Overeem on Werdum: “I’m sure, 100% sure, I’m going to beat him. It’s payback time, baby.”

Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem has made it pretty clear that when he rematches Brazilian submission sensation, Fabricio Werdum he is 100% sure that he will come out on top.

Overeem, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“Let’s just say this, there’s a couple of fights that I would like to have, and I’m going to start with the first one: the first one is going to definitely be Werdum — he’s the winner of that fight [against Fedor Emelianenko]. I’m sure, 100% sure, I’m going to beat him. It’s payback time, baby. Payback time, and it’s going to be sweet.”

“Second fight is the Fedor fight. He lost his last fight. Did he get caught? I don’t know. Has he lost it? I don’t know. But he’s still one of the guys I would love to fight. I’ve been challenging him for a year, I was hoping that I was going to be the one to beat him, but now he’s lost to Werdum. But still, I’ve been challenging him for a year, so I still want to fight him and then the third choice would be the K-1 Finals, the last fight.”

“I have qualified for the final 16. I’m not entirely sure if I’m going to compete, but I would like to compete. K-1 is striking, I like it, it has a little bit different audience. It’s very popular in Holland. So yeah, I want to become champion. I see myself as champion.”
