Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Alistair Overeem Sentenced to Community Service, Anger Management for Alleged Lady-Shoving

(Does *this* look like the face of a man who might beat you to death with a large ceremonial hammer?)

You can all exhale now — Alistair Overeem‘s dust up at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel earlier this year, in which he allegedly shoved a woman, will not result in a jail sentence. This is good news for UFC fans who are salivating over his upcoming heavyweight title fight against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146, and great news for the lucky bastard who just avoided becoming the Reem’s cell mate. (I’m just saying, he’s a big man, and he needs love.)

Overeem waived his right to a trial and did not appear in court for his misdemeanor battery hearing yesterday. While he was busy throwing out energy fields at the UFC 146 press conference, Overeem’s attorney David Chesnoff finalized a plea deal that will require the fighter to fulfill 50 hours of community service and to undergo anger-management counseling. Hopefully Alistair learns to channel his aggression into something positive, like party-rocking. Overeem also received a suspended 90-day jail sentence, but the matter will be dismissed as long as he meets the conditions laid out by the court.

Without sharing details of the case, Overeem described the situation as a lesson about the differences between Holland and America:

Being famous in the States is definitely different than being famous in Holland or anywhere else, and it comes with a lot of advantages and some disadvantages. You need to learn how to deal with it,” said Overeem, who is now employing a security detail. “In Holland, I can just go to the grocery store and buy my eggs and milk, and here you might be under attack. Some situation may come up and you’re drawn into it and suddenly it’s world news. We don’t have that in Holland.”

Assuming they don’t make Overeem pick up cans off the side of the highway like some common schmuck, how do you think he should spend his 50 hours of community service?

alleged is in the title b/c its ridiculous. You really think after one of his biggest fights in career he was mad and temperamental to just go out and push someone. Im sure he was in a really good mood and some moron of a woman did something beyond explanation and hoped she could eventually sue this star. The judge should be let go from vegas.

I think since he was sentenced you can leave the "alleged" out of the title.

Does humiliating Brock Lesnar not count as community service served?

When I read the leader "about the differences between Holland and America” I was expecting to read stuff about smoking dope, prostitutes, drinking beer in the cinema and going to McDonalds and ordering a “royale with cheese”…. However egg and milk shopping is gud Ya!

Although I'm sure Overeem has been busy, him not showing up to the court to stand up for himself doesn't make him look good. I'm sure this was a bullshit case to begin with, but now the general public that knows absolutely nothing about Overeem will read the news and say MMA cultivates woman beaters blah blah.

For his service, I think he should be a zoo keeper. Feed carrots to horse faced women instead to suppress his natural instinct to kill them.

He should teach a 50 hour woman's self defense class. That way he can push all the bitches he wants for 50 straight hours and call it education.

Train Timmah Silvia for 50 days.
