Dana White ‘Not a Fan at All’ of Alistair Overeem Following Commission Ruling

Radio show host Jim Rome had the dubious honor yesterday of informing UFC President Dana White of the Alistair Overeem Denied License by NSAC, Can Reapply in Nine Months” href=”http://www.cagepotato.com/alistair-overeem-denied-license-by-nevada-state-athletic-commission-can-reapply-in-nine-months/” target=”_blank”>Nevada State Athletic Commission‘s denial of a license for heavyweight Alistair Overeem and their ruling that he would not be allowed to reapply for nine months. White responded by saying he assumed Overeem would have gotten a more severe punishment and that he is unsure if Alistair will still have a job with the UFC.

“I thought he would get a year. Easily a year,” White said. “I’m not a fan at all. You’re not going to hear me today on your radio show defending Alistair Overeem. Believe me.”

Luckily for Alistair, White has brought back plenty of guys who have failed drug tests or otherwise violated the law. Hell, Alistair has already failed a drug test so he might be a felony away from receiving a title shot when and if he returns. But for Overeem to blow it so epically when so much was on the line? That might be unforgivable.

“I know he lied to me,” White told Rome. “I don’t like it…if they’ll sit in front of you and lie to your face, [they're] not the kind of guys I want to do business with.”

Check out audio from Rome’s interview with Uncle Dana after the jump.

White isnt stupid, he isn't going to release Overeem when he knows he can still make money off of him. Plus he wouldn't want Overeem to sign with another organization while he is still in his prime. Look over Overeem to bide his time while he waits to get a license from the NSAC. I can see him getting a fight early next year.

THE FERTITTA'S ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHORING FIGHTERS AND FOR RUINING MMA. DANA SHOULD LEAVE THOSE DOUCH-TWINS AND START HIS OWN FUCKING LEAGUE. DANA IS GREAT. I KNOW HIM :) LORENZO AND FRANK SHOULD GET BEAT WITH USED TAMPONS AND THEN HAVE MIGUEL TORRES TELL THEM FEMINIST JOKES. ASSHOLES.

I used to hug Dana's nuts and was proud of it. Now I say fuck DW. He is beginning to reek of fail. Supporting SOPA and now this shit.

Don't know if it's pressure from Fox coming to bear but this politically correct bullshit is lame as fuck.

Lorenzo is on juice and he doesn't even fight!

I agree 100%!!!!! Lorenzo WAS a skinny bearded douche-bag a year ago. Now.... he''s still a douche-bag and he's pumped on roids. Oh...and he's STILL a douche-bag. You like it how he 'strategically' places himself in back of each winner of a UFC match to get on tv? You like that? Oh yeah..... HE'S A DOUCH-BAG! WORST POSSIBLE REPRESENTATIVE OF AN ITALIAN. AND YES, IM ITALIAN. AND WHY IN THE FUCK DOES ALLSEEIO SUCK-ARA KEEP GETTING A FIGHT? DUDE LOSES OFTEN. IS IT JUST BECAUSE HE'S ITALIAN? I THINK SO. LORENZO SUCKS. DICKHEAD LORENZO.

They should do random drug tests on the owners of the UFC, might get rid of his roid rage.

That was my first impression of him years ago. He's all of 4 feet tall, maybe. The lil guy has to overcompensate with a big boy voice.
