Alistair Overeem: UFC’s Purchase of Strikeforce is a Good Development
UFC's purchase of Strikeforce gave Alistair Overeem a reason to be excited for the MMA's future.
After UFC’s purchase of Strikeforce was officially announced last weekend, Alistair Overeem was among the many people who were caught by surprise. But though completely shocked, the Strikeforce heavyweight champ was excited about what this could mean in the future.
And when asked if this can bring a positive or negative vibes to MMA fans, Alistair Overeem is on the optimistic side.
“It depends. I’m a positive guy. I see things through a positive lens. It can be really, really the best thing [that] ever happened to the sport, if it’s used positive, and I see that happening. If it’s used negative, then it’s going to be a downfall. But I don’t see that happening. I see this as a good thing, a good development, so I see the sport growing.”
Does this also mean that fans will see Alistair Overeem’s name against notable UFC fighters? The champion only replied that his focus is on the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix as of the moment.
