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

Alistair Overeem Shows Up on ‘MMA Uncensored Live’, Refuses to Talk About Drug Test [VIDEO]

(Props: Spike TV via Fightlinker)

It’s been over a week since news broke of Alistair Overeem failing his random pre-fight drug test, and the Reem has been quiet as a mouse ever since. Now would be a good time for him to start making the media rounds with an explanation, or an apology, or at least an acknowledgment that he failed the test and potentially wrecked a massive UFC heavyweight title fight. So what does this big son-of-a-bitch do? He goes on Spike TV’s MMA Uncenscored Live on Thursday, on the condition that he won’t discuss the drug-test situation in any way, and instead gives a straight interview about his matchup with Junior Dos Santos, which again, probably won’t happen.

Luckily, the hosts didn’t swallow the bullshit. “Either P90X really, really works, or the man was putting something in his body,” said host Craig Carton, looking at side-to-side photos of Overeem from 2005 and 2012. Nate Quarry agreed, saying “You’ve got to be very naive to take a look at those pictures and think he’s not using performance enhancing ‘supplements.’ Let’s just say he can put on 40 to 50 pounds of pure muscle in about four to five years — when 20 pounds of that is directly on your head, that’s an issue.”

When Mike Straka reminds his colleagues that it was just testosterone that Overeem came up positive for, he basically gets laughed off the set. Still, one of Straka’s lines earlier in the segment says it all: “There’s gonna have to be a miracle for him to get licensed to fight.”

Right now, that “miracle” would be the NSAC accepting some manufactured “testosterone deficiency/replacement therapy” excuse, just so the UFC doesn’t lose out on a massive payday. As much as we’d all like to see Overeem and JDS collide like a crazed pair of bull elephant seals, it would be a joke if this fight proceeds as planned.

UFC is starting to look like MBL . " If you don't use 'ROIDS , when we don't want , DW. " . All Reem will do , since he's not licensed in Nevada , is say he hurt his big toe . That's what he said the last time he missed the piss test . Then wait three months to pass the test and there you go . The same reason the big fighters are getting 5 to 25 year in the slammer . 'Roids . Plain and simple .

The only part about any of this that is surprising is how many people believed or suddenly care that he popped? Seriously.. You were okay with it when he cheated and passed tests but he if uses and pops you jump off his junk like a runaway train. Fuck that I still love his style of fighting and his personality. I new he was on shit before but I'm still a fan, durp durp.

I no longer care about Alisteroid Overdose. He is a disgrace, and a cheat.

if reems face fattens out like cyborgs did then theres your answer.
Reem prob abused roids bc theres no testing in japan. even in the ufc, id say 50% of the fighters use PED's for quicker recovery, more strength, whatever. until there is strict testing fighters will do what they can to gain an edge.

I wonder how many casual fans will care about all this if the fight still ends up happening. I want my Rock'em Sock'em Heavyweights dammit!

@Sloppyspray - People on TRT take in the neighborhood of 80 MG a week. A "steroid user" on a light cycle will be taking between 250-400mg a week. Experienced BB will be using 1000mg a week, plus other substances. The TRT dosage is monitored regularly by any good endocrinologist and you dont get get the peak levels youre talking about. The whole point is to have stable levels of testosterone on the system. If you DO have peak like 12:1 E:t, then it isnt TRT anymore. Its the "abuse" of an anabolic agent. It is absolutely unacceptable for someone on therapeutic TRT to have test levels higher than natural.

You mean to tell me there's yet another suspicious incident related to overeem and ped abuse? Ya don't say. How shocking.

Testosterone is like anything else. On it, there are noticeable changes...differences. Off it, you are almost back to normal. Sure he may have built some big muscles, but ask any bodybuilder who is cutting for competition. That is when they are at their weakest. On the other hand, maybe dude just has good genetics and didn't start really lifting until 05. Does anyone know if that is the case? All the test in the world isn't going to stop Junior from wrecking overeem come fight time. If Junior can use his speed to neutralize overeems kicks...gunna be a short night for uber...

This is how I see the argument going.
1)UFC says that he has a testosterone deficiency and needed replacement therapy (which isn't that crazy to suggest considering, I believe, Duffee has been approved for it). Commission takes the bait.
2) UFC provides signed doctor's script or may be even affidavit (paid UFC doc with no reason not to b/c the commission doesn't have the money to sue him if he perjures himself)
3) UFC says, Look commission, for a person to undergo this treatment they can't just take a shot and be "at" the needed level, what they need is to AVERAGE that level. So they receive their treatment which puts them at a level of 12:1 and 8 days later they are at a level of 6:1 and this continues to decrease until their average ratio for the period between shots is 6:1 or 4:1, which is within the allowable range. (Commission says "Ok? so?")
4) UFC says "so, you see, you just happened to do your random test on they day after Alistair received his treatment. The affidavit from the doctor states that. See? So Alistair was not breaking the rules b/c his average was there, and there is no way for them to keep a level of 6:1 or 4:1 without going over that level occasionally, baring taking a shot everyday which is unrealistic to ask of a fighter."
5) Commission then either buys the argument or doesn't
