Fabricio Werdum Says Strikeforce Wants Him To Fight Alistair Overeem

Fabricio Werdum will likely be stepping into the Strikeforce cage early in 2011 following an injury that has had him on the shelf since he bested Fedor Emelianenko earlier this year and when he does return it has been up in the air as to who, where, and what company he will be fighting for but according to Werdum, his US employers would like to see him fight Alistair Overeem for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Title:

“I beat Fedor my last fight. After that, I gained a lot more recognition. Strikeforce really wants me to face Alistair Overeem. I'll fight him, but I feel that now I'll be more appreciated, that's how it is in MMA. They also want a rematch with Fedor. If Fedor gave me a chance already, why wouldn't he give me one now? I feel it's fair. If they pay for it, I see no problem.”
