Strikeforce Carano-Cyborg Card Down One Title Fight

Nate DoubleAnalyst IJuly 21, 2009

Alistair Overeem will apparently be unable to defend his Strikeforce Heavyweight belt against Fabricio Werdum on Aug. 15.

Alistair cites complication with a hand injury sustained during a bar fight as the reason he'll be unable to defend his title.

While this is certainly a sad turn of events, the card is still packed with great fighters and title fights.
