Josh Barnett could be a possible opponent for Alistair Ovreem!!!

Quote:
According to Tanikawa, FEG’s promotional direction in 2011 focuses on courting new talent and strengthening its heavyweight divisions. To wit, the recent successes of Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem in the Japanese ring and media have seemingly energized Tanikawa into recommitting to push the triple-crowned Dutchman well into the New Year.

“I've committed myself to the comeback of martial arts in Japan. Right now, martial arts are a sport for hardcore fans. However, we need to attract casual fans, too. Alistair Overeem’s fights, in particular, attract the general public,” said Tanikawa. “I want Alistair Overeem to become the strongest man amongst six billion. I plan to offer him fights in both K-1 and MMA; he’s going to be very busy in 2011. Andrei Arlovski, Josh Barnett, Semmy Schilt, Badr Hari and Jerome Le Banner -- they all want to fight Alistair, and I want Alistair to crush all the challengers.”

Oh please let it be Josh Barnett!!! I'm sick of Overeem fighting cans and middle tier fighters! He needs to stop being the Great Can Crusher and fight someone that is an elite fighter!

I hope this is true but I doubt we will see half those fights. Its one thing to say you want to fight the Reem but that dude is looking pretty scary lately.

Looking forward to his MMA and K1 fights. When did Arlovski want to fight The Reem... He got KOd by Brett Rogers, what would Alistair do to him.

...Overeem may be looking indestructable as of late. An Overeem/Barnett fight would probably go one or two ways. If Barnett gets caught and hammered on right away, he will get finished and folded up into a ball against the cage. If Josh avoids any damage and turns it into a wrestling match- putting Overeem on his back, he would need to put some quick hurt on Alistair. I think that would really be Barnett's only chance to possibly win. If Josh doesn't take the fight down like pronto, he'll be taking a long while recovering on the ground from his face getting caved in...

Won't happen in Strikeforce, Barnett will really struggle to get licensed in the US. If the fight ever happens, it'll happen in DREAM.

Strange to say this but I hope Overeem doesn't join the UFC now. Too many matchups I still want to see. Arlosvki, Barnett, Fedor, Bigfoot... maybe Hershel Walker.

edit: someone didn't get the sarcasm when it comes to Hershel Walker.

Your not the only one tbh, i still want to see him go against Hari,Schilt, Fedor and Werdum. It could all happen in 2011 so UFC and The Reem-2012 all the way!
