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

Quote:
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.

MMA: Paul Daley, Gegard Mousasi, Jon Jones, KZ, Jose Aldo, Sakuraba.

K-1: Gohkan Saki, Badr Hari, Buakaw Por. Pramuk.

Yeah, in that fight Lesnar took Cain down and Cain got up. From there it was all Cain. A stand-up is not the same as getting up!

Because he gets caught up in the dream or because the dream smashes him in the face?

Because when Kyotaro beats the **** out of him he will have a dream that he can compete with top tier kick boxers while his body is motionless in the ring.

Ok, now I get it. I always wondered what happens to the human brain when someone gets knocked out. It is possible they go through some hallucination!
