Alistair Overeem: With my record and belts I could get a shot at the UFC TitlePosted on September 6, 2011, 11:58 AM by Joey Santosus
Former Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem, who was last seen taking a unanimous decision over Fabricio Werdum, discusses his fighting future, as well as a possible move to Los Angeles, California. Overeem explains that he and the UFC are "talking," but declines to provide details of their negotiations. If indeed signed by the promotion, "The Reem" says that with his record and belts, he could be up for a title shot.
"(The UFC and I) are talking. There's an exclusive negotiation period, so basically I can't talk about it. But, yea we're talking... I think with my record and my belts, I could be eligible for a title fight, but maybe it would be better to fight somebody else first. I think that's a good question, but we're just going to have to wait and see how things work out. There's nothing yet, we're talking and the mood is good."
