Is Fedor Emelianenko Pulling A Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Wants Drug Testing Against Overeem

New, 27 comments

Remember when Floyed Mayweather Jr. wanted Manny Pacquio to pass a drug test before their boxing match that subsequently never happened?  According to our SBN brethren at Headkick Legend, Fedor Emelianenko will not fight Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem unless he takes a drug test.  Check it:

M-1's Apy Echteld said that they were interested in fighting Overeem, however they would not fight unless Overeem was drug tested leading up to the fight.  In response, Martijn de Jong from Overeem's team expressed his belief that Fedor deserves a shot at this Strikeforce title, and that they look forward to a potential fight.

#1.  If anyone deserves a shot at that Strikeforce heavyweight belt it's Fedor Emelianenko.

#2.  I think it's pretty retarded that M-1 has come out with this now.  I mean how long have we been talking about this Emelienenko/Overeem match up?  Also, if the fight takes place in North America(as it should) there will be some type of drug testing.
