September 8, 2014 4:20 pm by BJPENN.COM News

Anthony Johnson hasn’t been afraid to speak his mind when it comes to former training partner Alistair Overeem and the incidents that occurred during The Reem’s time at Blackzilians.

Rumble spoke in an interview with BloodyElbow about his desire to fight Overeem in the cage saying:

“Yeah, I would definitely take that fight because for me, it wouldn’t be about business. This would be personal for me because of the things that I’ve seen. I have nothing against him as a fighter. He trains hard, and I’m not stupid enough to think that he sucks. He’s still dangerous. It’s just that as a training partner, I’ve seen the things he’s done, and I have zero respect for that.”
