Alistair Overeem is Sick of Waking Up In Train Yards.

One of the most prolific unintentional visitors of train yards, Alistair Overeem, was once again awoken abruptly at the end of the line. It started with Bobby Hoffman in 2000. Started.

The Not-So-Flying Dutchman put on a good streak after that rookie loss. Somewhat cruelly, he was paired with UFC all-star Chuck Liddell as part of a UFC vs PRIDE bet. He fought like the younger man with nothing held back. Admirable, but mistaken.

It took a favorably mixed bag of wins and losses to earn a matchup with Mauricio Rua. We all know how that ended. There were other fights in between, but none left Alistair in need of waking. Kharitonov made it happen in 2007.

Alistair hadn't gone unconscious since the Bush administration. People were still deciding if Blu Ray or HD DVD was the future of gaming and video distribution. Last time Alistair Overeem went unconscious nobody had heard the name "Kardashian" ever.

It's 2013 now. Something has to be done to remind people. I didn't want to do this. I had to.
