The fact is Overeem has basically held the SF heavyweight division hostage for years, he agreed to take part in the tournament and then backed out of his second fight but at least verbally agreed to return in the fall. Only to turn around and sign to fight in another promotion affiliated with Golden Glory and an organization that has a legal history with the UFC already. (United glory was originally Ultimate Glory). Golden Glory played some dirty pool and the UFC turned around and played some of there own. Sucks for the fighters because they are really just pawns in a game.
