Alistair Overeem announced via Twitter that he has departed from Golden Glory. The management, on the other hand, might take legal actions.

Recent UFC signee, Alistair Overeem, announced on Twitter last Tuesday that he has split from his longtime MMA team — Golden Glory. In response to that, Golden Glory head – Bas Boon – informed MMA Junkie that they may take legal actions against the fighter.
