yeah he lied….but you knew his baggage when you signed him

I mean, I know it looks bad, and there is a good chance that Overeem lied, but isn’t it possible he’s telling the truth? Why would Overeem basically dare Dana and the commission to test him whenever they want, and then show up to a press conference right before the fight with elevated levels? It doesn’t make sense. Even if he is roiding, he’s not stupid. If he was taking anti-inflammatories for his legitimately inured rib, and he can demonstrate that the substance elevates testosterone, doesn’t that “check out”?

Say what you will, I think if you are straight up with Dana then he will have your back. It is in Dana’s best interest to keep Overeem fighting but I don’t blame Dana if he did lie to him.

if he still has a spot in the ufc would not even be a question if he wasnt worth as much as he is.

AOPrinciple, I pretty much feel the same way as you about this, but, why wouldn’t Overeem tell the commission beforehand that he is taking a prescribed inflammatory drug. This is the only thing that really bugs me. Like Dana said, you’re supposed to tell the commission beforehand your are taking so something. Not afterwards. I cant imagine leaving out a glaring detail like that before a test for the biggest fight of your career. Its seems idiotic. I would want to cover all my avenues. I would tell them how may Advil’s I took yesterday.

Dana is a dirty bitch himself….He fires MArquardt for this (cos he sux) but keeps Sonnen and now this crack head….why? Cos they put asses in seats….so Dana, quit bitching, cos U dont give a flying fudge, all u wanna do is make money.

If there was a zero tolerance policy for crap like this, nobody would even try to do it.

Jeah of course he is telling th truth…hmmm

1. What doctor prescribes a professional athlete something with an illegal substance in it and don’t tell the athlete

2. What professional athlete trust his doctor 100% and is not informed about illegal substances so he don’t check what kind of substances he is using

3. If he knew it, why diddn’t he disclosed it beforehand

Answer: either a total non-professional athlete or one that knows exactly what kind of substances help him to improve his game. Well if you are on a skill level like these fighters then you are a professional athlete and well educated about what helps you with your game.

Overroid just probably felt safe because he was not already licenced and he thought because of that they won’t test him…ho hoh ho

F***! Just let roids be allowed like the old Pride days!! I miss those roid raging battles back in the day. Wish it was legal in all sports to give us the best show haha

LOL yeah alright Dana didn’t know he was on the juice ? well that makes him an idiot. Stop lying Dana, you are just pissed off he got caught.

cgbloke Says, in 4-26-2012 at 02:32:24 from    

@ AOprinciple and Cro Cop…
Anti-inflamatories will not elevate or even affect your testosterone levels. There is no drug on the market in the United States that I know of that is a pain medication or anti inflamatory that also has a metabolic steroid it it. Now there are corticosteroids but they have a totally different affect and would not cause someone to fail a drug test. The reason that he didn’t disclose the pain medication (which could have been a narcotic and needed to be disclosed as well) is because he didn’t think he was going to get caught and tested during a cycle.

AussieMMA Says, in 4-26-2012 at 03:09:33 from    

@jpe326, Agree completely. They should never have signed him.

well said haha..

KUSHOVER Says, in 4-26-2012 at 05:01:25 from    

Same s***, Dana acting like he’s descusted and doesn’t know if he’s going to cut him. We all know when Overeem is cleared to fight he’s gonna headline a card and probably gonna fight for the title . Dana and the UFC will make tonnes of dough as usual and thats all that counts !

london_Jones Says, in 4-26-2012 at 05:32:43 from    

how many fighters are on the s**t? how many fighters do you make this bigger deal about Dana!? MMA with without Dana equals no bulls**T just fighting!
but a lot of you need a GOD to tell you right from wrong so he is needed by the sheep i guess…

the cyclops Says, in 4-26-2012 at 08:26:00 from    

If any of you actually believe it was an anti inflammatory,then I suppose you believe in the Easter bunny also,huh? This guy is the most clear cut case of using PEDs I have ever seen.He was using.He lied.He got caught.He continues to lie.End of story.I mean the guy even got in his car and left the press conference when he found out he was being tested!!! His manager had to get him to come back,and then he tested with a 14-1 ratio of test to epi-test!!! Are you aware the average man is1-1?Some people will believe anything.

100%SUCKAFREE Says, in 4-26-2012 at 12:20:27 from    

Dana unfortunately has to address the public and that’s why he’s pist. Professional, Dana white is not so I expect idle threats and outbursts. Overeem, he made a bad “professional” decision and now is paying for it.

Cro Cop Fan Says, in 4-26-2012 at 13:19:54 from    

“shut the f up crop cop fan, u dont know anything, ur a hater. U dont know how the commission or testing works, f ur advil”

What!? Did you read my post? All I said was why didn’t Overeem tell thee commission he had a prescription. That’s a hater? Ok, well said then, thanks for your contribution.

dave Says, in 4-26-2012 at 14:08:55 from    

absolutely not any fighter before gets tested its asked “have you taken any drugs?” and that included any kind of drug even a simple headache pill, his response was No which means he lied and probably knew the drug has an advantage of extra dose of testosterone so he tried to hide it. he deserves the suspension its not fair for other fighter who train hard and are clean!

FailSonnen Says, in 4-26-2012 at 14:14:03 from    

@the cyclops: They tested him again at the press conference?

MangyMongoose Says, in 4-26-2012 at 14:41:01 from    

I miss the roid rage battles as well. Mark Coleman in Pride was a crazy f*****!

the cyclops Says, in 4-26-2012 at 20:00:01 from    

@FailSonnen No,at the original press conference when he got busted,for the JDS fight,they surprise random tested all the fighters,and reem took the hell off.

Genghis Khan Says, in 4-26-2012 at 23:49:06 from    

How the f..k are anti-inflamatories suppose to increase your testosterome level. Load of crap, and Dana is to blame for signing him up to begin with. This guy belongs in a circus fighting roid freaks, add Lesnar/coleman/ sapp and maybe a silverback gorilla in there and you got yourself an event.

costa200 Says, in 5-1-2012 at 11:40:36 from    

He lied to you? OK… But have you looked at that guy’s body? Now, you’re into pro sports. Do you think he got that body that fast in a natural way? give me a break… The only reason you’re pissed is because he was stupid enough to get caught.
