It didn't take long for Strikeforce to make up their mind regarding Alistair Overeem. Hours after he mentioned that he would not fight on September 10th and Zuffa had threatened him with removal from the Grand Prix, it came to fruition. Tatame first reported that Overeem was out and Daniel Cormier was in to take on Antonio Silva on September 10th:

Alistair Overeem, the Strikeforce heavyweight champion, defeated Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce GP’s first round, but he’s no longer fighting at the tournament.

Hopefully this is as far as it goes. It wouldn't be good if Zuffa holds a grudge.

Dana stated that Overeem is still with Zuffa and will fight again once his little toe heals.

Yea, I should've read the article before I posted. Pretty clear this has nothing to do with Zuffa being sour. Just another injured fighter to add on to a long list.

IMO, that would make the most sense.

Edit: Pretty big step up in competition for Cormier. Even though he looked good against Monson, who definately isn't a pushover, i'm sure the odds will be stacked heavily in bigfoots favor. I'll for sure be picking Silva.

Looking at his resume, I highly doubt it.

No.

He accepted the fight, just not the date of the fight.

NO! Dudes a beast.
Any chance the UFC (and Dana) want to pull him to somehow add him to a UFC card in the near future?????

No. He just wants the proper time to train. The problem is he originally agreed on fighting in October, but now they want him to fight in September, and he won't be able to have a solid training camp in time, unlike Silva.
