Let's keep this simple. Was Alistair Overeem screwed by Golden Glory? What does your instinct tell you?

Is he suing Golden Glory? Thought he claimed he was screwed by previous managers.

The whole pay us and then we pay our fighters smells fishy

The allegation is they withheld money owed 150K plus a hefty sighing bonus. I would peg the signing bonus at half a mil maybe?

I wonder how Hulk found out about all this?

I envision Joe Silva and Hulk in general conversation and Joe asking Hulk what he bought with that big signing bonus and he says "what bonus?"

I just watched the new episode of The Reem.

When it came time for Overeem to sign the contract that Boon had negotiated with the UFC, Boon was in Thailand when Reem went to Vegas to physically sign it. Overeem wanted it looked over one more time by Boon, but because he was in Thailand, Reem hired a lawyer to look it over for him, and that's how he found the scam.

BTW, CBear, you shud merge this with the actual Overeem/Golden Glory thread.
