UFC Quick Quote: Alistair Overeem would run his own camp, then lose and blame everyone but himself

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Perhaps whatever it was Alistair Overeem was looking for in Golden Glory, and then again in Blackzilians, can finally be found at Jackson's MMA.

"Alistair was one of those guys who was on the team but never really committed to being part of it. He would run his own camps, bring in his own guys, train by himself, so him going somewhere else won't make much difference, it isn't a huge loss. The funny thing was, he would run his own camps and bring his own people in, then go out there and lose and blame everybody but himself. So now if he goes to Jackson's and doesn't learn to open up and step out of himself then he is going to get the same results... Honestly speaking, I don't even know why he wants to join a team. All he is going to do is bring in his own guys so I don't know why he is even joining a team rather than making his own team."

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight and full time Blackzilian, Rashad Evans, tells John Joe O'Regan that his camp won't be lamenting the loss of heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem, who jumped ship last year after back-to-back losses to Bigfoot Silva and Travis Browne (details). "The Reem" was training in Thailand for his most recent win over Frank Mir and will once again find himself paired off with "Hapa," only this time it will be as a teammate at Team Jackson-Winkeljohn in Albuquerque, New Mexico. That's assuming Overeem learns how to be a team player, something "Suga" (and this past partner) suggests has not always been his strong suit. Do you like his chances?
