It now looks like Overeem’s only chance to fight Mirko Cro Cop this year will be in the Croatians basement. In yesterdays press conference for Fields Dynamite FEG executive Sadaharu Tanigawa made if official that Mirko Cro Cop would not be fighting Alistair Overeem.
"Alistair is begging for this fight but this fight will not go ahead on New Years Eve at Fields Dynamite. We will look to match them up on a different card."
Mirko Cro Cop is a huge star in Japan and this match-up clearly doesn’t interest the Japanese public at moment. I’m sure FEG will match him with a bigger name. As for Overeem a rubber match with Sergei Kharitonov looks likely.
