UFC Quick Quote: Overeem was not a Blackzilian, he was 'Team Alistair'

Jeff Bottari

There's no "I" in "Reem."

"I ain't got not beef with him, I just don't care about him. He's not a Blackzilian, he ain't no Blackzilian. Don't even put him in that category. He's Team Alistair, that's it."

Authentic Sports Management CEO Glenn Robinson said that Alistair Overeem is welcome back to the Blackzilians camp (read it) after skipping town to train for UFC 169 in Thailand (results), but it doesn't sound as if everyone at Florida's Boca Raton-based fight camp feels the same way. Chief among them is Anthony Johnson (via FOX Sports), who will make his Octagon return against Phil Davis at UFC 172 (details). Apparently "The Reem" was in business for himself, according to the former World Series of Fighting (WSOF) headliner, a sentiment echoed following the Dutchman's split with Golden Glory back in 2011. While Johnson insists he has no beef with Overeem and doesn't compete in the same weight class, "Rumble" does hold a win over a former heavyweight champion. Just saying.
