Alistair Overeem finally has his opponent for FEG’s Dynamite 2010 show on New Year’s Eve, and it will be former UFC heavyweight Todd Duffee.
The massive heavyweight had been heavily rumored as Duffee’s next opponent for several days, but MMAFighting.com reported the official switch this morning. FEG is expected to officially announce the fight next week, just days before the event takes place.
Duffee (6-1) was released from the UFC in September due to attitude problems. He hasn’t fought since losing to Mike Russow in a stunning knockout at UFC 114 in a fight Duffee had dominated the entire way. He recently committed to facing Abe Wagner for Titan Fighting Championships on Jan. 29, a fight he’s still expected to take if he’s medically able to do so.
Overeem last competed two weeks ago when he won the K-1 World Grand Prix, becoming the first-ever mixed martial artist to do so.
