Andrei Arlovski and Alistair Overeem certainly weren’t known to be rivals prior to the booking of their UFC FN 87 scrap, but it looks like the teammates aren’t exactly on good terms now. Guess that’s not surprising.
Yes, the Jackson – Wink MMA heavyweights will throw down in the main event of Sunday’s card, which will take place in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Leading up the bout, Arlovski has claimed that Overeem asked to fight him, even though they both train out of the Albuquerque gym. Overeem, however, has denied that’s the case.
At any rate, when the two faced off today for media, it certainly looked as though tensions were high. You can watch the footage below.
