Antonio 'Bigfoot' Silva training for Alistair Overeem, waiting for Strikeforce confirmation

"I know what you already know. Strikeforce hasn't been in touch with my manager Alex Davis yet to make the fight 100-percent confirmed. Anyway, I'm already training for it."

Antonio Silva today tells MMAmania.com that he may indeed face Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem later this year. The former American Top Team (ATT) athlete made it clear that the promotion has yet to confirm the potential match-up, but that hasn't stopped "Bigfoot" from getting a leg up inside the gym. With Fedor still under negotiations and Werdum sidelined until 2011, is this the only heavyweight match-up Strikeforce has left? And do you give the Brazilian a fighting chance against "Demolition Man?"
