I'd love to see this match again, but kinda fear that Overeem's got soooooo much physicality on his side nowadays that he just tosses Werdum around and avoids the takedown by simply outboxing Werdum and not risking any legkicks to avoid the takedown. I love Werdum, but for somebody with legitimately shitty striking, going up against a juiced up K1-level striker just screams MDK. Overeem won't be arrogant/stupid enough to try Werdum on the ground after a knockdown like Fedor was and in turn, I see this getting ugly fast.
Personally, they need Fedor back in the main event because he's just such a massive star, but IF he fights Overeem and loses, then Overeem is now your number one HW and you have to go with him, which isn't a bad thing. He's got a milliondollar look, exciting fighting style and a personna that can sell tickets, SURE, there's always that risk that he blows a piss test, but at this point Coker and co are just standing aroud with their dick in their hands while Fedor decides whether he cares to fight once within anything resembling an 18 month calander, so it's kinda a push in a way. This fight only makes sense if the Farce in the meantime gives Fedor the much anticipated Barnett bout, otherwise, they're just wasting time.
