Im sure whatever can they had lined up for him will be very disappointed if that fight is off. Even if your a big Reem fan, you gotta admit almost all of his fights outside of Strikeforce in the last few years have been against walking punching bags.

At least he has done everything to them expected from an elite fighter. Finished them early and convincingly.

His resume has gotten better though, Werdum was a huge victory and although Duffee wasn't ranked he was still a good fighter.

I enjoy watching the guy fight. I like that he has tried to stay active and I do think he is a legit top five talent. I was just stating a fact about him fighting a lot of cans since 08.

The reem is not fighting in oct no more as his rib injury was far worse then he thought. He thought it was brused but it was broken so needs more time to rest it. (this injury is the main reason he is not fighting in the grand prix not the broken toe people dwel on)

this is all just a parade been put on for show from the UFC, the Reem already has a deal with the UFC they just need to put on this show of deception in order to break him out of his Strikeforce contact to save backlash from Showtime.

I wrote something about this in another topic and its panning out exactly how I predicted, the Reem has done some back hand deal with Zuffa that has screwed his team mates out of contracts, the guy is a back stabbing cockroach and I hope he gets palsied in a car crash for his trouble.

Here is a link to the topic that wrote what I though was going on before

you a such an asshole, you want alistair to be severely injured in a car accident because you have an unusual and stupid grievance with the UFC, if you really dont enjoy the ufc and people who want to fight for them then by all means support bamma and their c list fighters, at the end of the day everyone wants to fight to be the best and the best is in the ufc, otherwise they end up as overrated fighters like fedor. geez you dont have to be so angry towards a company for no reason

Wanting a guy to get injured in a car crash merely because of your own conspiracy is a bit uncalled for don't you think?

I always wondered why Showtime wouldn't budge with the fight schedule when Overeem is probably the biggest drawer for their show. Wouldn't they want to maximize the eyes they were going to get for their not so much longer run with mma. If i was Showtime i would have let Overeem heal and then pack the fight card with an incredible amount of advertisement to maximize their financial gain. Then when this tourny is over they are probably going to be done with SF since i guarantee the UFC is going to close SF soon.

No I just hate the way they do business, the only thing I was interested in seeing the Reem do this year was to see if he could win the GP, but no once Zuffa had there dirty hands in control of the situation, he is pulled from the GP and I garuntee that every excuse about injury and contract issues with the GG team are all complete bullshit, even the documentary released before he was cut that documented his alleged injuries all faked as part of the scam Zuffa is pulling to get him into the UFC in the name of PPV sales.

They just want him now while the hype is so high, they not willing to risk him been beat in the GP at the cost of what it would cost them in PPV sales to bring across a guy that did not win that event.

Its all just playing out a little to convenient to get the Reem out of Showtime/STrikeforce and into the UFC, its just all working out way to well in favor of the UFC for this not to be all staged, and if this is true the Reem has to be in on it, which means he is been paid off big time to play along and screw his team mates over in the process.

So fuk the Reem, I was a fan but you are nothing more than a back stabbing greedy b@stard, I would wish death on you but I want to live to feel the retribution I wish on you, so been made to live out the rest of your days in a wheelchair been fed through a pipe is more fitting.
