Scott Coker Isn’t Sure If Alistair Overeem Will Fight For Strikeforce Again

MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani caught up with Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker to talk about this weekend’s “Fedor vs. Henderson” card, Gina Carano’s status and the K-1 sale. However, the biggest takeaway from the interview was his comments on Alistair Overeem. He’s pretty much sticking with Dana White’s story (the toe injury), but unlike Dana, he didn’t sound as sure about Overeem’s future in the organization. When asked if Alistair Overeem would fight for Strikeforce again, Coker simply said that’s something he’ll have to sit down with Overeem’s manager, Bas Boon, and discuss.
