That according to Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker in the upcoming Heavyweight tournament. "Alistair asked for Fabricio, personally. When I was in Japan last week, he said, ‘You’ve got to let me fight Fabricio. I want to avenge that loss. It’s important.’ So that was an easy fight to put together. Werdum says he’s going to make Alistair go to sleep."

I like Werdum a lot, but I don't know if he can hang on the feet long enough with Overeem to get it to the ground. God, I hope he does though.

Hope Werdum takes it to Overeem....will be one of Strikeforce's best event in awhile easily.

Reigning K1 champion against reigning ADCC champion in an MMA match, hmmm ? I think Overeem wins the rematch, he's gotten pretty tough to take down and I don't think he'll chase Werdum to the ground, I think Barnett and Fedor are the best bets to beat Overeem.

Only way this fight hits the ground is if Overeem wants it to. Werdum will get stuck striking and more then likely knocked out.

The Reem will smash Werdum. It will be like the fedor vs werdum fight but werdum will not be concision when he falls to his back.

Ditto. I think this is Overeem's to lose.

It's hard to imagine the incredible hulk getting taken down and submitted but if Werdum can do it props to him (Y)

First he has to get it to the ground, which he could barely do in their first fight.

I like Werdum but Overeem is going to finish what he started imo.
