Alistair Overeem (35-11) may not be heading to the UFC after all. Just hours after an alleged deal between the two sides was reported by Swedish outlet MMAnytt.se, the former Strikeforce champion rebuked the claim on his official Twitter account.
The Swedish website that posted that I'm on my way to Vegas to sign the UFC contract is WRONG!
The report indicated that Overeem was slated to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday morning to ink an exclusive contract with the UFC. If the allegations were true, it would likely symbolize the end of the Dutch kickboxer's 12-year career under the K-1 banner.
No statement has been released by the UFC or Team Golden Glory regarding the matter at this time. MMA Nation will provide you updates to this story as impending details are released.
