Looks Like Bigfoot May Get To Beat Up Alastair's Little Brother In December

Valentijn Overeem vs. Antonio Silva targeted for Dec. 4; "Bigfoot" yet to receive offer
by John Morgan on Sep 24, 2010 at 4:00 pm ET
Despite reports to the contrary, Brazilian heavyweight Antonio Silva (14-2 MMA, 1-1 SF) has not yet been formally offered a fight with Golden Glory's Valentijn Overeem (28-25 MMA, 0-0 SF).

But he's got an answer prepared if the call does come: Yes.

Silva's manager Alex Davis today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Strikeforce has yet to present a potential fight with Overeem for a Dec. 4 event in Missouri, but if the offer comes, his client is game.

"Antonio isn't in the business of picking opponents," Davis said. "He'll fight anybody, anywhere, anytime. Just send the contract, and he's in."

Overeem's brother, Alistair Overeem, posted news of the potential matchup on his official Twitter account on Friday. But Overeem's words made it seem the contest was official.

"My brother Valentijn is fighting Antonio Silva on Dec. 4 for his Strikeforce debut," Alistair stated. "Great news."

But Davis insists Silva has yet to receive word of Strikeforce's plans for the yet-to-be-announced "Henderson vs. Babalu" event.

Silva had been linked to a potential fight with Fedor Emelianenko, but "The Last Emperor" is now on the sidelines until at least January. As such, Davis said Silva would be more than happy to face Overeem.

"If Strikeforce wants us to face Valentijn, then that's who we'll fight," Davis said. "Antonio is anxious to get back in action, and he'll fight regardless of who is on the other side of the cage."

Silva's most recent appearance was a May decision win over Andrei Arlovski. The former EliteXC champion has won seven of his past eight contests overall.

Meanwhile, Overeem is a four-time PRIDE veteran who has been fighting professionally since 1996. "The Python" is currently riding a two-fight win streak in which he's earned two knockout wins in just 47 seconds of total fight time.

For more on "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu," stay tuned to the MMA Rumors section of MMAjunkie.com.

If Antonio is vicious enough Alastair may come for some revenge....

Well I know Valentijn shouldn't be taken lightly either
This will be an interesting fight, can't wait...

On a side note, who has the funnier head in MMA, Silva or Ortiz? :P

I really don't think he's on Silvas level.

I'd have to say Antonios head. He doesn't have thoughts he has movies...

I do love to make fun of Tito but Bigfoots head was wrapped in rope as a child to make him more intimidating to the opposition

Valentijn is actually considerably older than alistair and almost the same size physically, not really accurate to call him alistair's little brother.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

And this is the only purpose this fight serves.

Bigfoot shouldn't overlook Valentijn, but his still taking this fight. At least it's a good set-up for the future.

Well now that Valentijn has his foot in the door with SF he might step up his game to show his brother that he's not the only one who can ragdoll people :P

Though I do agree Bigfoot is not an easy man to toss around
