Coker: Overeem requested rematch with Werdum

source: sherdog.com
 

"Alistair Overeem asked for and received what could be a difficult first-round matchup in Strikeforce’s heavyweight tournament: a rematch against Fabricio Werdum, who submitted him in May 2006.  “Alistair asked for Fabricio, personally,” Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said Wednesday on the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “When I was in Japan last week, he said, ‘You’ve got to let me fight Fabricio. I want to avenge that loss. It’s important.’ So that was an easy fight to put together. Werdum says he’s going to make Alistair go to sleep.”

This. I'll admit, I thought it was serious. After years of reading these forums, finally getting an account and seeing the influx of TUF noobs and the "bad" 10'ers, I just find it becoming harder to pick up on the obvious sarcasm from those who are legitimately serious.With that said, I'm owning up to my mistake if it was sarcasm and I publicly apologize to InvisibleControl for calling him out. I know when I'm wrong.

Ive seen quite a few people make the very same arguments regarding the first part of his post. Years ago it would have been obvious sarcasm on this site, now it seems more like the average post.

I must not have read the last paragraph of invisiblecontrol's post if I took it seriously. Im normally much better at catching sarcasm.

That feel when Americans miss completely obvious sarcasm and start being aggressively fat near poor InvisibleControl.
