MMA Can Wait: Alistair Overeem Headed Back to K-1 to Face Remy Bonjasky Next?

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?

Yo, that first knock down was SICK. The second one was inferior but still brutal. Overeem is a fuckin' truck.

1. Diaz got busted at a Pride event in Nevada.

2. Does Badr Hari own a Kia dealership?

3. Overeem is running back to the corner like he's holding in a deuce.

I just use roids. Fuck all the bullshit.
Ouch! That hurts- February 19, 2009 at 12:09 pm
But Silvia's so ripped?

TUF Guy, you're about as cool as a boner in sweatpants.

I love it how every discussion of Alistair Overeem brings out all the experts in human physiology to share with us what is or is not possible for a person to look like without using steroids. News flash dipshits: you can't tell if a person is using steroids just by looking. Do you think anybody thought Tim Sylvia's goofy ass was juicing before he got busted?

Cool, knock it off.

It has a lot to do with genetics and nutrition indeed, but one can always wonder what they feed him at Golden Glory.

@ Ouch! That hurts

I think they have some form of testing, since Diaz got caught for using marijuana. But it has to be very different compared to the US, Bob Sapp sure didn't have any problems passing the test at least.

Actually. Someone with really good genetics could bulk up a lot in a short amount of time.. maybe a year... If they weren't eating right or working out right then they start doing it all yeah its possible to gain lean mass in lest say excess of 15 maybe 25.5 pounds !

Ive seen people at the gym one month and they look about like me (skinny hard gainer) and I am lazy for say 3 months and don't go to the gym much and then I start goin again and see the same guy and he looks ripped !!! I have worked out hard for year straight without slacking before and didn't gain as much but I am a hard gainer. I have family that can practically look at weights and get jacked and I know they aren't juicing !

After looking a little closer it looks like either 2002-2008 or 2003-2008. That's a good amount of time but still.
armfarmer- February 19, 2009 at 10:59 am
What was the timespan for that weight gain? I can't really tell from the link to the article about "the expanding man". It takes years and years of hardcore lifting to get that big.
Anonymous- February 19, 2009 at 10:57 am
I don't know what the big fuss is, Alistair is an elite athlete and clearly just a big dude. He's said it himself that before he hhad to cut a ton of weight and couldn't lift weights, now he can! Just because people are jacked doesn't necessarily mean their juicing
rokabee- February 19, 2009 at 10:52 am
Seriously...thanks tho.
Ouch! That hurts- February 19, 2009 at 10:52 am
Do they test for steriods in K1? Just wondering, it has nothing with Alistair at all, I don't know what you are implying.
WhaT?- February 19, 2009 at 10:51 am
Badr Hari has a wittle-bitty bruise on his shoulder.

Some of us work! Or act like we work while we re-watch the Overeem vs Hari. Thanks for taking away from my work schedule CP....oh, and I just got promoted!

@ CP

I got a roast beef sandwich to eat. That's what else I got to do. The fight is a good watch just cuz Badr is a major dickbag and I love seeing dickbags get their shit ruined.
TUF Guy- February 19, 2009 at 10:40 am
