“(He said that out of) jealousy,” Overeem said. “I can’t think of any other explanations. I have no relationship with the guy. All this talking to the media? I don’t get,” Overeem said. “Where I come from, if I have a problem, I’m coming directly to you and I’m asking you what’s up. For me, that’s like pussy behavior. Maybe I’m missing something and I’m just crazy. On the other hand, I do feel honored people are saying my name in the media. It must mean I have some sort of importance.”
“I have different priorities right now, but I could definitely see that fight happening in the future.”
Alistair Overeem tweeted out the following:
“that’s the cutest thing I’ve heard all day. He can be fake all he wants that’s on him. Seeing him would make me spit in his face.”
