Knock Out Investments, better known as Dutch fight management firm Golden Glory, filed a lawsuit in Clark County, Nevada, Thursday alleging Alistair Overeem breached the terms of a five-year contract with the group that runs through July 2012.

The complaint, a copy of which ESPN.com has obtained, also names Overeem's representative Collin Lam as a defendant. The filing comes one day prior to the Overeem's headlining clash against Brock Lesnar at UFC 141 in Las Vegas.

"We have a legal team," Lam told ESPN.com. "We have a great law firm in Las Vegas. A great law firm in L.A. So they're taking care of everything."

Overeem is alleged to not have paid a 30 percent commission to Knock Out Investments following his win in Strikeforce against Fabricio Werdum on June 18, 2011.

I don't know, man. I kind of back GG on this, I think. Especially after reading what Bas Rutten had to say about the situation a few weeks back.

Oh, I support him being sued. It's more the day before the most important fight of his life thing. Couldn't have waited a day or two? It's probably not the worst distraction in the world but it probably has some affect on him mentally.

I don't know...I feel like he sort of screwed them over (if what Bas says is true) so what's good for the goose is good for the gander as far as I'm concerned.

It shouldn't matter much, though. Brock's still going to expose him.

God, i hope not. JDS vs. Brock is fun and all but JDS vs. Overeem is just ridiculous.

overeem will be backed by the ufc, i doubt they would have signed him if he wasnt in the right shape legally. i know it doesnt have anything to do with the ufc but i dont see this going very far. now show me an UBERknee tonight Alistair.
