Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion and K-1 kickboxing kingpin Alistair Overeem, who signed a "long term" deal with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) back in September, has more than just a new promotion to call home.

He's also aligned himself with a new training camp.

Overeem, who will make his Octagon debut at UFC 141 on Dec. 30 in Las Vegas, against former division champion Brock Lesnar, announced on today's MMA Hour that he is now a member of "Sin City's" Xtreme Couture camp.

Apparently the Glory wasn't Golden enough for him.

Or it could be the breach of trust he alluded to in a public statement following his split with the Golden Glory fight camp, a place he's called home his entire career.

No longer.

Now, "Demolition Man" will be rubbing elbows with Randy Couture, Forrest Griffin, Gray Maynard and more. Anyone think this will help his wrestling defense?

How about it Maniacs, how will this help (or hinder) "The Reem's" success?

He needs to work on his rasslin and cardio so its as good a choice as any for that.

At least he is trying to work on his game unlike a certain Russian who thinks everything is fine as his career slides.

Already posted - but I guess it deserves its own thread?

I think he just clicks on their link.

The few sites I do surf for news, stories and general goofiness are mmafighting.com, f4wonline.com, mmajunkie.com, mmamania.com, ufc.com, bellator.com

If its not there it probably isnt important.

Good choice in camp IMO. wrestling is definately not a quick fix but he can learn a few tricks that may be able to help him.

Would think nothing but positives for uber with the camp switch but not enough time for him to prepare for Brock.
