Todd Duffee Says He’s Fighting Alistair Overeem at K-1 Dynamite!! on NYE

Well it looks like his detractors won’t be able to call Alistair Overeem a can crusher after New Year’s Eve.

According to heavyweight prospect Todd Duffee, he and the the Strikeforce and 2010 K-1 Grand Prix champion will meet in Japan that night as the main event of Fields’ K-1 Dynamite!! show.

Duffee made the announcement via his Facebook page, but quickly took the post down, but not before we grabbed a screenshot of the message in which he asked, "Have no plans on NYE? Dream Dynamite 2010: Duffee VS Overeem on HDnet!!!"

The 6-1 Evansville, Indiana native, who only fought once this year and was dropped by the UFC for his "bad attitude" according to the promotion’s president Dana White, has not fought since being knocked out by Mike Russow in the third round at UFC 114 after pounding on the Chicago, Illinois native for the first twelve and a half minutes of the fight. He’s scheduled to face 6-3 TUF 10 veteran Abe Wagner under the Titan Fighting Championship banner on January 29.

Overeem (33-11-1) has been equally as inactive in MMA this year, logging just one fight against Brett Rogers, whom he defeated by TKO in just under four minutes at Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery in St Louis, Missouri in May.

The fight has not officially been announced, but Overeem stated last week that he was hoping for a decent opponent and that he was hoping that DREAM would put their heavyweight belt up as the prize for the winner if the match-up was belt-worthy and this fun little scrap fits the bill.

Having fought in the UFC twice doesn't make you not a can.

Duffee is a solid fighter but this fight is too much for his young career. Not exactly the loss you want to take if you want to get back into the UFC.

@ Spicymeatball, what does Duffee even have on the ground? Overeem has this standing up by far, and has mean ground and pound, very good Jitsu, and submission possibilities. The only way Duffee could win is by a lucky punch, which won't happen. I hope this fight goes down. Overeem by devastating finish.

When Todd Duffee told Dana all he wanted was to eat, we never thought he meant horsemeat.

Good matchup, waaaaaay nicer than lashley vs overeem. But Duffee has power and could put the reem to sleep if he connects, but i feel the reem will prevail.

P.S. @RwilsonR-fucking hilarious, CP better take the spud outta their ass and send you a t-shirt.

"K-1 Dynamite!! Overeem vs Duffee: There's no testing, right?"

More of a tippy-cup crusher really.

Hormone therapy meet horse meat diet...

Duffee seems like a good enough guy. I am concerned that he has the same tiny-gonad problem as Sonnen. I hope he gets his hands on some good hormone replacement therapy soon before he wastes away.

What if he takes Overeem down, I could see an upset happening.
Yazloz18- December 22, 2010 at 12:42 pm
I love Duffee. I can honestly say its not the Fedor/Overeem fight everyone wants but Duffee is a quality opponent

Or fight in matches that make sense...
Buffalo Ben- December 22, 2010 at 12:22 pm
well that's good. After all, no reason why an MMA champion should have to fight in MMA much

Are we sure its not Valentijn? Alistair will ruin Duffee.
SumDumGuy- December 22, 2010 at 12:09 pm
I don't think you're considered a can if you haven't already peaked. So Duffee would be more of a over matched or rushed prospect.
DaltonSwayze- December 22, 2010 at 12:03 pm
Wait, why wouldn't we be able to call him a can crusher after this? I mean, what the hell has Duffee done other than survive the world's most hellacious hammerfist?
Fedor Penn- December 22, 2010 at 12:02 pm
The Reem by flying knee of death.
Jugger- December 22, 2010 at 12:02 pm
I like it.

You know how much hilarity would ensue if Duffee turned Overeem's lights out?Like, metric fuck tons of hilarity.

Well, the fans will be treated to at least one knockout.
