Overeem and Arlovski Have “No Bad Vibes”


n the main event of UFC Fight Night 87 this past weekend, Alistair Overeem TKO’d Andrei Arlovski in the second round, a man who was his teammate and he shared coaches with.

Although they were teammates, Arlovski and Overeem both expressed the fight between them wouldn’t be a big issue and they did not really train together. Overeem also said after the fact he expects to go back to Team Jackson-Winklejohn and that, at least on his end, there are no bad vibes:

“This wasn’t a good moment, the whole thing was not good for the team, but I’ve done the best I could to keep the energy positive,” he said. “It doesn’t have to disrupt anybody. I think the respect is there. It’s not going to be gone. I mean, we’re obviously going to see each other in the gym. For me there’s no bad vibes.”

After the fight, the two big men shook hands, and Overeem said they share respect for each other.

“There was a handshake, there was a lot of respect,” he said. “We looked each other in the eyes.”

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
