UFC heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem has heard all the talk about his body composition changing over recent years.
Overeem, coming off a knockout of Andrei Arlovski, addressed those who doubt him on social media.
Weigh in Pic 👊🏽 I get a lot of 'you've lost weight', 'you look small' etc etc… Fighting in the K1 days it was easy to bulk up, cos the rounds were 3min and there were only 3 of them. Nowadays it's 5 rounds of 5min, with… Wrestling, clinching, takedowns, being taken down, standing back up and the whole shebang. It is funny tho.. As before I would want to be as strong as possible but now it has changed to be as small as possible. #Cardioiskey #fastandfurious and bytheway, I think it's safe to say – I'm still whooping strong 👊🏽 244lbs = 111kg 😇
The 35-year-old Overeem did fail a pre-fight drug test in 2012, testing for elevated levels of testosterone.
