"(After the Strikeforce grand prix tournament) I might go to UFC or boxing. Definitely, (I'm seriously thinking about fighting Vitali Klitschko). I think it matches my personality. I'm always looking for a challenge. That came about in fighting for K-1 and becoming K-1 champion, something nobody ever did before. It would be cool to go to boxing and beat the main guy there. If you give me a good preparation, good sparring partners, which I can arrange, I can fix that, with my background already in kickboxing, my K-1 background, I'm sure I can break some bones."

— Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem reveals his potential future plans during a recent interview, which could include a long-awaited move to the UFC or a switch over to the boxing world for a dream date against Vitali Klitschko.
