THE REEM II Ep. 7: Alistair Overeem Joins Xtreme Couture To Train For Brock Lesnar

With Golden Glory behind him, Alistair Overeem has made the decision to train at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas for his upcoming UFC debut against Brock Lesnar at UFC 141. As Overeem explains in this 7th episode of the THE REEM II, he won’t make a permanent move to the US for another year or two, but he will have his UFC 141 training camp at Xtreme Couture, mainly because he felt the most welcomed there.

Overeem also attempts to clarify why he left Golden Glory in the video. He doesn’t divulge all the details, but it came down to things Golden Glory put in his contract during the UFC negotiations that were in their best interests, not his, that he found on his own. The dishonesty wasn’t something Overeem could tolerate so he left.

There’s definitely been a lot of distractions in his life leading up to the Lesnar fight. Enough for one to wonder if he’ll be as prepared as he should be when he enters the cage on Dec. 30.
