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.”
