MMA News: How Allistair Overeems Latest Win Brings Him Closer to the UFC Belt
Allistair Overeem's Recent Win Over Fabricio Werdum Could Mean A Lot More
Before you tell me that Overeem is part of Strikeforce and that I do not know what I am talking about, hear me out. Allistair has an amazing style that makes his fights enjoyable to watch. His kickboxing skills are the best in Strikeforce's heavyweight division. While he does have his weaknesses and critics, let me point out a few key points.
Overeem has now advanced the the semi-finals of the Grand Prix. Josh Barnett, Sergei Kharitonov, and Antonio Silva make up the rest of the field. Silva is the next man on Overeems list and will be the toughest opponent he has faced to date. Getting past Silva will be a tough test, but if Allistair can slug it out and manage to beat him he would move on to the finals. Silva will not lay down like Werdum did. He will stand toe-to-toe with Overeem in an attempt to knock him out.
I look for Josh Barnett to be in the finals against Overeem. The winner of that fight gets the belt and then it gets interesting.
Cain Velasquez fights Junior Dos Santos in November. I think that Velasquez is a dominant force and will dispose of Junior as early as the second round. Who would Cain fight next? I have the answer.
When the Strikeforce Grand Prix is over, Zuffa should try to unify the heavyweight title. Let's have the winner of the Grand Prix fight Cain Velasquez (or Junior Dos Santos, if a miracle happens). This would be an awesome, must see, main-event! If you do not like my idea that is OK. In a recent interview, Allistair Overeem suggested the same thing.
I do not think that Overeem would be a challenge for Velasquez, but it still needs to happen.
