Alistair Overeem is the Smartest Guy in the Room

Alistair Overeem is receiving criticism for his post-fight interview at UFC 169. Following his unanimous decision victory over Frank Mir, Overeem said “I heard there’s word that Brock Lesnar is about to come back to the UFC. Well I’ll be here waiting for him.” The resentment is reasonable but you can’t blame him for taking advantage of a situation that could mean a high...

Alistair Overeem Forced to Soul-Search After KO Loss to ‘Bigfoot’

Answer: What Alistair Overeem (pictured) did after getting knocked out by Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva on the heels of his nine-month testosterone suspension. Question: What is soul-searching? If this were a game of “Jeopardy,” that scenario perfectly describes what Overeem’s life has been since February’s upset loss to Silva. With a shot at UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez...

Video: King Mo gets spinning back fisted by 'The Hardcore Kid'

When Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal entered the Bellator light heavyweight Season 8 bracket nearly everyone had him penciled in for a spot in the finals. Emanuel "The Hardcore Kid" Newton's bracket read a little different.  After putting Przemyslaw Mysiala asleep last month in Thackerville, Louisiana, it was off to the Maverik Center in Utah for the new face of...

Antonio Bigfoot Silva KO’s Alistair Overeem At UFC 156 (GIF)

The fight looked pretty even going into the last round between Antonio Bigfoot Silva and Alistair Overeem.  Silva had no intentions of letting the judges take this fight into their own hands.  Silva knocked the crap out of Overeem in round 4 and scored the KO victory. Overeem's head looked like a punching bag, and I couldn't believe how long he kept standing up and taking...

UFC 156: Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva Batters Alistair Overeem for TKO Win (Video Highlights)

Alistair Overeem certainly talked the talk leading up to Saturday’s shootout against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva (Pictured), and for the opening two rounds “The Demolition Man” walked the walk. Unfortunately for Overeem, the third frame came rolling around and Bigfoot blitzed him with a barrage of bombs that abruptly put an end to his night. Not to mention his shot at the...

Overeem ready to return

Alistair Overeem was banned for nine months. That doesn't mean the UFC heavyweight contender didn't brutalize anybody inside of an octagon after he ran afoul of Nevada's doping policy. "I hurt all of them," Overeem said of his sparring partners. "I crushed their souls." Overeem -- who takes on Antonio Silva at UFC 156 in Las Vegas on Saturday -...

Overeem Doesn’t “See Any Problems” With ‘Bigfoot’ Silva, Says “It’s Just A Matter Of Time” Before He Faces Cain

It has been a long time coming for Alistair Overeem. The dutch heavyweight has been out of action for over a year dating back to his octagon debut at UFC 141 where he retired former champ Brock Lesnar in devastating fashion. Soon afterwards he was found to have a testosterone to epitestosterone ratio of 14:1 (the legal limit in Nevada is 6:1) after which the Nevada State Athletic...

Junior dos Santos Refuses to Mention Alistair Overeem by Name

Have you ever hated someone so much that the very thought of uttering their name disgusted you? Well, it appears UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos (Pictured) has reached that point with Alistair Overeem. During Wednesday’s conference call, dos Santos refused to say Overeem’s name when asked about his bitter rival. When asked if he’d rather defend his crown against a...
