The Dutchman Alistair Overeem is the ex-champion of Strikeforce in heavyweight, DREAM and K-1 and the only sportsman in the history who managed to hold three titles in MMA and kickboxing at the same time. According to the magazine Fight !, Overeem is the fifth in the list of the best heavyweights in the world of MMA.
Didn’t want to fight
As a child, young Alistair Overeem didn’t dream about the career of a fighter. He was much closer to athletics and basketball, but his parents insisted that he and his brother learn to fight to be able to stand up for themselves. Alistair didn’t like these trainings and tried in every possible way to avoid them, however he eventually got involved.

In his youth, Alistair Overeem liked to visit bars, where temperamental often came into fights with violent visitors. Perhaps due to the fact that in the veins of Alister flows hot Jamaican blood (along the lines of his father). In one of these fights, the sportsman received a lacerated wound on his cheek, on which was then applied to 20 sutures. So his famous scar appeared.
