"Alistair asked for Fabricio, personally. When I was in Japan last week, he said, ‘You’ve got to let me fight Fabricio. I want to avenge that loss. It’s important.’ So that was an easy fight to put together. Werdum says he’s going to make Alistair go to sleep."
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker made perhaps the easiest match-up in the promotion's upcoming heavyweight tournament when he booked Alistair Overeem vs. Fabricio Werdum in the quarterfinal bracket. Will "Demolition Man" avenge his PRIDE FC loss to "Vai Cavalo?" Or go to sleep trying to make it happen?
