Alistair Overeem Clears Any Rumors Concerning Blackzilians Departure

Alistair Overeem isn’t jumping ship from the Blackzilians.

On his Twitter page, Overeem caused a bit of a turn from the old rumor mill by posting several messages about his being in The Netherlands. The former Strikeforce heavyweight champion squashed talk of his departure from the Miami-based team Wednesday.

Overeem was removed from a planned bout with Junior dos Santos in May due to a training injury. He is expected to return this summer.

Well, thank the heavens Overeem is staying with the Blackzilians. That camp needs all the guys they can keep right now.
