Breaking many a heart of those who expected him to return to his kickboxing roots or perhaps even Bellator Alistair Overeem today confirmed via Twitter he was back in the UFC fold re-signing with the promotion.
After racking up three straight wins in his last three fights recent rumours suggested that he would be open to offers outside of the UFC when his contract recently expired. Today’s confirmation and with the UFC entering the Netherlands in May will hopefully mean we will see him return to action soon.
Just signed my new @ufc contract! 🙂 pic.twitter.com/lUQZO0ptLJ
