Alistair Overeem Is Focused On His Next Battle, Winning The Fight

Alistair Overeem will look to make a comeback from his loss to Antonio Silva, when he steps in to the octagon at UFC on FS1: Boston to face Travis Browne. The Reem has been the subject of much scrutiny since his failed drug tests and subsequent suspension.

After missing out on a title eliminator match with Junior Dos Santos, Overeem fought against Antonio Silva. UFC 156 was quite an eye opener for the Dutchman, who suffered a shattering KO defeat. Overeem was on hand to talk with MMAWeekly.com to outline his future plans:

“Very happy, very pleased to be back, It’s just a matter of time in my sense. We still have one more mountain to climb, that’s Bigfoot. But to be honest, I do not see any problem and then yes it’s going to be an exciting day.”

Another fight with Bigfoot would certainly be an interesting affair, especially as the first bout left a few questions floating around.

“There’s always pressure,” said Overeem. “There’s always tension; I like that. That is my fuel, but every fight it’s a change, you just need to get the job done. I just believe even if the title will be a few fights away, I’m always focused on my next battle. Winning the next fight is the most important thing.”

It is very important that Overeem is not overlooking Browne, if his fight with BF taught us anything it’s just that. Browne is just as big, if not more of a threat on the feet than Bigfoot, and Overeem will have his questionable chin tested if his hands are low.

A win over Browne probably wouldn’t earn AO a title shot, in fact it really shouldn’t, but it will put him straight in to the mix in a shallow division.

    Failed drug tests, arrogant pre-fight attitude, getting KTFO in style by non-PED fighters and endless documentaries explaining why he can't succeed. Yep, this is the role model kids desparately need. Please go back to Japan soon, thanks.

    Seriously, please try and use some logic instead of your poor attempt at humor. If you were a teacher or police officer, I guarantee you'd not be saying these things. Know why? Because you have to deal with kids who are cheating and breaking the law whenever possible. Where do these kids get these ideas? From poor role models, that's where. Their role models do whatever they want. "If he's doing it, and gets respect from others, it must a "right." Go and tell that to Rickson or Randy and they'd show you exactly where your vag is, lol. Something tells me that a lifetime of shortcuts has left your so-caolled mind unable to see past the length of your nose. I supposed your handle sums up your values, too.

    excuse me, i just answered without reading your text.... and i just have to reply one thing (and its maybe not that popular): fighter's dodn't have to be role models!! they dond't owe the fans anything and their only purpose to fight should be to love what they can do best and support their families. who are we to judge them? stop to give off responsibility, just to make your own life easier! amen

    "I do not see any problem...". I think Overeem sees problems about as well as he sees uppercuts.

    Overeem should fight Josh Barnett next. That would be one hell of a fight.
