by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com

Antonio Silva (14-2 MMA, 1-1 SF) vs. Valentijn Overeem (28-25 MMA, 0-0 SF) is back on.

A week after Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the heavily rumored bout was not taking place at "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu," a source close to the event today confirmed that the fight has been salvaged.

"Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu" takes place Dec. 4 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, and the night's main card airs on Showtime.

Sources said Silva vs. Overeem will be part of the broadcast.

I agree. However, I am genuinely excited for Lawler-Lindland for some reason.

The only decent fight on this card is Daley vs. Smith. I honestly couldn't think of a more pointless fight than Henderson vs. Babalu.

Werdum, Arlovski, and now Valentijn order of opponents makes no sense.

Whereas Dana's always telling us something other than "Just wait, what's going to happen in the next year is going to blow your mind." By that he means a new season of TUF and a Shane Carwin doll.

Man, Pride made clusterfuck last minute cards AWESOME... Strikeforce.... they "salvage" their shows.I like Strikeforce, btw. Just seems REALLY unorganized. All Cokers answers about upcoming stuff is the same shit hes been saying for like over a year. The answers never change.
