This episode of Alistair Overeem‘s web-based mini documentaries opens with the Strikeforce heavyweight champ returning home from his media tour of the U.S. following his win over Brett Rogers at Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery last month. Meeting him at the airport are his teammate Marloes Coenen and his mom, Clair, who says she’s always afraid when he fights that he might get hurt, despite him being a "big boy."
Ubereem’s training partner — recent Strikeforce signee Siyar "Afghan Killa" (insert Josh Koshcheck or Jake Shields joke here) Bahadurzada makes a guest appearance in the vid, as does renowned Golden Glory coach Cor Hemmers who talks a bit about the strategy they employed for Alistair’s fight with Rogers.
Giving us his itinerary for the remainder of 2010, the English-born Dutch-raised fighter says he will fight for the DREAM heavyweight title, compete in the K-1 Grand Prix and prior to that will fight for Strikeforce one more time this year. What an underachiever.
Alistair seems like a relaxed dude who would be cool to hang out with. My opinion may change after this weekend’s MMA Expo in Toronto, depending on the reception I get from him.
