Overeem issues statement regarding litigation with former management

by Chris Nelson | source: sherdog.com
 

Sherdog.com on Tuesday obtained a formal statement issued by Overeem, 31, through the Los Angeles law firm of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, LLP.

“First, Alistair believes that the split between himself and Golden Glory should be kept between the parties,” the statement reads. “Although he has been tempted to expose ongoing problems with Golden Glory’s business, its poor relationship with some of its remaining fighters, and the deep betrayal he has experienced in recent years, he has chosen not to air the specifics of those facts.”

“We can say that Alistair and his legal team are very confident in the legal positions he has taken or will take in the California and Nevada litigation. Alistair is looking forward to having a judge or jury determine the merits of his position in this litigation.

“Although overtures regarding resolution of the lawsuits have been made by Golden Glory, Alistair believes it is important to see this matter to conclusion, not just for himself, but for other Golden Glory fighters, the UFC and its fans.”

So if he doesn't give you something to read while you're on lunch break @ Jiffy Lube where you top off fluids for a living, then he's hiding something?

“First, Alistair believes that the split between himself and Golden Glory should be kept between the parties,” I like that, it's a classy move. But wait, there's more!“Although he has been tempted to expose ongoing problems with Golden Glory’s business, its poor relationship with some of its remaining fighters, and the deep betrayal he has experienced in recent years, he has chosen not to air the specifics of those facts.”Oh, so he has spilt the beans then. Very passive agressive and transparent. "I'm don't want to talk badly about you.I have been tempted in the past to call you a liar, a thief and a cunt, but in the interest of keeping things civil I won't".

I'm more suspicious of the party that is constantly getting the press involved. I'm sure the details will come out in due course.

I'm reserving judgement until every aspect of this case comes out from the court session. Bas Rutten should do the same
