The heavyweight fighter has his sights set on the future, which includes a rematch against Francis Ngannou.
“Tonight was a short night,” Overeem said at the UFC Fight Night Beijing post-fight press conference. “I have a lot of respect for Francis Ngannou, but, yes, I’m very ready for a second fight with him.”
Ngannou and Overeem first collided in the co-main event of UFC 218 in 2017, with Ngannou picking up the first round knockout victory thanks to a vicious uppercut.
Overeem promises that if a rematch were to happen between himself and Ngannou, a different result would happen the second time around.
“I can promise you the second fight will be different from the first fight,” he said. “I made changes to my camp, I feel very energized, very motivated. The second fight will be different from the first fight, I guarantee that.”
Overeem also took to Twitter to call out Derrick Lewis on Monday morning.
I'm hearing you guys want to see a technician versus a brawler. What do you say Hot Balls?— Alistair Overeem (@Alistairovereem) November 26, 2018
There has been no word yet on whether or not Ngannou would accept a second bout with Overeem, as he defeated Curtis Blaydes by first round knockout in the main event of the same UFC Fight Night Beijing card.
