Alistair “The Reem” Overeem couldn’t be more excited for the new women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm. The Reem (39-14-1 MMA) is on a two fight win streak and with a win against Junior dos Santos at UFC on Fox on December 19, he may position himself for his own title run.
Overeem suffered key losses to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, Travis “Hapa” Brown and most recently “Big Ben” Rothwell. Junior dos Santos (17-3 MMA) on the other hand, Santos has only been defeated by Cain Velasquez since signing with the UFC back in 2008.
Overeem takes time with Ariel Helwani to discuss his reaction to the dethroning of Rousey. What did you think about his take on the victory? Enjoy the video
