Alistair Overeem Will Return To The UFC, Dana White Won't Deal With Him | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
Dana White comments on Alistair Overeem’s future following UFC 146.

White firstly comments on Overeem returning after his suspension.

“He lied to me. He sat in front of us, he lied to us, I’m not interested. I don’t have to deal with people I don’t want to deal with and I don’t want to deal with him, Lorenzo will.”

However it seems as though Overeem wont be released after his suspension is up and will likely be fighting again.

“He went before the athletic commission and he got his punishment. He’s going to serve his sentence now and when he comes back, he has to apply for a license again and then we’ll go from there.”

White comments when asked if Overeem would be re-inserted into the title fight once his suspension is up.

“Yeah, I think he should (regain his standing in the division).”

    Sounds like Lorenzo made an executive decision and went over DW’s head lol.

    And DW shouldn’t bitch about lying, it’s what he does all the time. It’s still not even clear if Overeem lied or not. He probably did though…

    • Chris says:

      he wont talk to overeem but will talk to sonnen? WTF!

      • Xaninho says:

        The conclusion I draw from that is that Sonnen told DW upfront he had elevated levels. If this isn’t the case he’s still butthurt cause Overeem slaughtered his prizecow.

        Or maybe it’s just a black thing….

        • Gerald says:

          lmao, i dont think Sonnen told DW at all. and im glad Overeem will be in the UFC cause JDS needs someone to fight. Mir was a joke. im hoping Cain will be a good fight but besides Cain i dont think any others can stand and bang besides Overeem.

    • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

      Dana won’t deal with Overeem but he has no problem dealing with a CHEATING scumbag Federal FRAUD Felon ROIDER like Sonnen.

  2. Damnu says:

    It’s reality when Dana realizes he don’t run shit The fertitas do…sure reem should come back an fight for the title! And yes Dana lies all the time

  3. Kalito says:

    The fact of the matter is regards if he did or didn’t use roids……. Reem is a big catch he will put bums on seats.HW division requires huge names. As deep as the UFC’s division is now they need BIG beast like reem to make big PPV numbers.

  4. Michael hamlin says:

    Dana really ain’t shit but a face for the UFC cause truth be told he dont run shit and he don’t care about mma he only cares about his pockets and that’s real!!!

  5. Jdiddy3844 says:

    I dont think overeem deserves a straight title shot! He got away with steroids for a while but he let down alot of people! Disrespectful to the real fighters like jds, and valasquez who train hard to be the best through discipline and hard work and dedication! Not to say overeem doesnt but he took the cheaper route to be better! If brock got off the juice for mma anyone can! Although i do hope to see overeem come back to the ufc i truely hope its the right way this time!

  6. Train the trainer says:

    I am not a huge Dana White fan but to say he does not care is the opposite of his problem. He does care in fact he cares to much and is over emotional and stressed out all the time. He wears his emotions on his sleeve and is often not tactful in his communication. He does however love the sport and cares deeply about it.

  7. Peterbeater says:

    Dana is a crybaby, he and Lorenzo are both on the juice just like all their fighters.

  8. Overeem should be fired just like anyone else caught cheating.The ufc is just encouraging people to cheat if they are just going to reinstate them after the ac punishes them.Some fighters must now be thinking”You know what i will cheat.I’ll only get suspended then the ufc will let me fight again.”I pretty sure the King Mo incident was’nt as bad as Overeem.Yet King Mo gets skidded immediately?Overeem will get reinstated(if his license is granted) and reinserted back into the title picture.Overeem must be laughing his ass off.

    • Not You says:

      King Mo was actually using anabolic steroids. Overeem was caught with an elevated T:E ration that was attributed to the use of an anti-inflammatory that contained an aqueous form of testosterone. Please, know your info.

      • James says:

        UFO sightings are all swamp gas reflecting off of venus.

      • toneloc24 says:

        U mean that’s what Overeem said his elevated levels came from right? Cause there’s no proof of that except the testimony of a shady doctor and from Overeem himself, both of whom have been proven to be less than honest.

        • MartelW says:

          Dude, Overeem was tested for ANY kind of illegal substance. He tested negative. Therefore he was telling the truth about using an Anti-inflammatory that contained an aqueous form of testosterone.
          It’s also why he didn’t fight JDS, because there are always fans like you (who don’t read or pay attention to anything) that would call him a cheat when he won the title.

        • toneloc24 says:

          I never said he tested positive for anything moron, and I never called him a cheat either so dont put words in my mouth. The only thing we know for certain is his T:E ratio was off. My only point was that u can’t say for sure that he didn’t inject himself with synthetic testosterone and then make up a bullshit story about testosterone being in some other medicine he was getting for an injury. The only other thing we kno for sure is your a moron Overeem dickrider that believes any bullshit he says

        • toneloc24 says:

          I’m guessing u were probably writing that in response to Techno striker, in which case I apologize. My bad it was posted as a reply to me

  9. Starr816 says:

    Here’s my idea of how to deal with the trt/roid issue, it’s really easy and you don’t need the athletic commission to any degree, the UFC should , as a private employer, have a zero tolerance policy. One strike and your career in the most relevant promotion is over. That should make guys think very hard when weighing the options. Force them to ask themselves, “is it worth it?”. Make on big example I.e. overeem and I’m sure the number of suspensions due to abuse would exponentially drop.

    • Nicain says:

      They have every right to set something like that up, and should, to bad they realize they’d lose a few solid money makers right out of the gate and would unfortunately never do it.

    • GET RID OF FITCH ( forever) says:

      Zero tolerance really isn’t fair because not all athletes/fighters can afford the non-detectable steroids and HGH like GSP has been on for years. Only the really wealthy get the real goods. Victor Conte has flooded MMA with non-tectables ie: same sh’it Barry Bonds was on fro 10 years

  10. Zack says:

    Dana white should get eye contacts with dollar signs for pupils

  11. Nicain says:

    Won’t be putting down the cash to watch any of his fights, only the free streams, hopefully it’s a light card so I won’t miss DVRing it.

  12. G Bud says:

    When Overeem defeats JDS Dana’s gonna pull his hair out….

    • James says:

      I think it’s funny that a few months back Dana was trying to say you were crazy if you thought Overeem was a top 10 HW.

      • Mike cannon jr says:

        Dana white… Sux ass…. Tired of his censorship … And personal shit getn in the way of the best comp… U betr toss his salad if u wanna fight in the UFC … It’s bullshit…. Like don king…. Waste of oxygen …. He’s done as much for mma… As Vince has done for the WWE …. Lmfao… Pathetic…. real mma fans don’t wanna sit by WWE methed out junky trash..

  13. Star816 i could’nt agree with you more.Absolutely spot on.

  14. Chartmonster says:

    FK Dana .. Overeem is a fkn superstar even more so then crock Lesnar! Reem will have that UFC HW belt then Dana will be licking his nuts like he did Brock.

  15. monkey juice says:

    Create an open weight, open PED division. Keep unified rules, but let them juice. These would be the only fair fights in mma. Right now the best cheaters will succeed. We all know 95% are using. Its becoming a bust. all this testing is ruining great match ups!!!! What’s wrong with you fucking dummies!!!!!!!this isn’t the fucking Olympics who FUCKING CARES!!!!!!!! ENTERTAIN US!!!!!

  16. Mike cannon jr says:

    Am I the only person here.. Who saw chuck ko overeem …. At. 205?…. If reem beat dos Santos …. Think chuck should move up n weight and fight him ….again…. Ok I admit it… I miss chuck…. Lol…

    • Mike cannon jr says:

      Thinx chuck should juice up 60 plus pounds.. Like overeem did..lmao… Get offa the juice… Long enuff to pass the test… Just like Brock and reem… And every single other fighter out their… Tim Silvia ..Barnett ..Royce was the only guy I’m sure didn’t juice… So… Get up chuck… Lol… Cuttin weight is the same fuqn kinda cheating if u ask me…. Looking to beat on Somone smaller than u ain’t exactly courage… Now is it?…

  17. Flex juice monkey says:

  18. Mike cannon jr says:

    • Mike cannon jr says:
