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

Alistair Overeem’s Battery Trial Scheduled for March 27th in Las Vegas

(In an unprecedented move, Alistair’s first character witness will be this gigantic K-1 trophy.)

Following his alleged shoving of a woman at the Wynn Las Vegas hotel on January 2nd, UFC heavyweight #1 contender Alistair Overeem is scheduled to appear at a bench trial in Clark County, Nevada, on March 27th, where the verdict will be determined by a judge without a jury. Cross your fingers that the judge isn’t a die-hard Brock Lesnar fan.

Overeem faces one misdemeanor battery charge, which carries a potential $1,000 fine and up to six months in prison. While we expect his high-powered lawyer to smash these charges like an Uberknee to the ribs, it would be a disaster if this affected Overeem’s scheduled heavyweight championship bout against Junior Dos Santos at UFC 146 on May 26th. Stay tuned…

Thanks Sordangles. Drives me crazy that even supposed pro journalists say this all the time. Although you can do more than a year in "jail" (county). Reem is facing misdemeanor charges and that is county time only. Can't do (state) prison time for a misdemeanor!!

Exibit A: The supposed victim is still alive. Case dismissed.

Should be required reading for all successful MMA fighters as an example of the precise reasons they should have hired bodyguards with them at all times. Guaranteed she'll get a much bigger payday than the one she got for "slipping" at Whole Foods...

Technically it would be jail. "prison" is a term used when the sentence is over one year.
