Overeem is back in Holland to take care of his mum

After spending weeks scouting out places to live and train in America, Alistair Overeem is back in Holland to take care of his sick mother.

I am now training for Lesnar in Holland. I flew back about a week ago. I don’t want to go too deep into personal matters, but what happened was my mother is recoveringå from cancer and needs my support. She needs me in Holland over the next couple of weeks and I came back for her.

What I can say is that going back to Holland to be with my mother won’t be a distraction; it is actually stopping me from getting distracted. If I stayed in Las Vegas for this camp I would be constantly worried about her and my focus would have been compromised. Now I can train 100 percent, and know she’s just across town.

First the lawsuit with Golden Glory, now this illness. All Alistair needs now is for someone to whack him in the knee with a steel baton and it’ll officially be the best training camp ever!
