Derrick Lewis Argues Alistair Overeem Has “No Heart”

Some might say that Alistair Overeem’s recent run and return to the top of the heavyweight ranks is an indication of his determination and toughness, but Derrick Lewis may not see it that way.

Overeem has rebounded from a 1-3 stretch, and has in turn, won three straight bouts. The fighter has returned to the title shot mix after heading to Jackson-Wink MMA  in Albuquerque.

Well, recently Lewis appeared on MMA Junkie.com Radio, following his one sided win over Damian Grabowski earlier this month. During the segment, the powerful heavyweight had this to say about the “Reem” (quote via MMA Junkie.com):

“I look over if they have heart,” Lewis said, while discussing what he looks for in potential opponents. “If fighters don’t have heart, I want them. If I see they’ve got weakness and they don’t have that go like I’ve got, that’s the type of fighter I want.

“No, Overeem don’t have no heart. He runs in his fights.”

Those sound like fighting words…Overem is scheduled to battle Andrei Arlovski on May 8th in the UFC’s upcoming Rotterdam card.
