UFC lightweight Donald Cerrone believes his teammate Alistair Overeem is being unjustly attacked for his sparring style in the gym.

Overeem is a monster of a man sparring with him will always be a risk

I thought that was pretty obvious in the second round against Bigfoot.

I don't believe that for a Second. History has proven that's false plus dudes ego is the size of Big Country's gut. You think a guy like that doesn't wanna prove he's tougher than the LHW champ even if it's just during sparring?

Cerrone probably has never sparred with him.

I'd hope not. A lightweight sparring with a heavyweight has no benefits for either fighter.

I don't buy Overeem intentionally trying to hurt people. He trained at Golden Glory for the majority of his career and it's possible they train much differently than they do at Jaco or Jacksons in terms of intensity and he isn't adjusting.
I'm not defending the way he trains, but I seriously doubt the dude tries to injure the guys he spars with. People get injured ALL THE TIME, but I think with these Overeem situations is the only time we've really known how and why.

You two obviously don't check Cowboy's Twitter before posting.
