UFC 152 weekend is just shy of a week away, and the full Toronto MMA extravaganza won’t be complete without meeting one of the UFC’s biggest (literally and figuratively) stars, live and in person.
That’s right, Alistair Overeem visits the Greater Toronto Area on September 22 at the Kombat Arts Training Academy, and the countdown continues here.
Today we take a look back at Overeem’s historic victory at the 2010 K-1 World Grand Prix tournament. The K-1 title, when combined with his world championships in big show MMA leagues Strikeforce and Dream, contributed to The Reem’s distinction as the most decorated heavyweight in history.
Catch the hard-hitting action below where Overeem battles some of the world’s best kickboxers in one night: Tyrone Spong, Gökhan Saki and the legend Peter Aerts.
