I never intended to tell this story about Alistair Overeem. But I just saw a video of him being very disrespectful in talking about Sage Northcutt and it just pissed me off and reminded me of how much of a dick Overeem was to me when I met him back in 2011. I met Overeem at a fan expo in California which was held the day before Velasquez vs Dos Santos 1 at the Honda center. At that time I was a HUGE Overeem fan and was incredibly excited by the fact he was finally going to fight in the UFC. I had no intentions of going to this expo but Overeem put out a message on Twitter letting people know he would have a table set up there for a meet and greet. So I decided to go. My girlfriend at the time came up with an idea to have a cake made for him. We put an order in to have a cake finished the day before the expo reading "Welcome to the UFC! Kick ass and best wishes!" We made it early to the center and it was not crowded. We searched around for Overeem and found him with only three fans at his table. When we finally got our turn I introduced myself and my girlfriend to Overeem. I handed him the cake which he looked at and said thanks to my girlfriend. We spoke with him for five minutes. He basically ignored me the whole time and would really only answer my girlfriend's questions. He would go into great detail when answering my girlfriend's questions but would give me one word answers and then look away. Mind you my girlfriend didn't know shit about MMA. After five minutes of that bullshit I told my girl we had to leave. Alistair then put his hand out and shook my girlfriend's hand but did not extend the same courtesy to me. We stayed for another 3 hours at the expo and we made our way to leave. As we were making our way out we passed overeem's table which he was no longer sitting at. Next to his table was a tiny trash bin which contained the unopened and untouched cake we had given him earlier. Never again!
