Default Alistair Overeem Sentenced in Nightclub Incident

From MMAFighting.com:

Mar 27, 2012 - Former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, 31, was sentenced in Las Vegas, Nevada court today to 50 hours of community service and anger management counseling for battery charges related to an incident in a Las Vegas nightclub. The top UFC heavyweight also received a suspended 90-day jail sentence. If the terms of today's sentencing are met, any follow-up punitive action will be dismissed.

The striker faced a maximum of six months in the Clark County Detention Center and not more than a $1,000 fine. Overeem must appear in court again on Las Vegas on September 26th.

The charges Overeem faced resulted from an incident that took place at the Wynn Las Vegas on January 2nd of this year. A woman alleges Overeem pushed her in the face, which caused her to "stagger back".

The former Golden Glory fighter was not in attendance at today's hearing. He was instead represented by his attorney, David Shesnoff.

Overeem was in attendance at today's press conference in Las Vegas promoting UFC 146. He faces Junior dos Santos on that May 26th fight card at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the organization's heavyweight title.
