This is turning out to be a classic ‘loser leaves town match,’ eh?’ If Frank Mir loses, especially by knockout, you have to think he should be headed away from the sport, and if Overeem loses, well? Then what? K-1 still owes him cash… Maybe Glory on Spike TV? I’ll watch it.
This is what Overeem told Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour:
“If I lose to Frank Mir, I have to find something else to do,”
“I just lost my last fight and was just thinking about what I was going to do next and have a nice holiday. The fight is coming way more sooner than I expected…I was aiming for maybe December, January. But I’m a fighter and I love to be active.”
