One of the big names in MMA history, Alistair Overeem, won a significant victory over Walt Harris on the day he turns 40. After the triumph in the main event of the event held this Saturday (16), in Jacksonville (USA), the veteran stated that he still dreams of disputing the heavyweight belt (up to 120.2 kg.), Which today belongs to Stipe Miocic.
“I am still looking for the belt. I can say that I am in the final stages of my career. So, I can say that these two things are on my mind: end my career and another fight for the belt”, said the ‘giant’ in a press conference after the show.
In the UFC since December 2011, Alistair fought for the title on one occasion, in 2016. In the episode, the Dutchman switched forces with Miocic in the primary fight of UFC 2013. Against the American, Overeem failed to succeed and ended up defeated by knockout at the end of the first round.
Celebrating his birthday this Sunday (17th), the Dutchman reached the mark of 65 fights in his MMA career. Professional in the sport since October 1999, the fighter today has 46 victories, 18 defeats and a clash with no result.
