Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Valentijn Overeem Off Dec. 4 Strikeforce Event

A rumored fight between heavyweight contender Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Strikeforce newcomer Valentijn Overeem won’t take place at “Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu” on December 4 in St. Louis, Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told MMAjunkie on Monday.

Silva (14-2) rebounded from a debut loss to Fabricio Werdum with a May win over Andrei Arlovski, but hasn’t fought since as he waits for another top heavyweight to become available.

Heavyweight champ Alistair Overeem is out until competing in the K-1 World Grand Prix Final in December, Fedor Emelianenko won’t return until at least January as he works to finalize a new contract, and Werdum hopes for a March return from elbow surgery.
