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...

Overeem under fire for injuring fighters during training

A training room takedown from Alistair Overeem resulted in Jon Jones injuring his knee last week and his fight with Daniel Cormier being postponed until January, and while Greg Jackson has attempted to downplay the incident, other fighters have now voiced their disapproval at the way ‘The Reem’ conducts himself during fight camp.

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...

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...
