Chalk this up to further drama coming out of the now severed relationship between Golden Glory and Alistair Overeem. In a press release dated November 10th from the Law Offices of Roberick J. Lindblom, they explain with a bit more detail why Alistair Overeem has chosen to sue both Knock Out Investments (KOI) and Golden Glory. It appears that KOI and GG are ready to fire back at Alistair and are looking to recoup losses from Alistair breaching his contract with them.
This lawsuit is a preemptive action on the part of Mr. Overeem and his counsel in response to KOI’s recent notification to Mr. Overeem of numerous violations by him of his management agreement with KOI, including but not limited to his failure to pay commissions for past fights and endorsement deals secured by KOI and Golden Glory.
KOI and Golden Glory are respected organizations committed to securing the best fight deals and training for their team of fighters. Mr. Overeem's continued suggestions to the contrary are scurrilous and will be vigorously defended in the proper forum.
I must say, if Mr. Lindblom's office continues to drop gems like "scurrilous" I'd feel bad for Ubereem.
