“Alistair Overeem I thought we’ve teached him to take a beat like a man….not like a BITCH!” - Ramon Dekkers via Twitter
Golden Glory coach and legendary kickboxer, Ramon Dekkers, comments on Alistair Overeem’s loss to Antonio Silva last Saturday at UFC 156.
Overeem, who currently trains with the Blackzilians camp in South Florida, was a long time member of the Golden Glory fight camp based in the Netherlands.
During his time with the team, Overeem became the Strikeforce, Dream, and K-1 champion, however, in 2011, following the UFC’s release of all Golden Glory fighters over a policy issue regarding the way fighters are payed, Overeem left the Netherlands-based camp over what he termed, “a breach of trust.”
Overeem then sued the camp for $151,000, which he believed the camp owed him in back pay. Consequently, Golden Glory counter-sued Overeem stating that he never paid the camp its 30-percent commission following his victory over Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum.
The two parties would later settle out of court for an undisclosed sum.
