As far as the UFC is concerned, have you heard DW or any one else in the UFC discuss Overeem as a targeted signing for their roster. I may have missed something but to my knowledge they have not. Even if he were to fight in the states and "run" from Fedor to the UFC, he is in for a rude awakening. The HW's in the UFC are certainly not cans and with skills beyond Overeem's kickboxing. Like someone said earlier, its MMA not K1. I am certainly not saying that he would get destroyed by everyone, however he would certainly have a rough road to ever challenge for the belt.
1, and 2 for the bold spots.

1 The point they haven't means I'm right sadly.

Strike Force could have easily, stripped him of the belt quitely before they started getting more exposure.

He's been mentioned a now a couple times off and on air.. and Strike Force has given someone they shouldn't have exposure. He has Strike Force by the balls.

2 Dana White never really mentioned he was all that interested in Denis Hallman or Phil Baroni, and yet he picked them up just to despite Strike Force. Deny it?

Why the **** would he pick up Denis Hallman if for no other reason to try and hinder Strike Force. If Dana's that bitter clearly that makes the demolition man a prime candidate.

I think Overheem would have a good chance of beating Fador, good enough to take the chance, Overheems stand up game is one of the best in MMA and his work in the clinch could be used to dominate and control and hurt Fador, who I believe is going to loose to someone soon.

I think Rogers could beat Fador in a re-match, I thought that fight was stopped early, and think Fador was very lucky to make in through the first round.

Im pretty sure this forum is for discussing MMA. not cracking jokes

I understand that Overeem has looked a like monster the in the past 18 months, but you gotta put him in the back end of the top 10, I mean how many serious guys has he beaten. I cannot see 1 top 15 heavyweight that he has beaten.

I think it is very interesting that all his fights (since winning the SF title)have been in either Holland or Japan...not exactly places known for their steroid testing.
I mean a year before this streak he lost 3 in a row at 205(giving him some motivation to use steroids).
