    Star Scott Coker: Alistair Overeem, Not Fedor Emelianenko Is The Man To Beat

    If you ask Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker, golden boy Fedor Emelianenko and UFC heavyweight champs Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin got nothin’ on Alistair Overeem.

    After bumping his professional record to an impressive 33-11 by easily disposing of Brett Rogers at Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery, Coker believes his 265 pound champion is “the guy to beat”—provided a certain pre-fight drug screening comes back clean, of course.

    Much has been made of Overeem’s immediate and extended exit from the U.S. after capturing the Strikeforce crown back in November 2007. Coker refused to give up on his controversial heavyweight during his absence and believes the waiting game payed off.

    Overeem came back in an explosive way Saturday night with his 1st Round TKO and Coker is confident that it’s a sign of things to come.

    Watch MMAFighting.com ’s interview with Coker as he discusses Overeem, a potential bout with you-know-who, and the unenviable task of dealing with M-1 Global, you-know-who’s management team that has mastered the fine art of roadblocking.

    I wonder if that means they are having problems with M-1 Global.

    Even if you think Overeem is the guy to beat, he has a lot of losses and isn't as high profile as Fedor.
