UFC heavyweight Shane Carwin has been out of action since his loss to Junior dos Santos at UFC 131, but he is a regular poster on The Underground. Today, he had something very interesting to say in regards to another top heavyweight, former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem. Here's what he said:

I had a chance to speak with him (Overeem) at the Magic Convention in Las Vegas (no we were not the big and tall models) and he said that he and Dana were close to a deal and he would likely be in the UFC before 2012. I think he would make a great addition to the roster.

I think any of the three would have beaten Overeem, after the way he looked against Werdum.

He was being cautious against Werdum and for good reason. People also think Anderson was not being aggressive enough against Leitas but he had to stay standing to stay safe.

I think Alistair would have beaten all three with his strength differential.

Whether the Reem can live up to the hype or not I am excited for this, whether you think he is legit or over rated there are some pretty amazing matchups we could be treated to if they can come to a deal. Fingers crossed that it happens but I won't believe it until its signed.
