Alistair Overeem at UFC 141Alistair Overeem and his former management team at Golden Glory have settled their respective lawsuits against one another.

Golden Glory’s lead counsel Roderick Lindblom informed MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday that both lawsuits have been dismissed after the two sides came to an “amicable resolution.”

After splitting from his former team and management, Overeem filed a suit in 2011 alleging that Golden Glory hadn’t paid him some of his earnings due, as well as a bonus from when he signed with the UFC, among other issues. Golden Glory fired back, claiming that Overeem’s suit was a preemptive strike against them because they believed that Overeem had neglected to pay them commissions that he contractually agreed to.

All of that friction has now come to an end.

“Everyone worked extremely hard to resolve these matters so that Management/Promoter KOI/Golden Glory and Bas Boon can walk away and move forward with the Glory World Series Promotion in Europe, Japan and the USA,” said Lindblom. “And Alistair Overeem can concentrate on his fighting career with his new manager Glen Robinson at Authentic Sports Management and his new team the Blackzilians.”

Details of the settlement were not disclosed.

Overeem, who is expected to return from a drug test related suspension at the beginning of 2013, is already slated to face Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva at UFC 156 on Feb. 2 over Super Bowl weekend in Las Vegas.
