Alistair Overeem Goes Dark In Terrifying Message To Ngannou

Alistair Overeem and Francis Ngannou.

Striking phenom Alistair Overeem will try to shut down rising heavyweight fighter Francis Ngannou at UFC 218. The two recently booked a fight against each other this week.

Francis Ngannou is riding an impressive 9 fight winning streak, with an undefeated record of 5-0 inside the octagon. That being said, Alistair Overeem has a message for the knockout machine, and it’s dark.

Using lyrics from an Eminem track, Overeem says he’s going to put Ngannou in the dirt, and more.

Over Instagram, Overeem stated:

“It’s on!!! 🔥Detroit I’m coming!! #ufc218 #detroit #eminem #gotosleep @ufc #ufc @mmapic”

The fighter then offered some lyrics from famed hip hop artist Eminem’s song “Go to Sleep.”

Here are the lyrics down below:

“I ain’t gonna eat, I ain’t gonna sleep
Ain’t gonna breathe, til I see, what I wanna see
And what I wanna see, is you go to sleep, in the dirt
Permanently, you just being hurt”

Alistair Overeem is currently riding a two fight winning streak. Most recently, Overeem edged out a majority decision victory over mixed martial arts veteran Fabricio Werdum at UFC 213.

UFC 218 is set to go down Dec. 2 inside the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan.

Here’s his original post.

It's on!!! 🔥Detroit I'm coming!! #ufc218 #detroit #eminem #gotosleep @ufc #ufc @mmapic
