    From Head Kick Legend (via MixFight.nl):

    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.

    Alistair Overeem's size has grew massively over the years since his days at light heavyweight, and naturally, it prompted unfounded steroid talk among the fans around the web. It is interesting to note though, that while M-1 seem hesitant here, they were more than willing to face Barnett who already had a documented history with steroids, although that and the cancellation of Affliction 3 could have also played a part in their decision.

    According to M-1 officials, Fedor has Werdum up next this May, but a potential title fight against Overeem is still tentatively planned to happen in 2010. So I guess we'll have to wait and see if Mayweather/Pacquiao-like issues arise in trying to set up this match up. In the meantime, what's next for Alistair? Well Head Kick Legend has mentioned rumors of him participating in a K-1 Yokohama event, or in a Strikeforce bout against Brett Rogers.
