Alistair Overeem: I don't need "warm-up fights" before getting my title shotPosted on July 26, 2012, 02:53 PM by Anton Gurevich
Former number one contender for the UFC Heavyweight title, "The Demolition Man" Alistair Overeem, spoke about his current status in the division, declaring he's more than ready to fight for the title, without going through a tune-up phase. According to Overeem. he's still going strong, and more than ready to "kick *ss".
Back in March, The Reem was suspended for nine month by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The Dutchman could re-apply for his license in December, with sights on facing the winner of Junior dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez bout.
The ongoing trash-talk between Overeem and dos Santos could contribute for such match-up take place regardless of what the Brazilian does against Velasquez.
