Speaking to FOX Sports Asia, Alistair Overeem weighed in on his upcoming fight against Alexei Oleinik and clearly mapped out his path to the UFC title.
Heavyweight legend Alistair Overeem has won titles in Dream, K1 and other organizations over the world but the UFC strap has always eluded him.
However, the 38 year old veteran is coming off a TKO victory over Sergey Pavlovic and is keen to continue building a head of steam by overcoming Oleinik and setting himself up for title contention.
“Three fight win streak,” he said, when asked what he would think would get him into the title picture.
But it’s not going to be a walk in the park for the Dutch fighter as he confesses that Oleinik is a friend, and that they even trained together two years back.
