Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion and new Zuffa employee Alistair Overeem has left the Golden Glory fight camp, a place he's called home nearly his entire career.

"Demolition Man" Tweets:

"I would like to make a statement regarding the recent news of the separation from my long-time management Golden Glory. As with any relationship, there are good times and bad times - you have your common ground and your differences. As with any relationship, you have trust. When differences lead to a breach of trust, there's no turning back and no way to continue a positive, working relationship. I don't air my dirty laundry. I would appreciate the respect regarding my privacy to not disclose any further details on this matter. Again, I would like to thank team Golden Glory for all the years we worked together and wish them success for the future."

The timing is extremely coincidental considering Overeem was recently booked for a UFC 141 headliner against Brock Lesnar at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While details have yet to be revealed, "The Reem" cites a "breach of trust," so it's safe to say the separation was on less than favorable terms.

But does his recent contract signing with the UFC, outlined here, play a role in the dissolution of his relationship with Golden Glory?

Time will tell.

In the meantime, let's hear your take on this news. Will it affect "Demolition Man" on fight night? If so, for better or for worse? Too soon to tell?

Sound off!
