Evidently, Alistair Overeem puts little stock in the current hierarchy of the UFC's heavyweight division. In a peculiar interview with Sportskeeda, Overeem, the UFC's seventh-ranked heavyweight, sounded off on the outlandish idea of entertaining a rematch with 37-year-old former heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar. "Yes, I expressed that after my bout with Frank Mir. I do believe that Brock Lesnar will be coming back, I don't want to call it from retirement, but he is a huge draw, big guy, sells tick read news >>

Addition by subtraction can be helpful. And there's always good, old-fashioned addition by addition. Cosmo Alexandre has conducted plenty of personal arithmetic over the past few weeks. The most recent variable in the equation came a little more than a week ago, when he got a call to step in to face Jo Nattawut on Friday at Lion Fights 17. “I was on the beach in Brazil, I was surfing,” the multi-time muay thai world champion told Bleacher Report. “It was only like 10 days away, but I said, ‘Of c read news >>

While the Blackzilians are seemingly on the rise as a team, one man who won't be there to help any longer is Kenny Monday. The former wrestling coach was let go this week by the team's manager, Glenn Robinson (h/t Bloody Elbow). As is the case with most firings, there are two sides to the story. First there's Monday's point of view. I was blindsided by [the release]. I really don't know what his reason is. I don't know if they are struggling financially, or what it is. I'm not sure what's going read news >>

Alistair Overeem is not only a “cocky” sparring partner, but according to former Blackzilian teammate Gilbert Burns, the UFC heavyweight contender is a sore loser. “He’s an arrogant man. He’s exactly how he looks to be,” Burns said on the Sexto Round Podcast, per MMAFighting.com's Guilherme Cruz. Glenn Robinson, CEO of Authentic Sports Management and Overeem’s former manager, announced in January during an appearance on The MMA Hour that Overeem had parted ways with the Blackzilian camp leading read news >>

Especially not former training partner Guto Innocente. Probably because he was injured by "Demolition Man" during a sparring session, one in which the Brazilian claims he was "kicking his ass."
