"Cain Velasquez is No. 1 now because I haven't competed against the names. So there is that argument, that I haven't fought the caliber opponents I should -- I wanted to, but either they wouldn't fight me, or the schedule didn't work out. But that's what this tournament is about."
Count Alistair Overeem among the many fans that have UFC Heavyweight Champion Cain Velasquez ranked as the number one fighter in their respective weight class. "The Reem" admits he hasn't exactly been "Demolishing" the big names and that's the only reason he's not at the top of the food chain. Expect that to change by the end of the year, as Overeem plans to "Uber-knee" his way to winning the upcoming Strikeforce Heavyweight Tournament. Let's say the Dutch kickboxer does exactly what he says he will; is that enough to surpass Velasquez as the number one heavyweight in the world? Or does he need to make his way to the UFC to cement his place in the pecking order? Get after it, Maniacs.
