The cops will do there job. You weren't in hostile territory in a country foreign to you. Walk away and respect yourself. I am surprised no one on here has actually talked about this but obviously he won't fight Fedor for quite some time! The guards were **** in this case but in America he would be in prison for hospitalizing 5 bouncers! Thats a big task considering you don't see many small bouncers....hmm juice questions again!

Strikeforce originally stated that Alistair Overeem wouldn't be able to defend his title due to a hand injury he suffered during training. If true, then Overeem has some revolutionary training methods.

According to a recent blog post by current manager Bas Boon, as first reported by Fighter's Only, the current Strikeforce heavyweight champion suffered a hand infection after being involved in a nightclub brawl with security staff that wound up sending five bouncers to the hospital.

"Alistair attended some famous dance club with his brother Valentine," said Boon. "Went to the toilet and did not have coins to pay the toilet woman. Alistair told her he would pay a euro when he came back, because he did not have change. Then the security guard who was near by started to get involved. Brother Valentine saw the incident and also started asking what the problem was. They offered to pay, but by then 6 security guards came over surrounding them. The Overeem brothers were asked to leave, Alistair was already outside when he saw his brother Valentine fighting. Valentine still was discussing the situation on his way outside with one of the security guards hit Valentine in the face with a flash light. Three security guards dived onto Valentine and brother Alistair wanted to go back inside to help his brother. This resulted in five security guards in the hospital."

A reluctant Overeem went to the hospital for a cut on his hand only after consulting with his management and teamates. It turns out that the cut was more severe than Overeem first thought.

"It was only because of the management pushing him to go to the hospital that he saved his hand," said Boon. "When he finally got his injury checked, he was advised to stay a few days in the hospital. They told him if he would have come any later he would have lost his hand."

No word on recovery time or when we'll see Overeem back in action, but Strikeforce officialls have notified that Overeem is expected to make a full recovery and fight for them at a future date.
