Alistair Overeem Clears Air Regarding Departure From Blackzilians

Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem sparked some rumors Wednesday, posting that he was in The Netherlands training.

Overeem, who joined the Blackzilians in Florida, quickly seized the spread of any talk that he was leaving the camp on Twitter.

“2 clear the air, I’m still a (Blackzilian),” Overeem posted. “In (The Netherlands) 2 (see) my daughter and during my stay training in famous Mike’s gym. Miami (see you) in a couple weeks.”

Overeem was expected to return to the Octagon in May against Junior dos Santos, but a training injury will keep him from making the bout. No definite timetable has been set for his next fight, though summer has been mentioned.
