The current Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem was recently involved in a fight at a dance club. According to the report, both Alistair and his brother Valentine were being kicked out because of not having money to use the bathroom. One of six security guards hit Valentine on the head with a flash light and that’s when things got out of control. Alistair beat up 5 of the guards and was later brought to the hospital for a hand fracture. Doctors say he could have lost his hand if he did not get to the hospital sooner. Due to this, Alistair was immediately forced off the next Strikeforce fight card which was scheduled to take place on June 6.
Snip from the report courtesy of Fighters Only Magazine:
Alistair attended some famous dance club with his brother Valentine. Went to the toilet and did not have coins to pay the toilet woman. Alistair told her he would pay a euro when he came back, because he did not have change. Then the security guard who was near by started to get involved,” he wrote.
“Brother Valentine saw the incident and also started asking what the problem was. They offered to pay, but by then 6 security guards came over surrounding them. The Overeem brothers were asked to leave, Alistair was already outside when he saw his brother Valentine fighting.
“Valentine still was discussing the situation on his way outside with one of the security guards hit Valentine in the face with a flash light. Three security guards dived onto Valentine and brother Alistair wanted to go back inside to help his brother. This resulted in five security guards in the hospital.”
In the meantime, Alistair Overeem was complaining of a painful cut on his hand and went to hospital at the urging of Golden Glory team mates.
“It was only because of the management pushing him to go to the hospital that he saved his hand. When he finally got his injury checked, he was advised to stay a few days in the hospital. They told him if he would have come any later he would have lost his hand,” said Boon.
