Though he’s being courted by both the UFC and Strikeforce, where he is the reigning heavyweight champ, Alistair Overeem will likely have his next fight back in the K-1 ring. A report on MixFight.nl, translated by our trusty friend Robert at Free Fight Videos, says Overeem has accepted an offer to fight 2008 K-1 Grand Prix winner Remy Bonjasky at the end of March.
There’s no word yet on whether Bonjasky has officially agreed to the fight, and after seeing what Overeem did to the dude who stomped his head in the finals of the Grand Prix he might be having some doubts. If he does take the fight he might want to try and bulk up first, considering what a monster Overeem has become.
The bad news for us MMA types is that this further delays Overeem’s return to the land of little gloves. His recent fights have made me all the more eager to see him in against big time MMA heavyweights, either in the UFC or somewhere else, to see if he can keep up these performances against top-notch opponents in places where there are commissions and – I’ll just say it – drug tests. Looks like the wait continues.
Just for shits and giggles, rewatch Overeem’s destruction of Badr Hari after the jump. ‘Cause what else you got to do?
