MMA Quick Quote: Brett Rogers wants Alistair Overeem to defend the Strikeforce belt -- or surrender it

"I don't know what's been going on with [Overeem], he's kinda been hesitatin' on everybody. He's always complainin' about something ain't right, his hand is hurtin' and things like that. If I was anybody I would try to go in deep on why his hand is hurtin' and why everything else is hurtin' because maybe it might not just be hurt, it could be something else. I don't know, I ain't the one to say or start nothin' but he's definitely gonna have to give up that belt here real, real soon because I'm in it to win it, I want that belt. If you're a title holder, I'm sorry man but you should be fighting at least a couple of times a year. No excuses. If you can't get the job done then give it up. One, I say he's ducking me. He knows I'm gonna get him. I could care less who he is. Two, I don't think he can fight in the states right now. I don't think you can get that big in such a small amount of time. I don't know, who knows."

-- Strikeforce heavyweight wrecking ball Brett Rogers sounds off on Pro MMA Radio regarding the convoluted title picture in the Strikeforce 265 lb. division. While "The Grim" is frustrated that Alistair Overeem is holding the championship hostage while he dabbles in the Japanese kickboxing scene, he must first overcome "The Last Emperor" on Nov. 7 when he faces Fedor Emelianenko live on CBS. Is Rogers heir to the throne? Or will the WAMMA Heavyweight Champion make his complaints towards "Demolition Man" a moot point? We'll find out soon enough. For the complete interview click here.
