Golden Glory responds to Alistair Overeem’s lawsuit
Nov 11, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
Alistair Overeem’s former management team has thrown a counterpunch at the current UFC fighter, alleging that he owes them money from their work and slamming his lawsuit as “scurrilous.”
A statement released to MMA Fighting by Roderick J. Lindblom, legal counsel for Knock Out Investments (KOI) and Golden Glory — Overeem’s former management team — claims that Overeem filed his lawsuit as a preemptive action after KOI informed him of numerous violations of their deal, including his failure to pay commissions for past fights and endorsement deals.
“KOI and Golden Glory are respected organizations committed to securing the best fight deals and training for their team of fighters,” the statement read. “Mr. Overeem’s continued suggestions to the contrary are scurrilous and will be vigorously defended in the proper forum.”
