The two will go head-to-head in the center of the Octagon in the main event of UFC 203 in Miocic’s hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
Ahead of the championship fight, Overeem has been followed by a strong Cleveland supporter of the champion and was continuously heckled during the UFC 203 open workouts and pre-fight press conference.
“The Demolition Man” came face-to-face with his heckler during the open workouts and did something that you wouldn’t expect the massive UFC heavyweight fighter about to challenge for the title do to a loud-mouthed fan.
Alistair shook hands with the boisterous Miocic supporter and even gave him a hug, giving the crowd around no option but to cheer.
The heckler continued to chop at “The Reem” even after being treated so nicely, telling Overeem that he needed to cancel the photo shoot after the fight because he wasn’t going to be looking good after the Miocic was done with him.
“The Demolition Man” said at the open workouts, “It’s just one guy making noise. I get energy from everybody and to be honest, when you’re at the top you’re going to have a lot of hate and you’re going to have a lot of love.”
