Former K-1 World Grand Prix champion Alistair Overeem has left the Blackzilian training camp that he has called home for the past two years.

Glenn Robinson, Overeem’s manager and president of Florida-based Authentic Sports Management, reported on ‘The MMA Hour’ that the former Strikeforce and Dream heavyweight champion is currently training in Thailand.

Robinson clarified that Overeem has not severed relations with the Blackzilian camp.  The ‘Reem’ has an open invitation to train with the Florida camp.

Overeem’s time with the Blackzilians has seen him lose both his fights in the UFC, first against Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva and later to Travis Browne.  Overeem is set to face Frank Mir at UFC 169 on Super Bowl weekend in Newark, New Jersey.

We will have to wait and see if the ‘Reem’s’ change in training can help him bounce back into the win column next month.
