Fedor vs. Overeem not happening any time soon

I know there are some hints about Fedor working the DREAM 13 show on 3/22 at Yokohama Arena. Unlikely, but who knows? DREAM vs. Strikeforce as an interpromotional feud starts at that event.

Any chance of Fedor vs. Overeem happening in April vanished on Friday when K-1 announced that Overeem would fight on their 4/3 Yokohama Arena card. There will be a K-1 heavyweight title match between Kyotaro and Peter Aerts on the show. Also listed to be booked is Semmy Schilt, Badr Hari, Remy Bonjasky, Jerome Le Banner, Errol Zimmerman, Ruslan Karaev, and Melvin Manhoef. Musashi will have a retirement ceremony at the show.

Regarding the possibility of Fedor in DREAM… the promotion will have a show in South Korea in April, a country where both Fedor and Bob Sapp are very popular. The event date is open, should DREAM want to book him.

Denis Kang is booked for the J-ROCK MMA show on 4/25 in Tokyo at Nippon Budokan (Yoshida’s retirement event). Booked on the show is Yuya Shirai (DEEP Welterweight champion) vs. Che Mills (listed as M-1 Global representative for Team Trojan).
