Anthony Johnson Calls Alistair 'Oversh-t': 'Biggest Pussy in the Heavyweight Division'

Former Blackzilians’ teammates Anthony Johnson and Alistair Overeem exchanged some choice words for one another, their choice of word: ‘pussy’. ‘Rumble’ Johnson played on Overeem’s name, calling him ‘oversh-t’ and ‘the biggest pussy in the heavyweight division’ on social media Tuesday. This stemming from a comment made by Overeem in an article by MMAJunkie, leading to the following response from the UFC light heavyweight:

This was Johnson’s reply to an article posted on MMA Junkie, in which Overeem responded to allegations made by ‘Rumble’ after details revealed that the recent injury suffered by UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones—forcing him out of the UFC 178 main event against Daniel Cormer—was caused by Jones’ new teammate. Johnson had previously implied that Overeem intentionally injures his teammates.

“All this talking to the media? I don’t get,” Overeem said. “Where I come from, if I have a problem, I’m coming directly to you and I’m asking you what’s up. For me, that’s like p-ssy behavior. Maybe I’m missing something and I’m just crazy. On the other hand, I do feel honored people are saying my name in the media. It must mean I have some sort of importance.”

Overeem was a former team member of the Blackzilians’ camp in Boca Raton, Florida, which included top fighters such as Rashad Evans, Eddie Alvarez, and Anthony Johnson. Using the word ‘teammate’ loosely, as reports coming out of the camp were that Overeem would seldom participate in training with the rest of the fighters.

Overeem has since moved on and began training with Team Jackson-Winkeljohn in Albuquerque, New Mexico—and one of his training partners is the current champion, Jones.

There seems to be a real feud brewing between the two despite being in different weight classes.

However for now, Alistair Overeem is focused on a scheduled fight this Friday at UFC Fight Night 50, against Ben Rothwell.
