When I Get Back
Posted On:9/20/2011 4:34pm
When Alistair Overeem made the decision to leave behind the two organizations in which he had won heavyweight titles -- Strikeforce and K-1 -- and sign an exclusive agreement with the UFC, one consideration is that he knew the UFC would actually pay him, something that hasn't been the case for all his fights.
Overeem said on The MMA Hour that he still hasn't been paid for winning the K-1 World Grand Prix Final in 2010.
"They didn't pay me," Overeem said. "It's a lot of money, I can tell you that."
Overeem said he expects to take legal action against FEG, the parent company of K-1, but he's skeptical that he'll ever collect what he's owed.
he later discusses the negotiations with both the Zuffa-owned Strikeforce and ultimately the UFC and his potential future opponents.
Hopefully, the man gets paid.

I knew that oversized novelty check looked suspicious! No watermarks!

They forgot to sign the back...
