When fans are given the opportunity to interact with fighters, sometimes things get interesting.
From requesting that fighters hit them, to getting into heated arguments live in person, there is undoubtedly a level of uncertainty when it comes to fan interactions.
Ahead of Alistair Overeems UFC 203 heavyweight title fight against Stipe Miocic on Saturday night in Cleveland, he took some time to speak with media members as part of his scheduled open workout on Wednesday afternoon.
Overeem was greeted by a Stipe Miocic fan, who proceeded to heckle Overeem with a song that Overeem found quite amusing.
The former K-1 champion enters his title fight on a 4-fight win streak, with his most recent win being a TKO victory over teammate Andrei Arlovski. The win cemented Overeem’s place in the heavyweight division, landing him at #3 on the UFC’s official heavyweight rankings.
He faces none other than UFC heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic, who enters the bout on a 3-fight win streak that has seen him KO Mark Hunt, Andrei Arlovski, and Fabricio Werdum earlier this year.
