Alistair Overeem Is "Happy" To "Destroy" Derrick Lewis After Curtis Blaydes Does

Alistair Overeem would be glad to punish Derrick Lewis after Curtis Blaydes picks "The Black Beast" apart.

That is the message Overeem sent his fellow heavyweight contender at the UFC Vegas 9 post-fight press conference. Overeem defeated Augusto Sakai via fifth-round TKO after turning the tide in round four. Word got back to Overeem that Lewis was rooting against him.

“Definitely,” Overeem told media when asked about a potential Lewis fight. “Derrick Lewis is just talking crap. My teammate Curtis [Blaydes] is going to destroy him and I’d be happy to kind of do that after Curtis. Curtis first.”

UFC Vegas 9 took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, September 5. The event was headlined by ranked heavyweights Overeem and Augusto Sakai. The card aired on ESPN+. Keep up with Fightful for all your fight night coverage.
