Werdum waffles on Fedor rematch

Remember that immediate rematch Fabricio Werdum was offering Fedor? It’s not sounding so immediate any more:

Fabricio Werdum’s rematch with Fedor Emelianenko will take place – but not for at least eight months, according to a source very close to the Strikeforce heavyweight. The source told Fighters Only that Werdum does not want to rematch Fedor in what remains of 2010.

The source told us that Werdum has not ruled out taking another fight before rematching Fedor, and also said that he may be open to fighting him again in less than eight months if the right incentives were provided.

In other words, BLING BLING! WERDUM GOTSTA GET PAID! Meanwhile, Scott Coker continues to offer up several hundred non-committal possibilities for what’s next, including this gem:

“My feeling is maybe Fedor should fight Alistair Overeem and whoever wins that fight gets to fight Fabricio Werdum. I would love to see that fight too, Alistair and Fedor, I would love to see that fight happen.”

“Here’s the thing, we just saw Fedor fight Werdum; I’m not saying we couldn’t do the rematch [Fedor vs. Werdum] first but I’m saying there are a couple options on the table.”

“Until we sit down with M-1, we’re just talking about different options and that [Fedor vs. Overeem] is one of the options.”

For a portly man like Scott Coker, you’d figure he spends most of his days sitting down. So why isn’t he sitting down with M-1, CBS, Showtime, and everyone else to make some solid fricking decisions about the future of his promotion that don’t change from one interview to the next? I’ve seen roombas with a better sense of direction than Scott has been showing lately.
