Earlier today we were told by Dana White that Alistair Overeem ‘was literally hiding from Junior dos Santos’.

Now, thanks to MMAFighting.com, Overeem has spoken out about these allegations:

“I’m hurt. Rib problem. So first [I] need an ETA on recovery time. [It] would be unwise to accept any fight before knowing exactly what’s up. [I] wouldn’t want to pull out of any fight [due to] being unfit, especially an anticipated fight as this one.”
