Will this fight be for the WAMMA title? They could sell it as such, have Overeem vs Werdum for the Strikeforce title on the same card, and begin to hype a future "unification match" between the victors.
Aside from DREAM, I do not believe that Strikeforce will choose to recognize titles other than their own on their broadcast, but who knows?
^just trying to come up with some way that it makes sense for Fedor to face anyone besides the champion, and even moreso, for anyone other than Fedor to be fightng for the Strikeforce title. Coker's desire to build towards Fedor vs Overeem will most likely work out just fine, but could pay off as well as UFC's attempt to build CroCop before throwing him in a title fight. The potential for another wild upset like Rogers had over Arlovski is the only thing that makes this match mildly interesting.
Given the new Strikeforce HW landscape, if Fedor vs Overeem is going to be down the road, Rogers should have been given the shot at Overeem after his win over Arlovski, and Fedor given Werdum for his 1st fight. Werdum was previously scheduled to have his title shot against Overeem before the Fedor siging, so this is only fair to him, but it still defies logic and proper matchmaking for Fedor not to be paired against Overeem, or at least the higher-than-Rogers ranked Werdum.
