Contrary to confusion, Strikeforce does have a Heavyweight Champion and it’s not a chubby little man from Russia. On November 2007, Alistar Overeem became the undisputed Strikeforce heavyweight champion by defeating Paul Buentello with a series of knees that ultimately led to a submission due to strikes. After that evening, The “Demolition Man” flew back to Holland, put his belt onto a mantle, began a strict diet of horse meat and rawesomeade. After 36 months, the man formerly recognized as Alistar Overeem has transformed into the real-life hybrid Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, otherwise known as Ubereem.
Some of you Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’s geeks are convinced Ubereem found the last canister of mutagen, the rest of you are quick to point to anabolic steroids. Whatever you think has kept the Strikeforce champion from competing under drug-tested circumstances in the past 2 years, Ubereem has a message for you:
“People will always speculate” says Overeem, “I will be tested just like anybody else and like I’ve said before I weighed 235lbs in no time when I did not have to cut weight. Gaining 10lbs a year by lifting weights isn’t a big problem. Before I would cut between 22lbs-26lbs to get to the 205lbs weight limit. It was crazy. Now that I can eat and do not have to cut anymore (with his move to heavyweight division) it was easy to put on the extra muscle weight. I feel great.”
“People are just jealous.”
“I don’t see or hear any of these types of accusations towards Brock Lesnar yet he is even bigger than I am. They can test me all they want. I’ll be in the states soon and I will prove everyone wrong.”
Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery is just under 2 weeks away, and the athletic commission is ready to pounce on the opportunity to deny Ubereem a license to compete if he doesn’t produce cleaner test results than a “You are NOT the father” declaration on Maury. Strikeforce fans everywhere are hoping it doesn’t come to that and as long as the commission doesn’t test for horse meat, it shouldn’t be a factor. [Source]
