UFC and Alistair Overeem Negotiating Says Dana White

Quote:
The story of Alistair Overeem, Golden Glory and Zuffa continues down a path that looks more and more like it ends with the talented heavyweight taking his talents to the UFC. After a messy divorce with Strikeforce involving claims by Zuffa that Golden Glory attempted to force the promotion to pay the camp directly, there was some talk that the UFC was in negotiations to sign Alistair over to the "big brand."

On the Dan LeBatard radio show, Dana White addressed the topic:

"We're talking to Overeem. When everything fell apart, you guys heard me come out and say, 'We can't do business with these guys the way these guys want to do business,' meaning his management. Well they've changed their opinions on how they can do business with us, so now we can."

While Overeem falling out of the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix is absolutely a drag for MMA fans, the prospect of seeing him square off with men like Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez has to provide at least a little excitement.

Alistair would be awesome in the UFC. I'd like him to fight Brock Lesnar just for the entertainment value. That fight would be awesome.

He wouldn't kill in the UFC, he does have a suspect chin.

Negotiating his fight schedule to match his steroid cycle? I keed. I really do hope they work this out soon, so he can fight before new years.

LMAO

This is a deal that needs to get done. There is nobody else that can pay Overeem what he wants. I don't see what is taking so long.

I'm going to be pissed if this turns into another Fedor situation...

Perhaps they learned their lesson from the Fedor FanNerds. I remember how Cro Cop, Wandy, ect were going to dominate as well. Perhaps they are wiseing up.

apparently he has 1 russian fight first and then he can probably sign, they are probably negotiating his contract now so after the fight they can immediately sign him

wait the fight has been removed by his wikipedia, maybe he will get signed sooner rather than later, i wouldnt mind mir vs overeem or lesnar vs overeem
