Overeem, Filipovic Bout Likely

It is looking very likely that the rumored bout between Alistair Overeem and Mirko Filipovic will indeed happen as according to Sherdog, Overeem has confirmed that the fight against Filipovic will happen, with Overeem adding,

“The fight is definitely happening, and I’m really glad. I am already training very hard, and I’m 100 percent certain that it will not go the distance. I don’t care if it is going to be by knockout or by submission, I don’t want the fight to go to a judges’ decision. I want to finish Mirko Cro Cop.”

Assuming that the fight does indeed happen, it would be the first time Filipovic has stepped in to the ring since his win over Tatsuya Mizuno in March.  This bout bears watching due to its personal nature; to recap, Overeem called out Filipovic publicly, especially after each of his wins.  The proposed bout will take place at DREAM 6 on September 23 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.
