ALISTAIR OVEREEM RUMORS

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 Gambles And Wins Ahead Of Free Agency

Expectations were sky high when Alistair Overeem (pictured) finally signed with the UFC back in 2011. Everything got off to a great start for Overeem when he sent former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar into MMA retirement at UFC 141, but things quickly went south for the slugger. Overeem lost his chance at then-champ Junior dos Santos for running, then failing, a random drug test...

UFC on FOX 17: Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem (Video Highlights)

It took several years, but former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem (pictured) finally faced off inside the cage. Dos Santos has been resting for the past year from the brutal beatings he’s absorbed in his past two fights. And it’s not as though he didn’t look sharp against his rival, but perhaps the punishment he’s taken has finally started...

WATCH: Roy "Big Country" Nelson With the Fat Guy Play of the Day Against Alistair Overeem

According to Roy "Big Country" Nelson's wikipedia page he weighs in at just 254 pounds, but he looks a little bit thicker than that in this fat guy's opinion. So when I watched the highlights of his fight against Alistair Overeem I couldn't help but be a little proud. Here he is fighting a guy that has four inches on him and is a ripped 247 pound ball of muscle. Conventional wisdom...

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. The Reem fought his 52nd bout on Sept...

Over the Top: Rothwell KO’s Overeem in Connecticut

Any hopes and dreams that Alistair Overeem still may have had of securing a UFC title shot during this lifetime were shattered last night in Connecticut. The man responsible for swinging the hammer was none other than ‘Big’ Ben Rothwell. It was a monster overhand right by Rothwell that sent The Reem to the canvas. Overeem would move from his back to the turtle position where...

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...

Ben Rothwell Stuns Alistair Overeem With TKO Win At UFC Fight Night 50

Round One: The heavyweight co-main event is underway. Overeem with a kick to the leg and a big punch behind it. Another leg stomp from Overeem and soon after he launches with a big knee to the body. In again with another knee and then back out. A cuffing shot clips Rothwell’s head. Good start for Overeem here. Rothwell with a punch and Overeem quickly looks to clinch. They...
