Alistair Overeem Biography
Alistair "The Demolition Man" Overeem was born May 17, 1980 and is a professional Dutch mixed martial artist and kickboxer. He is the current Strikeforce heavyweight champion.
After posting a 10-3 record in promotions such as RINGS, Overeem debuted in PRIDE on July 20, 2002, defeating Yusuke Imamura by TKO in just 45 seconds. Overeem would win two more fights in PRIDE before entering the 2003 PRIDE Middleweight Grand Prix at PRIDE Total Elimination 2003 and losing to future UFC light heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell in the quarterfinal match. Overeem rebounded to defeat Tomohiko Hashimoto at the Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2003-Inoki Festival in 36 seconds. On October 31, 2004 he fought Hiromitsu Kanehara, defeating him by TKO part-way through the first round at PRIDE 28 - High Octane. He lost his next fight against Brazilian Top Team fighter AntÃ´nio RogÃ©rio Nogueira.
In a recent 2008 interview, Overeem has stated that he would like to fight in the UFC in the near future. Overeem would ideally like a rematch in 2009 with Chuck Liddell to avenge his PRIDE Total Elimination 2003 knockout loss against him. Overeem was also seen at UFC 93 in Ireland talking to Dana White and indicating he is "ready" to fight in the UFC.
Overeem was rumored to make his first title defense against undefeated Heavyweight Brett Rogers on June 6 at Strikeforce: Lawler vs. Shields, however a hand injury scuttled plans for the fight. According to Golden Glory manager Bas Boon, Overeem had suffered a hand infection following a nightclub brawl early May 2009. According to Boon, Alistair and his brother Valentijn - both heavyweights - had been involved in an altercation that left five security staff needing hospital treatment and nearly cost Alistair his hand.
Overeem was scheduled to make his first Strikeforce Heavyweight Championship defense in a rematch against Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg, but had to pull out due to a hand injury, most likely caused from his nightclub brawl.
