While it appears former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem could be in line for a UFC title shot, it doesn't seem the "Demolition Man" is necessarily willing to wait for such a fight.

So if Overeem is intent in returning as soon as his suspension ends in late December, he's got a willing opponent: Antonio Silva.

"Bigfoot," who is coming off a recent win over Travis Browne, said he's more than happy to take on the massive Overeem, even if he was "created in a lab."

So you're saying Overeem is going to be out with a fractured knee?

yeah and he will recover in time to fight JDS/Cain winner on the American Thanksgiving card 2013. Makes perfect sense

Overeem would more than likely bust Silva up pretty good and win via tko

I'd love to see this....a perfect come back for the Reem! A big guy with a suspect chin, only decent stand up, lousy take downs.....don't see Bigfoot lating more than two rounds.

Bigfoot or Overeem vs just about anyone is awesome. Bigfoot vs Overeem would be DOUBLE AWESOME!

"Created in a lab"... so Overeem must be that 'new breed' of fighter they keep talking about!

Do you think Overeem would be getting this much attention if there wasn't a Brazilian hw champ (because Brazilians don't like to fight each other).

The only thing suspicious about Silva's chin is that it's made of bone. Whatever hits that thing is going to break.

Mike Kyle, Daniel Cormier, everyone breaks their shit on Bigfoot's jaw. I would be shocked if Velasquez didn't break his hand in their fight.

Silva's statements are kind of funny though. He's pissed hot himself and looks like more of a freak than Overeem

One of the easiest matchups for the Reem. They call this a tune up. Injury doesnt mean anything when JDS routinely takes 8 months between fights.

This is great....

If UBER was created in a lab, then bigFOOT was conceived from the traveling Brazilian Circus
