Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem is struggling with complications from a hand injury sustained in a bar brawl and may not be able to defend his title against Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce “Carano vs. Cyborg” on Aug. 15.

Multiple sources who asked not to be named reported the news to MMAWeekly.com on Monday evening and Tuesday morning.

One source indicated that it was highly unlikely that Overeem would be physically ready to fight on Aug. 15.

LOL

Seriously, though... people accuse other fighters of ducking when they've got an injury. Varner is a recent example. Or when Crocop got kneed in the nuts by Overeem he was accused of ducking Overeem for months thereafter. It just blows my mind
