    Overeem, Rogers, Werdum, or someone i'm forgetting about?

    as much as i want to see overeem-fedor, alistair needs some exposure first. It could make for a potentially big draw later on if done correctly. Have overeem-rogers and fedor-werdum, and let the winners square off.

    Fedor vs Overeem would be my choice as well. I like the idea for the mini tournament that you had too.

    I seriously doubt it.

    I'd predict a quick submission win for Fedor that makes Rogers look very one dimensional.

    If Overeem looks good in the states, I think he would be the best bet against Fedor probably that we've ever seen.

    rogers is a BIG fella, fedor may have to play strategic technical striking game to wear him thin before he has the strength/energy to take rogers off of his feet with sambo/wrestling... unless he puts him on his ass and hops on

    There isn't a single challenge in Strikeforce for Fedor, their heavyweight division is weaker than the UFC's ever been, which says a lot.

    I'd love to see Fedor cut to LHW, that would be awesome... there would actually be a good fight to have then.

    need to outstrike fedor, since hes always keen on keeping it stand up..i dont think hes the best striker out there..but elite sure.

    with all this silva machida hype people tend to forget about the incredible well roundedness of a fedor..who is imo stil the best p4p fighter in the world...

    Someone said that on MMAJunkie radio as a joke, and people believed it. He called in the next day and cleared it up.

    I definitely wouldn't consider Fedor an elite striker. He's intelligent enough not to plant his feet and brawl, but in a pure striking competition you'd see Fedor losing more.

    That being said, I agree that he's the most well-rounded fighter. Mousasi is hot on his heels, and you can't exclude GSP, Penn, and Machida. Anderson will always be held back by his wrestling, but he's the best mma striker ever.

    Silva is just a machine...... He's toyed with pretty much everyone he's fought recently...


    But as for Fedor... I dont think he'll ever lose, legitimately i.e (T)KO/Submission....
