ALISTAIR OVEREEM RUMORS

Alistair Overeem not fighting at UFC 191, wants Junior Dos Santos next

The UFC is still actively pursuing a co-main event for the upcoming Pay-Per-View card on Sept. 5 in Las Vegas, but Alistair Overeem won't be the person filling that slot. UFC 191 features flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson in the main event against top-ranked contender John Dodson, but the show still needs a secondary headliner with the card just four weeks away. Overeem was in...

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...

WATCH: Alistair Overeem Pounds the Daylights Out of Stefan Struve

Alistair Overeem looks like a big ole beast. If he says he is going to knock someone out in 30 seconds it is not hard to imagine him doing it. However, the big man had lost three of his last four fights heading in to Saturdays's UFC event in Phoenix. At the age of 34 he is getting close to becoming the 'old guy.'Against Stefen Struve he certainly showed there is plenty of fight left...

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. Resurgent light-heavyweight star Anthony ‘Rumble’...

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...
