Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum might fight at UFC 213. They’ve fought before. Twice, actually. Back in PRIDE FC, in 2006, Werdum tapped Overeem out. Then, in Strikeforce back in 2011, Overeem took the decision. It is now 2011, and these guys have evolved (and, in some instances, devolved) so much that it’s impossible to predict how this fight will go.
Will Overeem get a hernia climbing into the cage? Will Werdum break his hip? Who knows!
Here’s MMAFighting with the scoop:
A trilogy fight is in the works for UFC 213.
A matchup between former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum and former Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem is in the works for the July 8 event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. MMAFighting.com confirmed an initial report Wednesday by FloCombat.
Overeem (42-15, 1 NC) enters the proposed bout the winner of five out of his past six fights, four of them via knockout. His only loss in that stretch was a first-round loss to current UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic at UFC 203.
Werdum (21-6-1), meanwhile, also has just a loss to Miocic marring his recent run. Werdum has won seven out of his past eight, with a unanimous decision over Travis Browne in his last fight.
