"To be very honest, the situation with Fedor (Emelianenko) is that he's fighting June 26. Of course, we'll have to wait and see what happens. Alistair (Overeem) has told me many times he would love to fight Fedor. He has called Fedor out in Japan when he fights in Japan all the time. He's looking forward to taking the fight. That's going to be something where we'll have to sit down with him after the June 26 fight. Like I said, you can't count Fabricio (Werdum) out."

 - Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker talks to the media during the "Heavy Artillery" post-fight press conference about a potential match-up between Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem and top-ranked opponent Fedor Emelianenko. "Demolition Man" disposed of former contender Brett Rogers in the first round of their championship tilt on May 15 and now wants a crack at the man who once ruled PRIDE FC when the Golden Glory pupil was still wet behind the ears. While it's a match that many fans are now calling for, expect Fabricio Werdum to try and throw a Brazilian monkey wrench into those plans on June 26 at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.
