011 rematch with Fedor, not Alistair Overeem

"Vai Cavalo's" manager, Richard Wilner, tells MMAweekly his fighter's wishes for 2011:

"He's still undergoing physical therapy, and physical therapy is more intense than one might imagine, and it includes a number of plyometric exercises and weightlifting. He started light training about 10 days ago, so he's progressing remarkably.... Be it against Alistair (Overeem) for the belt, although Fabricio's already beaten Alistair, so some may see that as a step back, although Alistair is a completely different fighter now. By step back, we absolutely mean no disrespect to Alistair, we just mean that they fought before and while it was a long time ago, I don't even know if it would be considered a rematch, but if it was considered a rematch there's one guy out there that’s arguably deserving of a rematch more than Alistair, and that's Fedor (Emelianenko)."

It's been almost four months since Fabricio Werdum turned the MMA world upside down when he submitted the man who many believed was the best fighter in the sport today, Fedor Emelianenko. Since then, Werdum has been sidelined after undergoing elbow surgery and will continue to be out of action until 2011. The bout with "The Last Emperor" was thought of to be a number one contender bout, but "Vai Cavalo's" surgery and Emelianenko's contract status has left Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem's next contender up in the air. Would you rather see a rematch between Werdum and Fedor or a rematch with Werdum and the "Demolition Man?"
