After his UFC debut, we reported here on BJPENN.COM that the former management team of Alistair Overeem, Golden Glory, was seeking to have his wages garnished due to breach of contract.
They filed a lawsuit in the Clark County courts and where granted the judgment to collect a large sum from the athlete based on their contract with Alistair signed four-years ago.
The NSAC was forced by a Nevada judge to withhold the funds from Overeem’s fight purse, but yesterday without the proper paperwork and bonds from Golden Glory they released the check in full to Alistair Overeem for his successful debut victory over Brock Lesnar.
Now, the team at Golden Glory states, they are still going for his pockets, but will now target his more lucrative pay-per-view bonuses. Which based on the lawsuit has become public at $2.00 per pay-per-view buy.
Here is what a representative from Golden Glory had to say on the matter:
“This was a short-term possibility that KOI and Golden Glory were prepared for. Seeking the initial writ was merely the first step in a long-term litigation strategy that KOI and Golden Glory will prosecute in Nevada. The writ of attachment remedy remains fully available to my clients and will be sought as to Mr. Overeem’s future pay-per-view payout, which we expect will be more lucrative than his initial fight purse.”
“Rest assured, now that we have had the opportunity to troubleshoot complex international hurdles – and without a long holiday weekend to contend with – future writs of attachment will be utilized to ensure that Mr. Overeem makes good on the commissions owed to my clients and his Golden Glory training team, who helped him achieve the success he now enjoys.featured, MMA NEWS, Strikeforce, strikeforce news, ufc news
