Write it down: Alistair Overeem wants to fight Fedor in April 2010


"I want you to write this down: Alistair Overeem wants to fight Fedor, April 2010. So write that down. (Asked where he wants the fight to take place) I don't care. Maybe in DREAM, maybe in Strikeforce. I don't care -- rather in DREAM but Strikeforce is also OK."

Strikeforce World Heavyweight Champion, Alistair Overeem, calls out the promotion's most recent free agent acquisition -- and arguably the top heavyweight fighter on the planet -- Fedor Emelianenko, after dispatching of James Thompson in 33 seconds at DREAM 12. "The Demolition Man" hasn't lost in nearly two years -- a win streak that actually began when he submitted Paul Buentello to capture the title back in 2007. The only problem is he hasn't even attempted to defend his title once since that time. Is 2010 the year Overeem returns to the states to defend his crown or will he continue to holdout overseas? Check out Overeem's post-fight thoughts after the jump.
