Alistair Overeem facing misdemeanor battery charge in Nevada

It looks like Brock Lesnar wasn’t the only person Alistair Overeem got into a physical confrontation with while in Las Vegas for UFC 141 where he faced the former UFC heavyweight champ in main event action.

According to a police report, Overeem is alleged to have shoved a woman in her face at approximately 3:00 AM on January 2, 2012, sending her stumbling backwards. He was not arrested at the time and instead issued a citation.

Overeem will face the music in court on February 21 answer to the charges. If found guilty “The Demolition Man” could face up to a $1,000 fine and six months behind bars.

“There are two sides to this story and we intend on vigorously defending this. Alistair maintains his innocence,” said Overeem’s defense attorney in a statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

No official comment on the matter has issued by the UFC or Overeem himself.
