So apparently Lashley isn't fighting Overeem. Not due to the lack of preparation time, but due to the money offered. Or that is what has been reported. http://www.wrestlezone.com/news/arti...-update-119227

The rumors that Bobby Lashley would fight Strikeforce World Champion Alistair Overeem on New Years Eve in Japan for the Dream promotion have turned out to be just that.

Rumors.

Overeem's camp accepted the fight, but Lashley's camp asked for an amount Dream was not going to spend, and the fight is officially considered "off."

There have been many rumors on who would be Overeem's opponent for this year's Dynamite!!! card, from Satoshi Ishii to recently cut UFC rookie Todd Duffee.

Lashley was last seen in a Strikeforce cage against Chad Griggs, in a lopsided fight which saw Lashley get bloodied and beaten, much like Brock Lesnar against Cain Velasquez.

There have been reports that Lashley's team turned down the fight because there wasn't enough time to prepare, but WrestleZone has confirmed his management team "priced Lashley out of the market," according to one person involved in the negotiations.

The latest rumor out of Japan is that Dream is trying to sign Semmy Schlit to fight Overeem on the New Years Eve show. No word on Lashley's next fight, although the rumors that Strikeforce President Scott Coker wants to sign Lashley vs Batista continue to persist.
