After winning over Fabricio Werdum at the Strikeforce's Heavyweight Grand Prix quarter final, Alistair Overeem was removed to the semifinal match.
Alistair Overeem said on MMA Hour that he may not be able to compete at the Strikeforce World Grand Prix semifinals this September. It is due to lack of preparation, following his vacation to nurse his injuries after he won over Fabricio Werdum for the Strikeforce World Grand Prix quarter finals. The announcement was made on Monday afternoon. However, UFC President – Dana White, who is a Zuffa co-owner – oversees the Strikeforce brand’s announcement that Alistair Overeem is out of the match.
But while other people said that it might be the end of his Strikeforce career, Dana White cleared that he is still employed to the company. Alistair Overeem also discussed the possibility of entering a boxing career in the near future to face one of the world champion, Klitschko brothers. Meanwhile, his return for MMA or boxing is still unknown, though he has a non-exclusive MMA deal that gives him the opportunity to fight overseas.
On the other hand, Daniel Cormier – who have a career stats of 8-0 – will replace him to face Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. The other semifinal match is between Sergei Kharitonov vs Josh Barnett.View Article Source »
