VIDEO: Stipe Miocic Retorts Alistair Overeem Questioning His Dedication
Stipe Miocic (I dare you to say that 10 times fast), rebuked Alistair Overeem’s criticism of him at the UFC 203 pre-fight press conference. Overeem believes Miocic has been too busy celebrating (somebody pass the champ a bottle of Dom) instead of training and when Alistair spoke at a pre-fight media scrum he said the following to Chuck Mindenhall of MMA Fighting.
“You keep track of things, and it’s not a difficult thing to keep track of things. You see things on social media, pictures. For example, I went to UFC 200, great event, Vegas. I didn’t go to any pool parties. I was training every day.”
“Stipe was going to different parties. You could see that. You could see that on his clothes, he was wearing different clothes. He’s at different party events; he’s acting crazy, having a drink in his hand. He has been celebrating his victory. And you know what? Who can blame him? He became the champion in record time. But while he was celebrating, I was working. I was training hard. And my life has been dedicated for the last two-and-a-half years. The last six months I have definitely put on a couple of notches more. We’re ready; we’re going to get that belt.”
Miocic disagrees and you can hear his retort (of course he disagrees, what are you retorted?) by checking out the video below.
Miocic and Overeem will try and punch each other’s head off this Saturday, September 10, 2016, in Cleveland. This will be the first title defense for Miocic and he meets a beast in the former Strikeforce, DREAM, and K-1 world champion. Somebody is leaving the arena with less teeth, less blood and less brain cells.
