Alistair Overeem spent most of 2010 fighting in other organizations, but this year he will be committed to the Grand Prix until it is over. He is required to fight the possible three fights in the grand prix. Also Overeem will have another documentary leading up to the grand prix, similiar to the one they produced leading up to the K-1 grand prix.
"He will be committed to this tournament,Last year, just to be very clear, we have a contract with Alistair, and he came to us and his manager is a very close friend and he said ‘look we want to fight in the K-1, it’s important to Alistair’ and so it happened and we were supporting of it, but this year it’s very clear that they need to support Strikeforce, and the participation in the tournament is going to require up to three fights and they committed.There’s no way that’s going to happen (fight in another organization), this tournament’s going to be taxing on these guys and there’s a lot on the line."
