While most fighters in most gyms, you’d think they’d all come together as friends. That’s not necessarily so with Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski, who train alongside one another at Jackson-Wink MMA in New Mexico.
Although they both have fights coming up – Arlovski faces Josh Barnett on Saturday in Germany, while Overeem challenges for the heavyweight title at UFC 203 in Cleveland next week – the two haven’t been helping each other train.
Of course, that could have something to do with the fact that they ended up having to fight each other earlier this year, with Overeem coming out on top and earning his UFC heavyweight title shot.
Overeem said he feels no ill will towards Arlovski, but isn’t so sure his Jackson-Wink teammate feels the same toward him.
