When heavyweights Alistair Overeem and Todd Duffee clash at Friday’s Dynamite!! 2010 event in Saitama, Japan, DREAM’s interim heavyweight title will be on the line, the promotion announced today to end weeks of speculation on the fight.
Despite Duffee not officially becoming his opponent until Wednesday, Overeem pressed DREAM into making the title fight and the Strikeforce and K-1 champ got his wish and now has a chance to add another belt to his collection before the end of 2010.
To face Overeem, Duffee was forced off Titan FC 16 on Jan. 28 in Kansas City against TUF 10’s Abe Wagner, but has been replaced by former UFC champ Tim Sylvia.
