Update: Hunt refutes announcement of Overeem fight, still wants steroid clause added to contract

Tom Taylor - December 21, 2016

Yesterday afternoon, reports of a thrilling UFC 209 heavyweight rematch between recent title challenger Alistair Overeem and fan favorite knockout artist Mark Hunt began to swirl. The bout seemed to mark the end of Hunt’s long, anti-UFC tirade, which stemmed from the PED bust of his UFC 200 opponent Brock Lesnar, and the UFC’s apparent lack of concern about this bust. This matchup was announced by the UFC, and reported by many major MMA news outlets, including Hunt’s own website, where quotes from Hunt about the rematch were featured. Apparently, however, this fight is not a done deal just yet.

VIDEO | Alistair Overeem Thinks Conor McGregor Could Survive More than 1.5 Rounds If They Fought

Tom Taylor - August 31, 2016

Conor McGregor is one of the best fighters on earth. Yet having spent most of  his UFC career as a featherweight, he also resides on the smaller half of the UFC roster. That means that, despite all his talent, he probably wouldn’t stand much of a chance against the behemoths of the UFC heavyweight division.

Overeem on Training with Arlovski: I Don't Think He's Cool With Me At All

Tom Taylor - August 30, 2016

Over the last few years, UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem has spent a good deal of time training under the tutelage Greg Jackson in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Yet when Overeem was booked to fight Andrei Arlovski, a long time staple of Jackson’s camp, things got a little awkward. Jackson and co. opted to corner Arlovski for the fight, while Overeem reduced his time at the Albuquerque gym and did most of his training elsewhere. Now that the fight has come and gone, however, Overeem is back at Jackson’s, training under the same room as his recent foe as he prepares for his upcoming title fight with Stipe Miocic.

Alistair Overeem wants title shot with win over Andrei Arlovski

bjpenndotcom - March 26, 2016

As we approach the UFC’s first event in Holland on May 8th, Alistair Overeem believes he deserves a title fight with a win over his teammate Andrei Arlovski. Overeem is currently riding a 3-fight win streak that has seen him defeat Stefan Struve, Roy Nelson, and Junior dos Santos. A win over Arlovski would not only make it 4 straight for Overeem, but a win over a former heavyweight champion would be huge for Overeem’s hopes of a title shot.
