The Latest Episode of “The Reem” Is Like a 20 Minute Rocky Montage and WE FREAKIN’ LOVE IT


(Ubereem’s new head trainer, Mike Passenier. Don’t worry, he can move when he has to.)

Many of us assumed that Alistair Overeem would be the UFC Heavyweight champion by now. He did, after all, defeat P4P GOAT and future UFC HOFer Brock Lesnar in his promotional debut with a Diverticulitis Kick so powerful that it sent shockwaves throughout the MGM Grand and possibly the entire planet. Unfortunately, a poorly planned roid cycle, an ill-timed injury and a subsequent ass whooping at the hands of Antonio Silva at UFC 156 all but completely derailed the goliath’s title aspirations.

*lowers voice ten octaves* That is, until now.

The latest episode of the always spectacular The Reem, “Back to Basics,” depicts the former Strikeforce and DREAM heavyweight champion, well, getting back to basics. No longer a full-fledged Blackzilian (which we’re sure has nothing to do with the camp’s close proximity to the Biogenesis clinic), Overeem shifted his training camp back to Holland to focus on his upcoming fight with Travis Browne at Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen. Not to start overhyping Overeem again, but if the video that awaits you after the jump is any indication, we should probably start preparing ourselves for A NEW FUTURE HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMP AWWWW YEAH SNAPINTOASLIMJIM!!1!

In Case You Were Wondering, LMFAO’s Love Affair With The Reem is Still Going Strong


(A few months ago this woman would have gotten face-pushed.)

We’re not exactly sure why, but that terrible dance music-making duo made up of  Berry Gordy’s relatives, LMFAO, sure do seem to love Alistair Overeem. The former Strikeforce, K-1 and DREAM heavyweight champion made his second consecutive cameo in the group’s most recent music video for Sorry for Party Rockin’. Maybe Alistair will be the Captain Lou Albano to their Cindy Lauper.

While Alistair Was Retiring Brock a New Episode of ‘The Reem’ Quietly Made Its Way Onto the Interwebs


(If Arianny liked us 1/10 as much as she does “The Reem” we’d be out of the doghouse right now)

While the rest of us were watching Alistair Overeem make Brock Lesnar wish he had never taken up real fighting, the creative powers behind “The Reem” were releasing another episode of our favorite online documentary.


(Poor Tiki)

Judging by our favorite two gifs from the episode, you can guess that “The Demolition Man” was a big hit in Vegas.

MMA Stock Market: UFC 141 – Lesnar vs. Overeem Edition


(Hey Mario, is that some Jacks Links in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?)

By Jason Moles

When we next see Brock Lesnar, will it be in the Octagon or the squared circle? What did “Cowboy” Cerrone do with the beanie Nate Diaz handed him? Where in the world did this Jimy Hettes guy come from? None of these questions will be answered in this forum. Instead, you’ll learn which UFC 141 fighters’ stock to buy more of, sell off, or hold. Even if you’re still too hung over to remember what happened Friday night, you’ll still need to make a few fiscal moves to stay ahead of the curve. Remember, money never sleeps, kid. Now go make yourself a Bloody Mary then keep reading to kick off the New Year with sage advice about the MMA stock market.

Alistair Overeem – Buy it like they’re giving it away for free

It makes no difference whether you think “The Reem” is completely unstoppable or flat out overrated — when he fights, people watch. Casual fans will be enamored with Alistair Overeem because he looks good with his shirt off (at least that’s why I think Arianny make that face) and the hype that can be drummed up by Zuffa thanks to his Strikeforce, DREAM, and K1 titles. For the next few years, as long as he doesn’t piss hot for some tainted horsemeat, the “Demolition Man” will be a main event attraction that will only make him more valuable with time.

Video: The Reem Season 2 Episode 8


(Video courtesy of Vimeo/THE REEM)

Our favorite web documentary series is back with another episode just intime for its protagonist’s biggest fight of his career.

In this episode of The Reem, Alistair Overeem does some PR work in L.A. ahead of his UFC 141 bout with Brock Lesnar this Friday and spends some time training with Mark Munoz and company at Reign Training Center.

Shame on HDNet and the Octagon Nation Tour for jacking our swagger (6:08 mark) and props to Overeem for punking the last fan in line at the signing. The dude looked like he was going to cry.

Check Out the Awesome UFC 141 Trailer the Guys Who Produce ‘The Reem’ Made

(Look at Brock hiding out up there so he doesn’t get hit. Art really does imitate life.)

Sometimes the best highlights and promos are the ones made by fans of the sport. Promotions tend to tell you what they think you should be excited about whereas fans just seem to know what is exciting.

Case in point, the UFC 141: Overeem vs. Lesnar trailer below from our friends who produce “The Reem” documentary series. If you saw the latest episode of the show, you’ve already seen this spot, but it’s worth re-watching even if you have.

It’s a toss-up whether this fight or the upcoming championship bout between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez on Fox is the more heavily anticipated heavyweight tilt, but no matter which one you’re most looking forward to, this video should get you pumped for Overeem vs. Lesnar, or horsemeat vs. beef jerky as we like to call it.

Check it out after the jump.

‘The Reem’ Part II, Episode 6: Alistair Invades California


(Props: thereem.com)

In the latest episode of Alistair’s Overeem‘s web documentary “The Reem,” our hero takes a little business trip to Los Angeles and Las Vegas to see if America might be a good place to live someday. By the time he leaves, he has starred in a music video, met porn legend Ron Jeremy, beat up Antoni Hardonk for old time’s sake, watched two of his Golden Glory teammates kick ass at the first Muay Thai Premiere League event, bought a new suit, and signed a UFC contract to fight Brock Lesnar. That’s what you call efficiency. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.

GIF of the Day: ‘The Reem’ and Fez Are Not Impressed by LMFAO’s Antics


(Going sleeveless next to Alistair must be a humbling experience, huh Fez?)

First of all, no, we aren’t big LMFAO fans and that’s not how we discovered this little gem. It was brought to our attention by a Danish reader named Jacob Hansen who sent us a link to the video.

Now that we have that out of the way, we want answers how this strange pairing came to be. Did LMFAO put out a call for the scariest dude on the beach in L.A. that day and Alistair just happened to be chillin’ there with Handy Manny? There’s got to be an explanation. Until then, just take in the bizarre clip and wonder what they told “The Demolition Man” to act like for the shoot. Points for noticing Wilmer’s finger-snapping nod to MJ’s “Beat It” vid at the end.

If you can stomach listening to the song that accompanies this thing, check out the video after the jump.

Even Bob Sapp is Trying to Get Paid Reality Show Dough

With all of the MMA fighters trying their hands at reality television, it was inevitable that washouts like Butterbean and Bob Sapp would follow suit.

Sapp is pitching the show above to The Travel Channel in the hopes that they’ll pick it up long-term. Unfortunately for Sapp, besides maybe a handful of us and the Japanese, not many people, especially those who watch The Travel Channel could sit through more than one episode of “The Beast” making faces and and a fool out of himself.
