Demolition camp: You will see Alistair Overeem in Strikeforce in 2010

Props: MMAWeekly


"We’ll be seeing him (in Strikeforce) next year, 100 percent. Whatever they want, if they want to put Alistair against Fedor, it’s fine, depending on how we can make good terms. Obviously, if it was a build-up, there were the first two fights if (Alistair) would win, and then he would go for a bigger fight and the money would be better, but if Fedor challenges him for the title, (Alistair) still has the title and he wants to defend it, it’s not a problem. Then the fight is on. I can tell you one thing, man, Alistair's going to be ready. He's going to (expletive) Fedor up."

Bas Boon, manager for Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion Alistair Overeem, insists his star pupil will indeed return to the United States to defend the title he's held hostage for almost two years. There has been speculation that "Demolition Man" was hiding out in the far East to escape stateside drug testing -- and the heavy hands of Brett Rogers. Will Overeem return as promised? Or have we seen the last of the Dutch behemoth on US soil?
