Overeem: I’m going to rest up
After losing to Ben Rothwell, Alistair Overeem finally scored a victory. During the first round he finished his fellow countryman Stefan Struve and showed he is still a force to recon with.
After this match Overeem decided to take a break to return even better.
“We had a couple slip-ups, I guess,” Overeem said. “A lot has happened. My life has been in high gear for the last six years. A lot has happened – a lot of good and a lot of bad – but here we are tonight with a very nice victory. It’s an accumulation of a lot of years of hard work. Tonight went very well, I’m going to rest up, and I’m going to sit down with my coaches. I’m not going to take too long off, but I am going to take some time off.”
