Fight of the Day: Alistair Overeem vs. Ricardo Fyeet


(Props: DrTurboFightChannel)

Before he was a spinach-eating heavyweight wrecking machine, Alistair Overeem was just a wiry kid with a dream. Here’s the video of his MMA debut at the age of 19 against the very insane-looking Ricardo Fyeet, at the first "It’s Showtime" event in the Netherlands in October 1999. It’s amazing to see how far Overeem has come in the last ten years. Check out his broke-ass gong-and-dash when the fight starts at the 1:45 mark, and that sad attempt at a guard-pull at 3:01. In what would later become a recurring theme, the Demolition Man manages to finish his opponent by guillotine choke. Overeem didn’t have long to savor the victory; he fought again just four days later at a Rings event in Tokyo, losing to Iouri Kotchkine by majority decision.

Can the CSAC give this guy the "Nick Diaz drug test pass" to get him to fight Fedor? I'm not saying he... I'm just saying.

1:23, y'all. This fight is sponsored by a "non-stop live sex show."

I don't know why (or maybe I do), but Overeems entrance in his last couple of fights makes me LO-fuckin-L...

Wait so your trying to say you think Overeem takes some sort of magical chemical that transformed his body from skinny guy to hugely muscular man with gigantic facial bone structure? Cant be possible anybody that trains can completely change their entire muscular and bone structure its really easy.
