Alistair Overeem-Josh Barnett Interested In Finally Fighting It Out

During a recent appearance on Submission Radio, Overeem stated that he would like to return to the Octagon against either Mark Hunt or Barnett. Overeem, a former Strikeforce champion, is coming off a recent victory over Frank Mir that snapped a two-fight losing skid.

“I believe Josh is ranked one place better than me,” Overeem said. “I also think the fight with Josh would be nice considering his long Japanese history, as well as mine.”
Barnett, himself coming off a knockout loss to Travis Browne, was asked about the potential fight on Twitter and replied with “Sweet.”
