ALISTAIR OVEREEM RUMORS

Junior dos Santos: I hope Alistair Overeem doesn't fail the drug test this time

Alistair Overeem has called out former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos lots over the past years, even insulting the Brazilian in the process. Thing is, though, the two have been set to fight one another twice before and it was Overeem who pulled out both times and forced the bout to be cancelled.

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.

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...

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...
