Sounds like Brock Lesnar wasn't the only opponent Alistair Overeem may have faced over the New Year's Eve weekend.

A report today from Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal brings word that "Demolition Man" blew up on a casino patron in "Sin City," allegedly making physical contact with her. He was not arrested at the scene but later issued a citation and must appear in court to answer these charges on Feb. 21, 2012.

If convicted, "The Reem" could face a steep monetary fine and up to half a year in the clink.

Of course it's imperative we remember that Overeem is innocent until proven guilty. As of now, details are sketchy and team Reem has vehemently denied the accusation. No statement has been released from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), where he currently competes in the heavyweight division.

Stay tuned to MMAmania.com for more details on this developing story as they become available.
