Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Alistair Overeem Has a Pair of Brass Ones, Ladies and Gentlemen

(Oh, have I got your attention now? Good.) 

When rumors started flying that Alistair Overeem had failed his pre-fight drug test for UFC 141, therefore ruining his chances to participate in one of the biggest heavyweight matches of all time, there weren’t many of us who were quick to defend him. The fact is, despite Alistair never testing positive for steroids, his Incredible-Hulkian transformation from this guy to this guy has tested our beliefs as to exactly how much bulk one can add without the use of juice.

And when Alistair was only granted a conditional license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission due to his urine sample being over three weeks late, it only steepened the hill to which the rumor snowball was careening down. So, you can imagine our surprise when Alistair told Yahoo Sports that he felt there should be more drug testing in MMA:

I’ll be tested four times in three weeks this month, so after this, there cannot be any more doubts. The thing is, I’ve fought in the States before and every time I got tested, I’ve never tested positive. So I don’t where all [the speculation about steroid use] is coming from. I’m too focused on my career, and I don’t really pay attention to these messages. I cannot judge other fighters, though of course sometimes you have your suspicions. Do I think testing should be [done] more [frequently]? Yes, I do think it should be done more, but I think it should be applied to all athletes and not just a randomly select few.

As much as we agree with you, Mr. Ubereem, it is shocking to hear such a statement come from the horse’s mouth *snicker* nonetheless. It would be like if Timothy McVeigh began campaigning for a harsher form of the death penalty in the late 90′s. But considering Overeem’s clean record up to this point, perhaps he has just as much a right as any to call for more extensive and frequent drug testing in the sport.

For now, we will just have to put those issues aside and watch the real life version of King Kong vs. Godzilla, which goes down at UFC 141 on December 30th from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

So, what say you, Potato Nation, is it just a matter of time until Alistair eats his words, or should we stop beating this dead horse?


By the way, the above image, which you may or may not recognize, is from the 1992 film, Glengarry Glen Ross. If you have yet to see it, I highly recommend renting it from your local video store, if only to witness Alec Baldwin’s cameo, which is likely the inspiration behind 90 percent of Chael Sonnen‘s infamous one-liners.

I thought the story was that he submitted a blood sample...from holland...three weeks late...from the family doctor...and the blood sample didn't even test for what it was supposed to test for...and he still needs to submit a urine sample.

if you don't think reem is juicing then you should just stay in your scientology compound and never come out. i don't even care. let them all juice and be the best superathlete possible for my entertainment purposes.
KeithHackneyWindmillPalmStrike- December 15, 2011 at 5:00 am
Yeah, he's all for more long as he knows long enough in advance to cycle off. He knew he needed every last bit of juice for this Lesnar fight so he went a little overboard, luckily the commissions a huge pussy and gave him three weeks extra time to burn off that extra horse meat

Skeletor, while Sonnen has some shady stuff in his past, Overeem is clearly playing dumb here, not unlike Chael. "Oh, my assistant didn't tell me, and I thought it was ok to use my own personal doctor for this test."

Come on, this is a fairly naked attempt to get the juice out of his system.

Thank you for your share of your article, and it was really wonderful, very good discount uggs

Yeah Glengarry is the shit Danga, Pacino, Spacey, Baldwin and Harris, one of the best scripts ever written. Oh yeah Overeems a big, horse eating roid muncher.

Didn't Diaz try to play this same game, but they denied his license in less time than they gave Overeem to fly out and cylcle off?

It isn't about beating a one-off test here and there. Let's have Overeem compete 3 times in one year in a regulated, tested environment and it might give him some credibility.
J. Spaceman- December 14, 2011 at 8:27 pm
I think you guys are missing the big story here. If I read that correctly, and I'm pretty sure I did, skeletor just complimented Danga.
I'm not sure how to feel right now...

wrong dalton. He only owned up once he knew he was busted, during his test. But hey if you want to take the word of a clown who was then, shortly after, convicted of money laundering, fraud and was stripped of his real estate license and again suspended... I have a bridge you may also be interested in.
DaltonSwayze- December 14, 2011 at 5:28 pm
Hey shatterproof, you do realize that Chael was guilty of not filing his paperwork properly, right? It was a suspension due to not following procedures properly, kind of like what Alistair is doing here

Who does this Alistair guy think he is?
FUCK YOU, that's his name!
ccman- December 14, 2011 at 4:13 pm
What else is he going to say? He cycled off later and his mom coughed on the phone so a lightbulb went off? Sorry I haven't seen an exercise that swells your noggin also.
RaginAsian- December 14, 2011 at 4:02 pm
Being tested four times in the next three weeks means nothing if he's already cycled off. Being tested every month between NYE and his next fight might silence people. But I'm not holding my breath.
skeletor- December 14, 2011 at 3:30 pm
It's obvious Overeem uses some sort of synthetic Dutch roids nobody has figured out how to test for. I did some research and found out that the Overeem's don't even have a mother. I'll let you guys speculate on the real reason he had to leave the states right before his testing.
Good story Danga. Go fuck someone else tonight.

It ain't cheating if you don't get caught.
Well, it IS cheating, but... Y'know.
Seraldo Babalu- December 14, 2011 at 3:06 pm
he's got brass ones alright. tiny little shrivled up juice filled brass ones
shatterproof- December 14, 2011 at 2:40 pm
CP loves to dog Overeem with completely unsubstantiated accusations of doping, then polishes Sonnen's balls in the gargler at every opportunity despite his documented cheating. Give it a rest, dickbags. :)

What is this "local video store" thing to which you refer?
