Nyligen meddelades det att Alistair Overeem skrivit på nytt kontrakt för UFC, då hans förra gick ut efter TKO-segern över Junior dos Santos under ”UFC on FOX 17″. Här kan ni se vad Overeem hade att säga om det nya kontraktet och varför han valde att skriva på för UFC igen, via ”The MMA Hour”:

After the JDS fight I was a free agent, but I am happy to report that I re-signed with UFC. They have been very cordial toward me and I am very happy and very excited and I feel very appreciated. These are all factors to reach the deal.

UFC is the prime fight promotion in the world. I didn’t talk to anybody else. But I can tell you that UFC has the best fighters, I consider myself the best fighter and I belong in UFC. That’s how simple it is.

I looked at everything, you have to be appreciated, respected, and finances is a part of the equation, as well. But the big part is the UFC title, that’s the one that is missing. I have a few good years left in me and that is what is missing. You have to go for the highest and I believe it’s the UFC strap.

Härnäst ser vi Alistair gå huvudmatch vid ”UFC: Rotterdam” som äger rum den 8 maj, men vem han kommer att möta där återstår dock att se.
