Alistair Overeem is a renowned mixed martial artist. He has been competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) since 2016 and is currently a heavyweight champion. He was born on May 17, 1980 in Hounslow, England to Dutch parents. His family then relocated to Netherlands when he was three years old.
From an early age, Alistair had an interest in martial arts and began training kickboxing at the age of 15 under Cees de Jong at Jaap Visser’s gym in Utrecht. During his teenage years he competed regularly as an amateur fighter before making his professional debut for the Rings promotion at 18 years old against Remco Pardoel on May 28th 1998 which he won by majority decision earning him his first world title belt just two months after turning professional.

Since joining ranks ultimate fighting championship Alistair has gone undefeated except single blip 2017 where lost knockout Alexander Volkov despite being very competitive affair up until point KO occurred meaning overall record stands 16 wins 11 losses 2 draws impressive if you consider fact many those defeats came early stages career prior turn thirty whilst still learning ropes sport; having said all aforementioned still plenty more left tank 33 year old looks set continue dominant run form inside octagon which will no doubt take wherever wants go next whatever path may be …
