Alistair Overeem is related to this guy

How bout that, it turns out Alistair Overeem is technically Dutch royalty:

A recently discovered fact in Overeem’s family tree connects him to King William III, who ruled the Netherlands for nearly half a century (1849-90). That royal connection, along with Overeem’s success in combat sports, led Prince Willem Alexander to invite the world-ranked heavyweight for a visit and dinner at the Dutch Royal House.

That just makes his size and strength even more impressive. You know how it is with the Royals – they inbreed so much their family trees often look more like family poles. Thankfully for fight fans, Alistair’s Jamaican genes are so mighty they whupped those inferior Dutch genes harder than Alistair whupped Ironhead Fujita.

    I kinda assumed that Alistair’s Black ancestry came from Suriname (former Dutch colony that imported a lot of West African slaves) since that’s where most of the Black Dutchmen share their roots (ie. Remy Bonjasky, Melvin Manhoef, Ernesto Hoost, Tyrone Spong, Errol Zimmerman, etc. Notice a pattern? They are pretty overrepresented in K-1. It’s those 1337 West African genes) But looking into it further, his father actually is Jamaican (I merely thought you were making a silly comment but he is part-Jamaican).

    It’s interesting that Alistair embraces his Dutch royal lineage when King William III probably would have had a heart attack if he found out that one of his great grand daughters or whoever the fuck Alistair’s mom is was inseminated by a big black Jamaican.

    yep from inbreeding to champ, steroids are a hell of a drug

  • unclefesterdanawhite

    Nah no steroids here. Just a lot of horse meat and beef (going by the “I like beef” sound bite from Sherdog Radio).

  • paulfear

    i wonder if he and the prince dined on horse meat…

    D’oh! The text editor nullifies the spell-checker. I usually “disable rich text” before I post, but not this time.
