... according to a few recent Twitter transmissions from the "Demolition Man" (@alistairovereem) directed toward Antonio Silva:
"Everybody is talkin about me and Fedor, it’s not fair to you. Fedor should fight you in December, then problem is solved..... The real reason M-1/Fedor called me out is to distract attention of a possible match with Silva. He wants Fedor but M-1 don’t want Silva."
Apparently Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem agrees with Antonio Silva that Fedor Emelianenko should fight "Bigfoot" next. Silva has asked for this fight, but the Russian's cagey camp doesn't seem interested. Overeem has already stated that because Fabricio Werdum defeated Emelianenko, and because he's currently out of commission recovering from elbow surgery, that he intends to enter the 2010 K-1 Grand Prix tournament and wait until he's healthy. Emelianenko's camp recently attempted to goad Overeem into a fight, releasing a statement essentially calling him out, but the Dutchman is not biting. Are there any other options left or is an Emelianenko-Silva showdown the only one left on the table?
