Strikeforce - St. Louis

Alistair Overeem will make his return to the United States this weekend when he takes on Brett Rogers at Strikeforce - Heavy Artillery in St. Louis. Overeem has been very busy lately, taking multiple oversees MMA fights and K-1 bouts.

The last time Overeem was fighting in the US, he was beating up Paul Buentello to defend his Strikeforce title. Overeem's only other United States fight was decision victory over Vitor Belfort. Overeem's other career wins have come over Igor Vovchanchyn, Mark Hunt, Roman Zentsov and Sergei Kharitonov.
