Overeem sues ex-management

source: tmz.com

According to the lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Overeem stupidly agreed to give his managers 35% of his pre-tax income in exchange for their services -- but the managers failed him miserably.

Overeem claims the managers have refused to pay him more than $151,000 in earnings -- including a bigtime bonus he was supposed to rake in when he signed with the UFC.

Overeem is suing for unspecified damages -- and he wants a court order to break his contract with the management team ASAP.

I'm happy reem is committed to the UFC. He has changed camps and bullshit management. Golden glory wasn't taking care of him right at all. Look at the k1 debacle where reem is owed 1 million plus and reem himself had to take legal action while golden glory did dick all. And at 35% they can eat a dick. Bottom line is that reem is a draw and comes to fight. His upcoming UFC run will pay huge bucks win or lose. Also him leaving gg may be the catalyst for others to jump ship as well

He’s either always been paying 35% commission and now “someone” whispered in his ear, he’s mad when all he needs is a contract lawyer on retainer for 100,000 per annum, or GG snuck this new whopping fee into this contract only, and he never bothered reading it and signed it.Can’t be anything else.It's a developing trend slowly but surely.inb4ZUFFA FIGHT MANAGEMENT LLC gets registered. :-)

 It's unfortunate all of this is happening right before he makes his UFC debut in the biggest fight of his career. I'm with sadisticsoldier in saying that I hope he has his eyes on the prize because it would be a shame to work your way up to the UFC and lose a fight that, in my opinion anyways, he should easily win. Just hope he's getting the proper training and help during this transition.

What exactly does that include though? being his manager, does that cover all his training costs training at the GG gym? Still though he was getting ripped off and he wised up.LOL at the people who were backing GG before, it was Zuffa in the wrong, Zuffa should pay GG and let them pay the fighters. I guess some will take the side of Satan himself if he was against Zuffa.
