Alistair Overeem is looking to get past his UFC Fight Night 50 loss to Ben Rothwell, and in doing so is looking to fight again before the end of 2014.
Overeem joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour to discuss why there are no easy fights in the UFC, and why he wasn’t worried about the UFC cutting him following his third loss in 4 fights.
“Not worried, worried is a big word. It’s something that can happen, the UFC can do that after you lose a fight. So it’s definitely something that you keep in account. Yeah, it’s something that goes through your mind, because they can do it.”
“It’s also that when you’re in the flow of winning, you’re in the flow of winning. Now there’s definitely been some hardships here. I also have to say in the UFC, there’s no easy fights in the UFC. Everybody’s tough. This was something I said before the fight. Don’t underestimate Ben. This guy’s 280 pounds, he can take a punch and he hits like a truck. It is the UFC, everybody is there to win.”
“[I’d like to fight] as soon as possible, because I was not out. I was not sleeping. I was just dazed, and Ben capitalized. So I guess if it’s up to me, not too far away.”
