Japan houd van Alistair Overeem. Door alle gevechten bij onder andere Pride Fighting Championship en verschillende kickbokspartijen bij de organisatie K-1, wordt de Heavyweight vechter gezien als een legende. The Reem is ook aanwezig in de Super Saitama Arena van Japan om te helpen met verschillende promotie-evenementen. Tijdens de ‘Media Day’ kreeg hij de vraag over de K-1 veteraan Gokhan Saki.

“I love coming to Japan. There’s a lot of memories. A lot of different promotions, a lot of fighters, coaches, a lot of experiences here. So, we continue now here with the UFC, yet another new promotion. I’m very curious about the show, very curious about the fans, how the energy will be. If we can capture the same energy as the previous shows, Pride and the K-1. Of course this is a little bit of a different audience than the American audience or the Brazilian audience. But I’m sure, they have a great fight card and my friend Gokhan Saki is always good for action. So, it’s going to be a great event I’m sure.”

 

Alistair Overeem en Gokhan Saki hebben elkaar al eens ontmoet op het canvas. Tijdens de K-1 World Grand Prix 2010 semi finale inTokyo, Japan won Overeem met een technische knock-out. De scheidsrechter stopte de partij nadat Saki zijn arm brak.

Overeem sprak ook met MMA Plus:

“Saki is a very intelligent fighter. At the time of the K-1, was very, very ahead of the game with a lot of technical aspects. I would say that he is the most technical K-1 heavyweight and light heavyweight, for that matter. His speed, his combinations He’s actually a light heavyweight, but he was fighting heavyweight, he was fighting with the big guys. So, I have full confidence in him and his team that he will do great in analyzing the game and analyzing what he needs to get the victory this Saturday.”

Saki staat aankomende nacht in de Octagon van de UFC om te strijden voor de winst. Hij staat ingeroosterd tegen Henrique da Silva op de main card van de avond.
