Alistair Overeem did not believe he could be ready in time to face Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva at the Strikeforce HW GP semi-finals coming up this September 10.  Instead of the UFC brass giving him more time by rescheduling the event, they removed Overeem from the tournament altogether and replaced him with Daniel Comier.

This is a sticky situation because Overeem is still the Strikeforce HW champion.  And the question is:  Where does he go from here?

He mentioned that after the tournament, he could possibly try his hand at boxing and challenge the Klitschko brothers.  Or maybe he'll fight in the UFC later this year.  Right now, everything is up in the air, except for the fact that Alistair Overeem is done with the SF HW GP.
