Alistair Overeem says tournament a great way to prove he’s the best fighter in the world

“I have been looking for a big fight for more than a year now… Tournament or no tournament, Werdum was going to be my first fight in Strikeforce… All the fighters in that tournament are good, so there are no easy fights. I’m a little surprised about [the bracket set up], and I don’t know why this bracket is designed this way, but my job is to fight. I’m not picking opponents, so if that’s the way they made the bracket, so be it. I can show the American fans that I’m the No. 1 fighter of Strikeforce. Entering such a tournament is not only great for the MMA fans but also a great way to prove that I’m the best fighter in the world.”

-Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem talks about the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix and getting a chance to prove his place in the heavyweight division.

I believe he is the best heavywieght in Strikeforce. I think Fedor evens knows it. Fedor and his Manager said the had no interest in fighting Overeem. I thought Whaaaaaatttt? Why would you not want to fight the person who has the belt.

Post your comments and let me know who you think the best heavywieght in Strikeforce is.
