Mike Chiappetta from MMA Fighting reports:

The field of the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament came to town, with a free fan experience at Manhattan’s famed Roseland Ballroom that drew around 2,000 fans.

“I love tournaments,” said Alistair Overeem. “Tournaments decide who’s No. 1. This tournament will decide who the No. 1 heavyweight in MMA is, no doubt.”

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva is “very big, but I’m used to meeting big fighters before.” Fedor Emelianenko said through his interpreter “I’m not worried, nervous or any of that.”

“Alistair Overeem is my son, my b*tch,” Fabricio Werdum said to a roar, before quickly pulling back, saying, “It’s a joke.”
