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

While Alistair Was Retiring Brock a New Episode of ‘The Reem’ Quietly Made Its Way Onto the Interwebs

(If Arianny liked us 1/10 as much as she does “The Reem” we’d be out of the doghouse right now)

While the rest of us were watching Alistair Overeem make Brock Lesnar wish he had never taken up real fighting, the creative powers behind “The Reem” were releasing another episode of our favorite online documentary.

(Poor Tiki)

Judging by our favorite two gifs from the episode, you can guess that “The Demolition Man” was a big hit in Vegas.

Check it out below.

Season 2, episode 9 begins with Alistair arriving in Las Vegas where he promptly heads to a clinic to submit a urine sample as per NSAC requirement. After that “The Demolition Man” heads to the MGM Grand to attend to some last-minute promotional odds and ends. He’s joined by possibly the coolest guy under Zuffa contract (sorry Bruce), Burt Watson who gives the former Strikeforce champ a rundown of what’s going to go down on fight night.

Alistair shows his sense of humor when he gives Ariel Helwani a hug, just so he can get him sweaty, which may be why the reporter says he gives “the slight edge on paper” to Lesnar in the fight.

Does anybody else find it fascinating that Brock knows he had surgery in May but can’t calculate how many months it’s been since then? I don’t know if he can’t add or if he just doesn’t give a shit as long as he gets paid… or was that his opinion on fighting?

It’s also curious to note that Brock’s confidence in his striking was high heading into the fight, which may explain why he forgot he was once a Division I wrestler. Saying that he and Pat Barry were “banging” and it was “look out time” when they sparred may have foreshadowed his true gameplan for the bout. Having a paid training partner and coach who stands in the pocket and trades with you to boost your confidence in the gym isn’t the same as squaring off against someone like Overeem who could snap your neck with a kick or a punch. Lesson learned.

^ I've seen that look before. It's the same look she gets when she sees a bale of hay.
For some reason "The Circle of Life" is now playing over and over again in my head...

Forget Ariany, look at Chandella's expression.

I think Tiki can prank and trash talk his way back into the UFC for a match with Overeem. Weight classes be damned, it's a fight we'd all like to see. Maybe not pay to see, but I'd definately want to see the result.
Arianny may be a bit disapointed though; I've heard that eating horsemeat doesn't necessarily leave you endowed like one.
isomorphism is the captcha, if nothing else this is expanding my vocabulary...

I'm 99% sure none of the ring girls had ever seen him before that exact moment. Getting all gooped up in one second flat.

Pat Barry to "mimic" Overeem in the striking?! Bahahahaha. I think that doctor removed a bit of his brain with the colon during that surgery. No wonder the Thai Plum was so effective - Pat Barry would have a hard time clinching Brock even if he got on his knees. Dude is so short he makes Muggsy Bogues look like Manute Bol.

There's something ominous about this dark stranger from the east...

Wasn't the best episode of 'The Reem' but still alright.

Too much of the press conferences and video clips which were shown before.

The stuff with Burt Watson was cool.
Need more behind the scenes stuff. See what really is going on.

Overeem is a Beast!

It seems that Arianny and Dana White both got weak in the knees. You see how hard Dana was eyeing the Overeem? lol

I get the same look when I take off my pants that Alistair gets when he takes off his shirt.

I just showed my fiance that gif and she said "Holy shit! He looks photoshopped!"

No Arianny, you're going to have to open your mouth a lot wider to get it in there
