After UFC Vegas 18, they announced that there are several who will be more than six months outside of action. It should be noted that, among them, there is precisely Alistair Overeem, who was knocked out by Alexander Volkov. The experienced and legendary martial artist did not have his best image inside the Octagon and will sadly be out for 180 days. Like him, there are six others.
The medical suspensions they arrived a few hours ago at the offices of UFC, so they quickly viralized the information. For this reason, several were left with their mouths open, understanding that many months will have to be out of action. Precisely the one who made the most noise was Alistair Overeem, who is already over 40 years old and those months are vital in the closing of his career.
Alistair Overeem (47-19 MMA, 12-8 UFC) and Alexander Volkov (33-8 MMA, 7-2 UFC) went viral. At UFC Vegas 18, both starred in the event and were filled with “likes” on the networks. After a shocking knockout, the Russian turns all eyes to an illusion for the title. Without a doubt, the Dutch legend walked away from his opportunity for the belt, which his rival affirmed for his future.
