    Overeem out of SF tourney..and now cut from Strikeforce

    Well sh**. The Reem has been yanked from the SF HW tourney for not agreeing to a proposed date. He's still a SF fighter, but not in the tournament.


    Apparently Overeem didn't agree to a proposed Sep 10th date, for the semi-final matchup w/ Bigfoot Silva, and was threatened with removal from the tournament.

    In an incredibly thick move (IMO), Overeem has been yanked from the tourney. He will be replaced by undefeated (American Kickboxing Academy) fighter Daniel Cormier.

    Cormier has been discussed as an alternate for the tourney in the past, and will now face Bigfoot Silva, in the semi-finals.
    I won't write more, because as a fan, I'm pissed.

    Thoughts Bullies?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    EDIT:
    So now he's been axed from the entire promotion. Several other Golden Glory fighters have been let go as well. So Bullies....what gives? Who pissed of their corporate overlords at Zuffa? Reasons?
    Still liking the Zuffa upper-level-monopoly?

    Do you think this has anything to do with his interest in starting up a career in boxing?

    His foot is injured, he wanted to postpone but Showtime were adamant that the next round of the tourney take place on the 10th, this is why they wisely had alternates like Cormier in case something like this happened. Barnett has this now if he can take out silva, which admittedly is a hell of a task.
