Alistair Overeem keen on joining Team Jackson MMA

Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Heavyweight Alistair Overeem is looking to make the switch to Team Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA, the much lauded gym of Mixed Martial Arts training legend Greg Jackson which functions out of Albuquerque, according to reports.

The Dutchman recently quit his Florida based team The Blackzilians, where he had trained for a very long time and now, Mixed Martial Fans and critics have some sort of clue where the Demolition Man plans to sharpen his fighting skills for the foreseeable future.

According to some sources, Greg Jackson, the head coach of the gym has acknowledged the reports of Overeem coming to train with him.

Jackson has always been associated with some of the greatest names and champions in the history of the UFC including Georges St. Pierre, Frank Mir and Jon Jones and his current lineup also includes some of the biggest names in the sport and the promotion at the moment.

Ranked at number six in the Heavyweight list, Alistair Overeem has a record of 2-2 since his move to the promotion but he has secured his biggest win in that time with a victory over Frank Mir recently. And although some people, including UFC boss Dana White thought he underperformed in that fight, there are many others who thought the Dutchman looked his best in a long time.

Alistair Overeem has always been lauded as one of the fiercest strikers in his long career as a professional but there have often been question marks about his skill to take the fight to decision and his cardio. And with him joining the stable of Greg Jackson, there are always chances that Overeem will become the challenger the UFC hoped he would become by ironing out some of the minor details that had been missing from his armor.
