While Overeem and Arlovski were never best friends training together at the gym, the fight has brought out much more animosity amongst the two products currently training out of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
“There’s no relationship,” said Arlovski on UFC Tonight (transcribed by MMA Weekly).
Arlovski said that Overeem asked the UFC for the fight, which put their coaches in a predicament.
“He put Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn in a spot. In my opinion, it’s not right,” said Arlovski.
When asked if Arlovski and Overeem would be training together after their fight, “The Pitbull” took a very clear position.
“Absolutely not,” he said when asked about the possibility. “Absolutely not. No.”
