Alistair Overeem has successful surgery, eyes move to Team Jackson-Winkeljohn in Albuquerque

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Overeem has parted ways with the Blackzilians (because of this) and is currently looking for a place to call home.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Alistair Overeem could find himself training alongside fellow 265-pound contender Travis Browne -- who stopped the hulking Dutchman back in August -- if "The Reem" follows through on plans to hook up with Team Jackson-Winkeljohn in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

That's according to a report from Ariel Helwani on UFC Tonight.

"Alistair Overeem has left the Blackzilians recently. He also had elbow surgery for a pinched nerve. A few weeks ago he met with Team Jackson-Winkeljohn to see if he could do his next training camp there. I spoke to Greg Jackson about it and he was going to have him come in and try it. So it's not set in stone, but Overeem could be headed to Albuquerque soon."

Overeem (37-13) has taken a break from mixed martial arts (MMA) after beating up Frank Mir earlier this year in New Jersey. In addition to yesterday's elbow surgery (details), "Demolition Man" has been bothered by an injured rib and does not have a return date.

When he does, a certain Samoan will be waiting.
