Alistair Overeem’s Former Coach Mocks His UFC 156 Outing

Alistair Overeem’s former coach Ramon Dekkers, who is an eight time world Muay Thai champion out of Golden Glory, thought his former pupils loss at UFC 156 was worthy of some mockery.

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva finished Overeem in the third round with a knockout blow. The loss also knocked him out of being the No. 1 contender to the heavyweight title.

Before Overeem joined Blackzilians last year, he was a longtime member of Golden Glory. In 2011, the UFC cut ties with Golden Glory fighters due to a scandal within the organization that involved payment of a fighter’s purse.

A few months after the decision by the UFC, Overeem left Golden Glory for what he referred to as “breach of trust.” Lawsuits followed, but both parties settled outside of court for an undisclosed amount.
