    While most people walking on this side of sanity wouldn’t dare stand opposite Alistair Overeem in a fight, Fedor Emelianenko’s camp claims they welcome a showdown with Strikeforce’s beastly champ in the semifinals of the Heavyweight Grand Prix.

    “We don’t look at Alistair as some dangerous animal that we’re afraid of. If he meets Overeem in the tournament, then he meets Overeem in the tournament,” M-1 Global president Vadim Finkelchtein told Sherdog. “We didn’t do any planning regarding which opponents [Fedor] would fight when considering the deal.”

    Although it took endless months of intense negotiations to finally iron out a contract extension, one of Strikeforce’s major selling points to M-1 Global was the capability to arrange Emelianenko vs. Overeem. So if the Dutchmen think the Russians were heading for the snow-covered hills, think again.

    “I think Overeem’s manager was insinuating that we did not want to fight Overeem. Clearly, that is not the case. We have no objections in fighting him if they should meet in the next round,” Finkelchtein matter-of-factly stated. “As long as they are fighting in America, we are ready to fight him at any time.”

    We’ll let you decided whether Finkelchtein was suggesting they’d only fight ‘Ubereem’ on U.S. soil because of the stricter drug screening policies enforced stateside…

    Emelianenko faces Antonio Silva in the opening round of the tourney, while Overeem will be pitted against upset specialist Fabricio Werdum. The superstars will have to dispose of their worthy 1stRound foes in order to make the scrap to end all scraps go down in the SEMIFINALS.

    I can't believe M-1 are letting Fedor do this. This is a murderer's row of heavyweights. I'm impressed.

    I seriously hope Dana is watching and taking notes

    he always throws out the "who have they beat" argument

    same could be said for his roster.... they've beat each other

    these 8 heavyweights vs the top 8 from UFC

    strikeforce wins 6 of 8 if not 7 or even a clean sweep

    lol exactly

    the guys on UFC HW roster has beat journymen to get a title shot, so i dont see why dana is constantly being such a hypocrite

    cain's only notable win before the title shot was his KO over a shot nog. Cheick Kongo and Ben Rothwell = journymen, the rest of the guys he fought were bums

    out of the whole heavyweight picture in the UFC, JDS has the best resume, not to mention he also has the most wins

    That's the thing, though. You need to use Dana logic:

    UFC fighters = the best fighters.

    Fighters elsewhere = Not worthy of the top 10.

    Therefore fighters elsewhere have never beaten any high level fighters. If they've beaten UFC fighters in the past, it was ages ago before they were the fighter they are today.

    Simple, really.

    That's why the whole "who have they beaten" thing is not the way to go. It's for lazy people that don't want to put forth the effort to assess and compare skills, educate themselves about the various aspects, etc.

    That's how Overeem is in my top ten despite not beating anybody else in my top 10 recently.

    although the whole clean sweep thing was a reach. There isn't a person on the list who wouldn't struggle against a wrestler like Cain if the fight went that way.

    Barnett, Fedor, Reem, and Werdum are all higher level international or world class grapplers, Cain is just a college wrestling national class grappler. Only top heavyweight in Strikeforce he'd probably give problems to is Bigfoot Silva

    Cain vs Barnett - Barnett wins via Kimura
    Cain vs Fedor - Fedor wins via Armbar
    Cain vs Overeem - Overeem wins via Guillotine Choke
    Cain vs Werdum - Werdum wins via Triangle Choke

    Wrestling, not grappling.

    I know, I know.

    Fedor kills cans at sambo.
    Werdum is legit high level BJJ, which is often stifled by wrestlers with bjj defense.
    overeem has a good guillotine.
    barnett and his steroids do well at the highly competitive world of super heavyweight no gi jiu jitsu.

    bye.

    I know, I know.

    Fedor hasn't medaled twice in international judo championships and twice in national judo championships, and didn't destroy every wrestler he faced with a pedigree lightyear's ahead of Cain's underachieving college wrestling.
    Werdum's 4-time champion submission grappling won't be enough for Cain's college level wrestling and untested submission defense
    Reem isn't an ADCC continental champion
    Barnett's BJJ + Catch Wrestling won't overcome Cain's one dimensional grappling skill.

    :sarcasm:

    ha, all the fight of a fat sarcastic broad that doesn't know what she's talking about.

    I'm going to pick on you specifically because you like to pull the world class card waay too much. World class wrestling = something to talk about, world class bjj = something to talk about, world class grappling of some other kind = on par with calling a tae kwon do medalist a world class striker. you make it sound like judo guys have been killing people left and right for fucks sake lol.

    I like Fedor, I really do, but there's a reason why he's one of the few sambo guys you hear about successfully doing mma just like machida is one of the few karate guys you hear about.

    and fedor has struggled against every aging one dimensional wrestler from ohio state, wait til he's in there against a prime wrestler that trains his ass off. and im not saying he can't beat cain. fuck cain. im just saying that you need a dose of reality.

    werdum would likely get ko'd, lets not kid ourselves.

    Save the horse meat's adcc credentials for people that can't read. The guys he guillotined weren't exactly roger gracies. He's very good on the ground and slick for his size, but i'll pass on that resume you're offering.

    and what did ivanov claim brought him a sambo victory over fedor?

    that's right, superior wrestling.

    not exactly dan gable, tbh.

    You must not have seen the ivanov win over fedor, it was very close, and ivanov won from outscoring fedor when laying on fedor in side mount for a while, ivanov hardly even wrestled at all. Meanwhile the first matchup between the two, fedor destroyed the fuck out of ivanov

    So all you have left is splitting hairs over what is and what isn't wrestling?

    I accept the surrender.

    No, the fact that you use the ivanov match is ridiculous enough

    ps: barnett is washed up. he might make finals but thats because he got placed in a pond with goldfish, if he doesnt make finals he should think of retiring
