Overeem was born in England, but now fights out of the Netherlands.

Welcome to SportsNation! On Thursday, we'll go inside the octagon when Strikeforce's MMA heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem drops by to talk about the upcoming Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament.

Overeem (34-11) will fight in a Grand Prix quarterfinal bout in April, against Fabricio Werdum, which will be seen on Showtime. The network will also broadcast the Fedor Emelianenko-Antonio Silva Grand Prix quarterfinal bout on Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The winners of the two matches meet in the semifinal round of the tournament.

The 6-5, 265-pound Overeem won the Strikeforce heavyweight belt in 2007 and sucessfully defended the title with a TKO of Brett Rogers in 2010. He hasn't lost since winning the title, with nine straight victories and one no contest. Fans can check him out on Twitter: @alistairovereem.
