Representin' The MA's
Despite reports to the contrary, Brazilian heavyweight Antonio Silva has not yet been formally offered a fight with Golden Glory's Valentijn Overeem. But he's got an answer prepared if the call does come: Yes. Silva's manager Alex Davis today said that Strikeforce has yet to present a potential fight with Overeem for a Dec. 4 event in Missouri, but if the offer comes, his client is game. Overeem's brother, Alistair Overeem, posted news of the potential matchup on his official Twitter account on Friday. But Overeem's words made it seem the contest was official. "My brother Valentijn is fighting Antonio Silva on Dec. 4 for his Strikeforce debut," Alistair stated. "Great news." But Davis insists Silva has yet to receive word of Strikeforce's plans for the yet-to-be-announced "Henderson vs. Babalu" event.
