Bloody Elbow reports that Alistair Overeem has signed with Malki Kawa's First Round Management team, the same team that manages Jon Jones.
Overeem said: "I'm excited to announce this new deal with Malki Kawa and First Round Management. Malki has built one of the best management companies in MMA, and I'm excited to see what we can accomplish together."
Overeem recently left the Blackzilians and now trains with the Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA team in New Mexico full-time.
Kawa added: "Alistair Overeem is one of the most accomplished heavyweight fighters in all of MMA. I'm excited to bring him on to the First Round Management team and show him exactly what we can provide an athlete of his stature."
Overeem is 2-2 since joining UFC, as he recently beat Frank Mir at UFC 169 by unanimous decision. He was set to fight Junior Dos Santos but had to back out for elbow surgery. He said several weeks ago that he would be able to return in September.
