Alistair Overeem Splits From Golden Glory

Alistair Overeem has left Golden Glory, according to his Twitter account.

“I would like to make a statement regarding the recent news of the separation from my long-time management Golden Glory,” Overeem wrote. “As with any relationship, there are good times and bad times – you have your common ground and your differences. As with any relationship, you have trust.

“When differences lead to a breach of trust, there’s no turning back and no way to continue a positive, working relationship. I don’t air my dirty laundry. I would appreciate the respect regarding my privacy to not disclose any further details on this matter.”

Golden Glory and Overeem, who just recently signed a contract with the UFC, have been working together for several years.

Last month, Golden Glory and Zuffa had issues in regards to how fighters were paid, and, Zuffa released four members of Golden Glory from the rosters of the UFC and Strikeforce – that included Overeem, who was the Strikeforce heavyweight champion at the time.

“I would like to than team Golden Glory for all the years we worked together and wish them success for the future,” Overeem also posted.

“The Reem” is scheduled to face Brock Lesnar in his UFC debut at UFC 141 in December. The winner will be named the No. 1 contender to the heavyweight title.
