    Overeem says Cain is #1, M1 is ducking him in GP, and UFC better pay up if they want


    On Cain Velasquez, says he's #1..

    I agree that Cain Velasquez holds the number one position; he had a very good year and beat the champion in very impressive fashion. Now Cain is sidelined for the rest of the year and having the Strikeforce GP tournament in 2011 there is enough room to take that number one spot. The winner of the GP should be number one in the rankings because I still believe Strikeforce has the best heavyweight division in the world.

    on M-1, Says they are already looking for excuses


    Yes, sure a fight with Fedor is something I wanted for a long time but most important is that the fans want to see that fight. The only concern I have with M-1 is that the way they do business, they are very unpredictable and always find a way to hostage Strikeforce/Showtime to delay a fight or demand some crazy stuff. I dont like it when people are trying to use boxing strategic to set up fights, we all know how boxing is doing popularity wise and the reason is that management is getting involved with promoting. So having a company co-promoting a show where there fighter will be main event is asking for problems. When they announced the tournament and told the contracts were signed I was very proud Strikeforce set up a great tournament like that but now hearing Vadim telling the media that there needs to be extra testing then Im thinking; here we go again. The commission in the USA test fighters and now all of a sudden hes demanding extra testing, I never heard Vadim asking this when Fedor was fighting in Japan and even on his own M-1 shows they dont test at all! So my guess is that they are looking for excuses already.


    Not impressed with Fedors recent performances



    Do you expect Fedor to win his bout against Antonio Silva and if he lost would you be disappointed at another missed opportunity to face him?


    I expect Fedor to win (vs Silva) but it would be very interesting to see how Fedor is going to do. His last two fights werent very impressive; he had troubles against Rogers and lost to Werdum. This fight will show if Fedor has grown just like the sport has evolved. You have to understand that if you are not fighting that often, the level of fighting will grow without you anyways. Look at most ex-Pride stars are doing, not very well if you ask me. So I will not be surprised if Silva wins. I rather like to fight Fedor over Silva because its a fight everybody is waiting for but if Silva manages to win then he should be in the semi finals.


    On future with single promotion UFC

    "If a promotion wants exclusivity then they should bring a lot of money with them because Im very happy that I can perform in two combat sports and doing very well in both of them."

    V whats your opinion on the statement: The winner of the GP should be number one in the rankings because I still believe Strikeforce has the best heavyweight division in the world.

    I tend to agree, primarily because Cain will be sitting out for almost a year.

    Ok the first half (to be number 1 in rankings) I'd agree with or least give #2 ranking. The second half... mmmm I'd say the sentence is incomplete. Strikeforce has some of the best heavyweights in the world.

    I agree about SF only having "some" of the best HW's as well.

    Cain was at Strikeforce last night. Cain talking about SF and now showing up to their venue. Such strange goings on... Looks like someone wants in on the grand prix!!
