Lights Out! Watch video highlights of Alistair Overeem's knockout of Andrei Arlovski in Rotterdam

In what was a battle of teammates who aren't exactly friends, Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski swung some heavy leather during the main event of UFC Fight Night 87, which went down earlier today (Sun., May 8, 2016) in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

And you can sense the urgency from both men early on, as they were looking for the finishing blow from the opening bell.

Both men found success, though it was Overeem who ultimately landed the winning combination, doing his best Ralph Macchio impression by landing a Karate Kid-like kick to the chin of "The Pitbull," which spelled the beginning of the end for his Jackson-Winkeljohn stablemate.

Eat your heart out, Lyoto.

The victory gives Overeem his fourth straight win inside the Octagon and likely the next title shot in the Heavyweight division. At least that's what "The Reem" is expecting, as he says he'll be fighting the winner of the upcoming title fight between division king Fabricio Werdum and Stipe Miocic at UFC 198.

And he wants it to go down at Madison Sqaure Garden in New York at UFC 205 later this year.
