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

Set Your DVRs: Alistair Overeem vs. Remy Bonjasky at K-1 World GP 2009, Late Tonight

(Alistair Overeem presents Remy Bonjasky with the K-1 Oscar for "Best Acting" at today’s pre-event press conference. Bonjasky humbly accepts it, then accuses Overeem of steroid abuse. Yep, that should do it. Props to MMA Scraps for the video.)

The K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 goes down tomorrow in Yokohama, Japan, and will be broadcast live on HDNet. Because of the time difference, it’ll air late tonight in the U.S., at 4 a.m. ET/1 a.m. PT. We’re not fucking vampires, so we’re going to set up the little magic box on our cable TV and watch this thing tomorrow. And it definitely will be worth watching, particularly for the heavyweight headliner between Alistair Overeem and Remy Bonjasky.

If you’ll recall, Overeem most recently scored a shocking first-round TKO over Badr Hari in a K-1 rules match at Fields Dynamite!! 2008 on New Year’s Eve; earlier that month, Hari had his K-1 heavyweight title stripped after he stomped and punched a downed Bonjasky at a K-1 World GP event. You’d think that these experiences would bring Overeem and Bonjasky together as friends, but as you can tell from the above video, not so much. Alistair thinks Remy faked his complaints of vision problems to pick up the DQ win against Hari, while Remy thinks Alistair faked his new muscles. Trash-talk aside, if Overeem can pull this off, it’ll prove that his demolition of Badr Hari was no fluke, and cement his new reputation as the Baddest Heavyweight Striker in the World. And when you have accolades like that, who needs to pass a drug test in the U.S.?

The World GP will also feature a four-man heavyweight tournament starring Melvin Manhoef, and a group of "superfights" that include Semmy Schilt, Jerome Le Banner, Peter Aerts, and Errol Zimmerman. The full fight order is after the jump, courtesy of NightmareOfBattle.

WOW--Nicole here and I was searching with my Logitech Revue for some current fight info and love that I found this site. I have my Revue integrated with my DISH Network DVR so now I have timers set for future like fights to be recorded. I work for DISH and I am a gadget geek, but nothing makes me happier than to know that my Revue can bring me great sites like this on my theme searches!

Alistair is one of the biggest douche bags in all of MMA, a def roid head who thinks just a little too much of himself, the classic asshole you like to hate and want to see get his cake-hole filled with a straight right. No way he would currently pass a drug test in the UFC, thats why he's fighting K1, he'll only ever be a champ in his own juice monkey mind!

Wait... Alistair and Remi are both black dudes?

Might as well call your kids Frasier or Bobby.

Cool to see them joking with each other. If Bobby Lashley can pass a drug test then so can Alistair. Alistair to the UFC!!!

This should be good. Did you know that Remy's first professional bout was a 2nd round stoppage win against Overeem's brother, Valentin, in 1995?
