Alistair Overeem became a new member of Glory

After breaking off a nine-year deal with the UFC earlier this year, Alistair Overeem hasn’t said much about whether it means the end of his more than successful career or he’ll give it another try. Interest in his services certainly existed, and after weighing the bids he chose what his next move would be.

Namely, he decided to return to where he achieved his first great successes and set out to build popularity. He returned to kickboxing by signing a contract with Glory, currently a leading player in the field of that martial art.

Glory President Pierre Andurand looked overjoyed after he could announce that Overeem was a member of their organization. They are aware in Glory what kind of fighter they got and what he can bring to their organization "We are extremely excited that Alistair Overeem has approached Glory.

Alistair is one of the most versatile and respected heavyweights of all time." "This is a historic day for the sport today, but also one of the most important for Glory fans. We have fights that everyone wants to see," Glory President Pierre Andurand said.

"Reem" has recorded ten wins and four defeats in his kickboxing career, the most prolific part of which was from 2008 to 2010, and stopped playing the sport after winning the prestigious K-1 Grand Prix tournament in 2010.

Stats The names within those ten victories are impressive, as he defeated Peter Aerts (twice), Badr Hari, Tyrone Spong, Gokhan Saki, and Dzevad Poturak. The 41-year-old Dutchman is now coming to a very high-quality division that has brought kickboxing back to the headlines of martial arts, and within which are the main stars Rico Verhoeven, Badr Hari, Benjamin Adegbuyi, Jamal Ben Saddik, Levi Rigters, but also Antonio Plazibat.

It is currently unknown when Alistair should debut, but this year it should definitely happen. Let us remind you that Overeem is no longer a member of the UFC after he recorded a couple of infamous fights. Overeem is no longer in his prime and most are aware that he cannot have performances as he used to, and that it is unthinkable for him to be in the same form as he used to be.

He probably made a good move, as he wants to recall the glorious days of his K1 career. Maybe he will be dominant again and show that he still has the art of strength and that he is still in great shape.After breaking off a nine-year deal with the UFC earlier this year, Alistair Overeem hasn’t said much about whether it means the end of his more than successful career or he’ll give it another try.
