Alistair Overeem Battled Food Poisoning Prior to UFC 209 Bout

Posted March 06, 2017

Lesnar later tested positive for a banned substance which prompted Hunt to file a lawsuit against UFC president Dana White, the UFC and Brock Lesnar in Nevada District Court. But that's not going to happen. They gave me no choice, what am I supposed to do? "Shut my mouth and get to the back of the bus and go to work?" The bottom line. Take away everything, they've actually injected needles in their ass and helped themselves to get here. Who will triumph this time around?

"[He] did not want to turn down the fight".

Alistair Overeem has beaten Mark Hunt with a massive knee halfway through round three.

Not only did Alistair Overeem knockout Mark Hunt in brutal fashion at UFC 209, but he did so while battling a case of food poisoning.

Although Hunt insisted his interactions with UFC staff have been cordial throughout fight week, he didn't sound happy about being in Las Vegas.

"I was forced to be here", Hunt told reporters. I haven't done nothing wrong here, so why should I be feeling like the outsider here?

Join us here for today's live blog of UFC 209, headlined by a welterweight title fight between Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson.

"It really irritates me that I have to share the octagon with guys that have cheated to get here", said Hunt.

"So, we went through all the steps necessary", Overeem explained.

"I have five fights left on my contract but who knows these days". All these other guys that cheat should be put on a pedestal like, 'That guy's a cheat. Although the "Super Samoan" is among the toughest veterans in the division, Hunt acknowledges concerns about the damage he might be doing to himself by fighting steroid-aided heavyweights. "I'm a fan of Mark, he's shown tremendous skill".

Something that earned White's respect even more. "I was low-energy. I put on my acting face, but I had like zero energy".

Woodley is widely expected to rely more on his wrestling on Saturday than he did when he first fought Thompson at UFC 205 in November. This fight was going to deliver, and deliver it did.
