Alistair Overeem is also a champion in sumo wrestling and you probably didn’t even know

If any of you guys see Overeem finally descend to earth from whatever space ship he’s rocking in 2012, tell him to accept my friend’s request on Xbox Live. I’m not going to bother him, nor do I want to teach him the intricacies of using armor-lock in Halo: Reach. Not at all. I just want to congratulate the guy on a rather successful K-1 Grand-Prix run, give him props on his DREAM heavyweight title, and ask him how it felt to essentially ‘uberknee’ Brock Lesnar back into the WWE. That’s it. Unlike you guys, my bromance only extends only to Masakazu Imanari — The Reem will have to wait to get my heterosexual appreciation.

Now that Ubereem has effectively cleaned up combat sports by doing the impossible in 2010-2012 (with the exception of getting the UFC heavyweight title which will be determined at UFC 146), he has now transcended to the land of over-the-top sumo wrestling tournaments. I don’t want to spoil it for you — but Alistair Overeem is basically incapable of losing any competition that involves topless men. Check out the full tournament below.
