Overeem vs Thompson

http://mmamania.com/2009/10/19/repor...-for-dream-12/

"Strikeforce heavyweight champion (cough) Alistair Overeem (30-11) will make his previously scheduled appearance at DREAM 12 on Oct. 25 against former PRIDE heavyweight bruiser James Thompson (14-10), according to MMA Fanhouse.

Yes, the same James Thompson who was stopped by Kimbo Slice at Elite XC: “Prime Time” in 2008 and yes, the same James Thompson who’s dropped four straight and eight of his last ten.

Looks like another quick pit-stop on the Overeem World Tour. Pull the bus over, recycle a few cans, continue heading East.

Rinse and repeat.

Following a hand injury that booted him from two summer events, Strikeforce officials informed MMAmania.com last month that “Demolition Man” was expected to make separate appearances outside of the San Jose-based promotion prior to defending his belt.

One of those stints involved a trip to the K-1 World Grand Prix 2009, the other was for Golden Glory in his native Amsterdam, where he bulldozed the hapless Tony Sylvester on Oct. 17.

Following his bout with “The Colossus,” as well as the remaining fights in K-1, Overeem is expected to return to Strikeforce to defend his heavyweight title (cough).

And with Brett Rogers, Fabricio Werdum and Fedor Emelianenko all gunning for first dibs, don’t expect him to receive a very warm welcome."


Jesus, this is getting old, fight someone worth a shit Overeem.

I really think we should start a thread to see who can pick the next excuse that Overeem is going to use to avoid fighting in the US.
Alistair obviously has no interest in fighting any real competition in a fair fighting environment or he would have already had a few fights in Strikeforce or UFC. How long would it take him to flush his system to clear for a fight in the US anyways?

Overeem is really the Barry Bonds of MMA...

He puts on about 130lbs of muscle in about 1 year and starts to vastly improve his performances and none of the important people are asking the right questions.. Just us internet nerds.

HERE IS THE BEGININNG OF THE MOVEMENT TO PLACE AN ASTERIKS NEXT TO OVEREEMS STRIKEFORCE TITLE!!!!

Obviously I was exaggerating. But seriously, watch his fights agains Shogun and Liddell, and look at s fights now... The guy put on some serious, serious muscle mass.
