Leading up to UFC Fight Night 87, the narrative’s been that Alistair Overeem called for a fight with his teammate, Andrei Arlovski, but “The Reem” says not the case.

The heavyweight contenders will throw down in the main event of this Sunday’s card, which will take place in Overeem’s home country, the Netherlands. As soon as the bout was announced, eyebrows throughout the MMA world were raised, since both men train at Jackson-Wink MMA in Albuquerque.

In a new, “Head to Head” segment the UFC has posted, Overeem denied that he called out Arlovski, and that for him, it’s all “business”.

You can watch the segment, which also includes Dan Hardy sharing his thoughts on the fight, below.
