Roderick Lindblom, Esq., attorney for Knockout Investments and Golden Glory, has issued a statement declaring that a Nevada District Court judge has issued an order today to withhold payment of over $241,000 to Alistair Overeem after Overeem’s highly-anticipated UFC 141 main event showdown with Brock Lesnar tonight.

The judgement comes in the wake of the lawsuit filed yesterday against Overeem by Knockout Investments and Golden Glory, Overeem’s former management team, for alleged breach of contract on the part of Overeem. Overeem parted ways with his longtime management team in Sept., stating the he felt he had been misled and taken advantage of financially by the group.

“As of this morning, a Nevada District Court issued an Order directing the issuance of a pre-judgment writ of attachment and garnishment on Overeem’s fight purse, which would indicate that KOI/GG’s claims are meritorious,” said Lindblom in his statement.
“It would have been ideal if a lawsuit could have been avoided; (Knockout Investments) and Golden Glory wish Alistair well in the fight,” continued Lindblom, “and, in fact, have a financial interest in his continued success. Unfortunately, my clients simply had no choice.”

Not sure what to make of this yet, but this could get interesting!
