Check out a backstage look at Alistair’s fight with Bigfoot Silva. Gotta respect Overeem for putting out this video, and showing the fans all of the pre fight talk, even though we all knew the outcome of the fight. Overeem seemed like he was in good spirits after but it can’t be easy dealing with a loss like that. His low testosterone levels is going to be an issue for the rest of his career, especially if he is unable to get a TRT exemption like the Nevada State Athletic Commission hinted at, since it seemed to play a big factor in this fight. Looking forward to his eventual match up with JDS after he heals up from his quadricep injury that forced him out of UFC 160. Thanks to Intravid for the find.
