Alistair Overeem vs. Todd Duffee official for Dynamite!! 2010Posted on December 29, 2010, 05:38 PM by Joey Santosus
After much speculation, the Heavyweight bout between Strikeforce Champion Alistair Overeem and former UFC prospect Todd Duffee is now official for Dynamite!! 2010.
Dream parent company FEG made the confirmation today at a press conference in Tokyo. The match-up will serve as the main-event for the card, which takes place on New Year's Eve at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
Overeem, who is currently enjoying a nine-fight unbeaten streak, most recently defeated Brett Rogers back in May to successfully defend his Strikeforce Heavyweight title. "The Reem" has stayed busy in the months since, preparing for and eventually winning the 2010 K-1 Grand Prix, becoming the first ever champion of a major MMA promotion to simultaneously hold the coveted kickboxing crown.
Duffee's last outing also came back in May, when he suffered a dramatic knockout loss at the hands of Mike Russow in his final UFC appearance. Hoping to rebound from the upset, he steps in to face Overeem with less than two weeks notice. Duffee is also currently scheduled to face Abe Wagner on January 29th at the Titan Fighting Championships 16 in Kansas.
