Fabricio Werdum: Strikeforce want me to fight Alistair OvereemPosted on November 27, 2010, 09:15 AM by Anton Gurevich
"I beat Fedor my last fight. After that, I gained a lot more recognition. Strikeforce really wants me to face Alistair Overeem. I'll fight him, but I feel that now I'll be more appreciated, that's how it is in MMA. They also want a rematch with Fedor. If Fedor gave me a chance already, why wouldn't he give me one now? I feel it's fair. If they pay for it, I see no problem." - Graciemag
Both Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum are planning to make their return to Strikeforce (Overeem may fight at Dynamite!! 2010) sometime this Spring, leaving "The Last Emperor" Fedor Emelianenko seeking for another opponent. Werdum only recently returned to training from his elbow injury, as Alistair Overeem will participate in the K-1 2010 WGP Final in Japan on December 11th. The two met back in 2006, when Fabricio Werdum submitted Alistair Overeem via Kimura in Round 2.
