n this Full Contact Fighter exclusive, correspondent Aaron Tru caught up with UFC heavyweight contender and former Strikeforce and K-1 Grand Prix heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem at the K-1 fighter tryouts in Venice Beach, Calif. Tru pushes the envelope and asks Overeem about his thoughts on other UFC superstars, including reigning Junior dos Santos, and the growing use of performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) in MMA, something that Overeem was recently suspended for.
"I’m going to beat whoever that is. I don’t care. Whoever it is, whoever you guys want to see me beat, I’m going to beat them in August. After that, I believe Alistair Overeem will be issued his license back December 27. That makes a perfect time for me to fight him New Year’s Eve, making me the number one contender after I beat his f---ing ass. I’m going to beat him and then I’m going to fight whoever the champion is after that. That is my plan."
