UFC Star Alistair Overeem

Ordered to Learn How

To Keep His Cool

UFC badass Alistair Overeem has just been ordered to attend "impulse control" counseling -- after allegedly shoving a woman in the face at a Vegas hotel in January.

He was also ordered to perform 50 hours of community service.

As we previously reported, Overeem was charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly "pushing/shoving" a woman in the face at the Wynn Hotel on January 2 -- just a few nights after beating Brock Lesnar into retirement at UFC 141.

In addition, Alistair was sentenced to 90 days for the assault today -- but the sentence was suspended to give the bruiser a chance to show the court he's not an out-of-control hothead.

If Overeem completes his community service and anger management classes in time ... the battery charge will be dismissed.

This is crazy why is this happening if Alistair Overeem gets punished this heavily for a bit of shoving or pushing why is Trayvon Martins killer still on the loose this is ridiculous.

If all he did was "push" her then he WAS in control.

There should be a court ordered change of name for him as well and a pimp slap to the person who gave it to him.

Nevada, like Florida has hold your ground laws when it comes to protecting yourself with firearms.
This guy should have just taken out a gun, shot her, and then claimed she was invading his space.
And perhaps someone could shoot Green - L while we're at it.

I have no idea who that man is but his cranium is very small where a brain would be. Also, if he is single me might be a good match for Kim Kardashian or her mother.

"...but the sentence was suspended" SURPRISE, SURPRISE... from the #2 fvcked-up Celebrity Court states. Why are there laws if those clowns posing as "judges" are just going to piss on them?

I think Alistair is Rick Moranis' evil twin (or maybe his evil son). Compare pics with Moranis from Ghostbusters if you don't believe me: http://crookedlanecrookedlane.wordpress.com/2011/04/28/too-tired-for-a-title/

I can't blame Alistair on this one. Did you see the woman he pushed? She looked like Brock Lesnar!

I don't know what that thing is. But if it's human, it should get a heavier sentence than that for "shoving" any woman. Another Tyson in the making.
