Overeem is currently training Colorado’s Elevation Fight Team, but before that, he trained with Golden Glory and JacksonWink gyms. Speaking to Luke Thomas on the MMA Hour, he said that he was always valued the benefits of the change in scenery.

If I had stayed in one or two places, I’d probably be retired by now,” Alistair Overeem said Monday on The MMA Hour. “Because as a fighter, you can get compromised. It’s not for everybody, but I have been compromised a couple of times in my career, and to me, it was do or die time. I had to make some changes. Sometimes I didn’t want to make changes, but I still had to make changes if I wanted to continue my career.” Overeem said.

Let’s not forget, I’ve been training for 26 years, competing for 22 years. My first fight was in 1997. So to me, that’s obvious: You’re going to have at least a couple different camps,” Overeem explained.
