“Rumble” : ‘I’ll move up to heavyweight, K.O. Overeem, and do it all with a smile’
Since his departure from the team, Alistair Overeem has been at the wrong end of many of Johnson’s statements, which often end in some type of physical threat to “The Reem”.
Here’s the latest: (via Fighters Only)
“If Joe Silva called me up and offered me that fight, yeah, I’d take that and knock his head off,” Johnson recently told Fighter’s Only Magazine. “I would take that fight immediately, without hesitation. And that’s not because I see my long term future at heavyweight either. Not really. But before I retire – which I don’t plan on doing any time soon either – I do plan on fighting at heavyweight a couple of times.
“And, well, right now, Alistair Overeem is the right guy (laughs). I’d love to knock him out. And I’d do it with a big smile on my face too.”
