Valentijn Overeem injured, Strikeforce debut nixed

by Ken Pishna | source:

Less than a week after losing the novelty of former NFL great Herschel Walker’s second bout in the cage, Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu 2 has suffered another blow.

Valentijn Overeem, brother of Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, is injured and will be unable to fight Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva as planned on the Dec. 4 fight card on Showtime, said sources. The nature of the injury was not disclosed.

The bout was to be Valentijn’s Strikeforce debut. He is currently on a two-fight winning streak, and was expected to be a strong addition to the promotion’s heavyweight class.

Geeze people, since when is Alistair Overeem scheduled to make his Strikeforce debut? Read past the first three words and stop making a big deal about it.

Lame ass headline by omitting the first name. Very misleading (and most likely intentional).

Hopefully they find a replacement, that hurts this card

Sergei is fighting in K1 a week later so I doubt he'd be up for a MMA fight on short notice.

It's his official facebook page, confirmed check M-1's website. Fedor himself probably isn't the one typing the stuff though.
