Overeem to defend Strikeforce title vs. Werdum
Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem will make his return to the promotion in a title defense against Fabricio Werdum on August 15 at Strikeforce "Carano vs Cyborg" in San Jose, California.
Overeem (29-11) has previously lost to Werdum via kimura submission at PRIDE "Total Elimination Absolute" in May 2006.
"I’m very happy that I’m being given the opportunity to fight him again
and I’m looking forward to beating him," Overeem said. "This is the one rematch I’ve wanted. I’m
going to punish this guy."
