The Curious Case of Alistair Overeem

For those of you who haven’t seen the movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, it features Brad Pitt as a man who ages backwards.  The movie could be a biography for UFC fighter Alistair “The Demolition Man” Overeem.  Overeem’s career resurgence was sparked by, believe it or not, back-to-back KO losses and a positive drug test for steroids.  At the age of 36, these...

Alistair Overeem: A Bonafide Journeyman

Alistair Overeem had his first professional mixed martial arts fight at the very first “It’s Showtime” event back in 1999. He won by guillotine choke. It is now 2014, and to say Overeem has had the career of a bonafide journeyman would be an understatement. He has tromped the peaks and valleys of the fight game as much as any man could.

Ben Rothwell TKO’s Alistair Overeem at UFC Fight Night 50 (Video Highlights)

Sometimes, mixed martial arts is the epitome of never judging a book by its cover. Case in point, a flabby, hairy-backed Ben Rothwell (pictured) facing a ripped Alistair Overeem. My wife, verbatim, “That guy (Rothwell) just beat that guy (Overeem)? No way.” True story. And, true story. To the surprise of everyone not named Ben Rothwell, Rothwell overlooked Overeem’s 4-1 odds...
