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

‘Heavy Artillery’ Video Hype: Overeem and Rogers Face-Off, Alistair Got No Time for Haters


Another promo, another dilapidated warehouse to shoot it in. Brett Rogers is already used to this. And with his first stare-down with Alistair Overeem in the books, things have officially gotten real. Frank Shamrock gives the fighters props for not nervously pissing themselves during the shoot. There isn’t much you can really interpret from the clip; both fighters seem calm and thoroughly focused. Still, if this was a pectoral competition, it would be the Reem in a walk-off. 

After the jump: Overeem explains his 2.5-year absence from Strikeforce, discusses the legality of horse-meat in the United States — like, actual horse-meat, we’re not using that as a euphemism for steroids this time — and plugs his documentary.

Man Helwani was just dancing around the word Steroids. It's like he had steroid ants in his pants. You know he was just trying to figure out a way to approach the subject without being too direct.

Ha ha, Frank Shamrock has braces.

Remember that time when I said I was 'with Soda' about Grim's work on the bag? Soda just got a comment of the week and I'm not 'with him' (no homo) on ANYTHING anymore. Grim looked fabulous . . . He looked like he just spent the last three months sleeping on the mat at Fairtex.

Overeem is in big fucking trouble.

Rogers looked like me punching that bag, terrible. I have a feeling that Overeem is gonna kill this poor bastard.

and if Machida drank Overeem's piss, his balls would shrink, his head would swell and he would co into convulsions. Basically the same thing that happened when Shogun punched him

Yes, I do like Overeem in his interviews - you don't have to be intelligent (or maybe you do) to appreciate his intelligence.
macreadysshack- May 14, 2010 at 11:08 am
I'm with Soda. Grim looked like a first or second year MMA student when he was hitting the Thai pads and heavy bag. He did astonishingly well with Fedor, though, so maybe he's just a hell of a lot better against actual meatbags. Well, he's getting one on Saturday.

Until I saw this clip, I was thinking, hmm, well, Overeem's probably got this but it'll be dangerous for him. Now I'm thinking a lot more along the lines of, oh, shit, Grim's dead.

Only one way to end it vs. dozens of ways to end it. I'm going with the guy that has dozens of ways. And is huge.

And, hey, c'mon, of course he's cool. He's Dutch for God's sake.

I've been around a bit and I've never met a Dutch person I didn't like. Most of them are really really cool. Well, one was a bit of a sociopath spaz but his heart was in the right place.

@ Me

I totally agree. I have never really seen Overeem speak much, and from that interview he does seem like a pretty intelligent guy.

Overeem should win this fight. Brett Rogers is a simple brawler where as Overeem strikes with K-1. Overeem also has great submissions and is the bigger fighter. But just like with Arlovski, anything can happen. But I foresee Alstair beating the shit out of Rogers. Atleast that's what I would want to happen, it'd be great getting a Fedor v. Overeem fight going.

Then hopefully in the future Dana could sign them both. Even Brett Rogers too. I mean, Overeem >>> Mir. He could easily jump into top 4 or 5 in the UFC. And well Fedor is just Fedor, give him Cain Velasquez and see what happens.

The fact is...taking steroids..or just lifting weights...doesn't repair the fragile, structual integrity of your chin. Lil nog had Overeem in the corner looking like a 3 year old with his blanky ( and that weird bandage on his neck/back.) Now he is fighting heavyweights? He might be able to get the jump on Rogers..but when he fights a real Heavyweight striker...i.e. Fedor...toast.

If you feed the horse a steady diet of "tranquilizers", then eat the horse, does that count?
side note: I eat a lot of Chicken, I'm not turning into a chicken.
steampunk22- May 14, 2010 at 9:57 am
Overeem seems like a decent dude, honestly. He has sort of come across as an asshole in the past, but he seems to be sort of....happy?

Maybe its just that SO many heels have come up in MMA that by comparison Overeem seems like a saint.

Anyways, I can't stand Rogers and I hope Overeem gives him a knee-to-the-face ride to the land of wind and ghosts.
Wyatt- May 14, 2010 at 9:56 am
it helps if you picture him doing quotation fingers every time he says "horse meat"
Joedirt- May 14, 2010 at 9:25 am
So if Grimm wins it.... does Fedor fight him again? Seems like they are keeping Fedor from the title.
Soda Popinski- May 14, 2010 at 9:15 am pulling for rogers, but overeem is ginormous and i know size aint everything, but its alot in this fight.

sidenote: rogers looked rough hitting the bag.

@ Smitty

Yeah I noticed that too. I guess he's trying to stay clean for the drug test. Maybe the rumors are true...
Smitty- May 14, 2010 at 8:58 am
That dude has really got trim for this fight. Most videos I've seen for the past 6 months or so of this guy, his face looked much fatter than that. I hope The Grim can make this a good fight. Sucks that I live in The Louie, but won't be attending this bitch!
justscrappin- May 14, 2010 at 8:52 am
513...That one was a little weak. Like I was hoping you were going to come on here after that guy asked what would happn if Machida drank Overeem's piss.. and say " Nothing compared to what would happen if Machida drank Shamrock's."
ytrebil- May 14, 2010 at 8:50 am
I lol'd when he kicked the girl.
Me- May 14, 2010 at 8:42 am
I've never seen him actually talk, mostly because I had found him somewhat repulsive between raping reporters and kicking little girls, but he actually sounds like a somewhat articulate and intelligent individual.
513- May 14, 2010 at 8:39 am
Ken Shamrock would tap alistair in 20 seconds easy.
Joedirt- May 14, 2010 at 8:28 am
Overeem gained 3lbs during that interview.
SofaKingNyce- May 14, 2010 at 8:20 am
Preciate it Kimbo...

But Overeem is fucking jacked (no homo)..
Kimbos Bread- May 14, 2010 at 8:13 am
Ladies and gentleman, the infamous "meat" clip:

justscrappin- May 14, 2010 at 7:58 am
He would turn into a super saiyan ( spelling?) level 5 and destroy a planet.
