Alistair Overeem Beats Up Five Nightclub Bouncers, Nearly Loses Hand

(Just before the nightclub brawl, Overeem also reportedly negged eight women and kino escalated on six.)

When it was announced that Alistair Overeem turned down a Strikeforce heavyweight title fight against Brett Rogers due to an injured hand, we thought it was one of those phantom injuries that mysteriously arises when someone asks you to fight a comparatively unknown up-and-comer on a month’s notice. But it turns out Overeem’s injury is very real. And there’s a pretty interesting story behind it. Fighter’s Only has the tale

In a recent blog posting, Boon told how Overeem (29-11-0-1) had suffered a hand infection following a nightclub brawl earlier this month. According to Boon, Alistair and his brother Valentine (26-22-0) – both heavyweights – had been involved in an altercation that left five security staff needing hospital treatment.

"Alistair attended some famous dance club with his brother Valentine. Went to the toilet and did not have coins to pay the toilet woman. Alistair told her he would pay a euro when he came back, because he did not have change. Then the security guard who was near by started to get involved," he wrote.

"Brother Valentine saw the incident and also started asking what the problem was. They offered to pay, but by then 6 security guards came over surrounding them. The Overeem brothers were asked to leave, Alistair was already outside when he saw his brother Valentine fighting.

"Valentine still was discussing the situation on his way outside with one of the security guards hit Valentine in the face with a flash light. Three security guards dived onto Valentine and brother Alistair wanted to go back inside to help his brother. This resulted in five security guards in the hospital."

Boon went on the reveal that one of the security guards involved in the incident was fired afterwards, while a second tried to lay the blame on the Overeem brothers.

In the meantime, Alistair Overeem was complaining of a painful cut on his hand and went to hospital at the urging of Golden Glory team mates.

"It was only because of the management pushing him to go to the hospital that he saved his hand. When he finally got his injury checked, he was advised to stay a few days in the hospital. They told him if he would have come any later he would have lost his hand," said Boon.

Neither Strikeforce nor Golden Glory have said when Overeem can now be expected to defend his title and a match is unlikely to take place before the end of the summer.

Well, at least it didn’t happen in one of those gay clubs. Now let this be a lesson to every American traveling abroad: When you’re partying in Holland, always keep an extra Euro in your shoe. You do not want to raise the ire of the Toilet Lady.

Native here. Hate it if you have to pay for the toilet in a bar. Hate those clubs who dont pay the toilet lady. I allways try not to pay if I take a piss, costs like 50c up to a euro ($0.65 - $1.25).
Bouncer got fired after incident, nuff said.

Thanks in compensation compelling the at all times to talk atop of this, I affirm strongly involving it and lady-love scholarship more on this topic.

Why is it every time someone in fighting nowadays gets hurt or cut, they damn near die of some kind of infection? On TUF, didn't Faulkner get an infection from what was just a bad bruise? (This new edit option for comments rocks by the way.)

If that had been me, two bouncers would have died at the scene, four would have gone to the hospital, and I would have gone back inside and taken the toilet lady out with a flying knee. Straight up ninja, thats all i'm saying.

Purple Pickle, that was a great comment. You had me laughing my ass off.


Straight up Ninja! LOL. I love it.

No way Aussie. Why the fuck would we have to do that. I would punch whoever tries to collect money from me so I can take a leak. The most that happens is if you go into a restaraunt and they say you have to buy something to use the bathroom. USA doesnt have fag laws liket that. I mean we got some shitty laws but not stupid shit like paying to go.

Thats one thing i did not like about europe...having to pay to use a toilet! Thank fuck we dont have that here in Australia! Do you yanks have to pay to go?

FTW on the Will Ferrel reference.
DansMuayThaiMMA- May 22, 2009 at 12:44 pm
That's pretty bad ass. 6 on 2 and 5 of the bouncers ended up in the hospital. SWEEEEEEEEET!!!!

At least he's not one those guys who does all this training and gets his ass kicked by a bouncer.

Such an awesome story. I would have payed to see that shit. So bold. Fucking security guards trying to act hard and get rocked hahaha.

haha kempo...

i just realised that myself, even though ive lived in the netherlands for 18years, and recently moved away from that hellhole, i do also question why really lol... We don't have those ladies in Norway at least :-/
kempo666- May 22, 2009 at 8:54 am
Maybe I am an ignorant American, but why is there a lady in the toilets of Holland... and why do they demand money?
Nut Puncher 9000- May 22, 2009 at 8:47 am
Hit in the face with a flashlight...

I wonder what must have been going through that bouncer's mind as he watched Valentine take it and then Alistair get angry.

I bet its similar to waking up a Bear for a photio but then realizing you are in the same cave as a huge pissed of Grizzly and all you brought was a camera.

I wish I could have been there to witness that.
Fucklord- May 22, 2009 at 8:38 am
Wow, I am truly shocked. Not that Alistair can take 5 bouncers but that he didn't gas in the process
Fedor vs. Bas- May 22, 2009 at 7:22 am
Don't bouncers in Holland know who Alistair Overeem is? Why pick a fight with him?
Art Gibs- May 22, 2009 at 7:06 am
I'm skeptical. Overeem put five bouncers in the hospital, suffered only a cut hand, and it's the bouncers' fault? Of course, if I beat the shit out of five dudes I'd say it wasn't my fault, too.
