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 MMAWeekly.com 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.

Overeem probably took a piss test to make sure he wouldn't piss hot and he melted the specimen cup.

Seriously, who gives a crap about Valentijn anymore? What was he doing on this card (besides be worked in as a favor to Alistair)

Shame. I was looking forward to seeing Silva fight. Hopefully Strikeforce can find a replacement. I guess at the very worst he can fight Scott Carson, the guy who was scheduled to fight Herschel Walker.

SF should put Sergei Kharitonov as a replacement. If he is in shape that is.

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

With all the bricks from the collective UG we could build a house.

Will it happen? Probably not.

Would I FUCKING LOVE IT IF IT DID? HELL YES.

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

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