Dana White Comments On Productive Meeting With Overeem Now Has "Nothing but respect for Alistair" | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
UFC President Dana White has been very vocal in expressing his disdain for Alistair Overeem after ‘The Reem’ failed a drug test prior to the scheduled UFC 146 bout with Junior Dos Santos.

White had stated previously that he would not deal with Overeem again. However the two seem to have rebuilt a working relationship after a positive meeting Dana now has “Nothing but respect for Alistair”.

Dana White comments to MMAFighting.

“He went downstairs and waited for forty minutes until I called him upstairs, and then came into my office like a man.”

“Nothing but respect for Alistair now. We all make mistakes and we all do stupid s–t. I say this all the time. It’s all in how you handle yourself after. He handled himself like a f—ing stud.”

“He’s doing all the right things now,” White said. “He’s fixing all the wrongs. We’ll see what happens.”

    Whatever floats danas boat but come on really?!

  2. Xaninho says:

    If it’s ok for Sonnen to piss hot, it’s ok for Overeem too.

    That doesn’t take away the disappointment Overeem caused. Many people were looking forward to the JDS-Overeem fight.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Yep, I knew it you go bazerker about Sonnen using legal TRT and then say its ok for Overeem to lie about it and use it illegally too. You are a fuckin’ HYPOCRITE!! Your shit Smells to high heaven.. Where is your fuckin sanctimonious outrage like you spewed about Sonnen??? Dude, be consistent with your judgements.

      • Xaninho says:

        Sonnen’s TRT WAS NOT LEGAL the first time! He got SUSPENDED for it!

        Only one who’s going berserk over this is YOU! All I said is if it’s ok for Sonnen, it’s ok for Overeem too. By that I mean DW going crazy with Overeem and letting Sonnen off the hook for the exact same thing.

      • GRT 3000 says:

        Yeah @X be consistent…it’s like you’re saying that Wrestling Rules and at the same time calling Anderson “The Great One” and BJ the GOAT! just doesn’t compute…

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Silva is Great at what he does, BUT he;s NO GOAT or p4p…..what’s inconsistent about that???

    • hauts says:

      piss hot? you do know that chael had a ratio of 4:1 legal in most combat sports… including UFC… GET REAL YOU JOKE FAN!!! i mean silva had to illegally knee him when he was down to even win the fight! FUCK THERE BOTH CHEATERS

      • Xaninho says:

        I was referring to an earlier event where Chael Sonnen was caught with 16.9:1 ratio. A knee to a downed opponent is legal if it’s to the body.

        Something tells me this was your first ever MMA event you watched. Speak when you know what you’re talking about, for now shut the motherfuck up!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Was that 2nd paragraph the short fuse thing you were talking about???? Or did you just feel like giving a slap down……

  3. Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

    Lol as far as im concerned Chael and Anderson fought to total of 7/10 rounds. Chael won 5 of them and Anderson won 2. The score is 5-2 therefore Chael is still winning the fight.

    • Quitcrying says:

      Holy crap shoot yourself

    • dogfart says:

      dafuq?
      you must be troll

    • Matt says:

      Oh my God the **** is back. Dude you really need to shut your dumb fing **** mouth and do us all a favor and stay on topic dipshit. Go post your Chael vs Silva **** rhetoric on chael or silva articles/threads. Do you get the concept?

      • GRT 3000 says:

        he can’t help himself…he’s butthurt and that’s all he can think about. right now he’s doing what’s known as cry-baby blogging (or CBB)…awwweee, there’s still hope for Chael to be a champion little guy. He’s in talks with WWE right now.

  4. Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

    Lol as far as im concerned Chael and Anderson fought to total of 7/10 rounds. Chael won 5 of them and Anderson won 2. The score is 5-2 therefore Chael is still won the fight.

  5. REAL TALK says:

    Overeem vs JDS would be EPIC. And btw not a Sonnen fan, but the commission did wipe him off before the fight. and Knee was illegal, it doesnt matter if its to the body, its what part of knee u use, u have to use the femur, where the quads are, not the tibia. Andy lost his mind, but honestly HE DID ROBB chael, lets get Comission to look at it, so Chael can get his rightfull title.

    • Xaninho says:

      Nope knee to the body of a downed opponent is legal. Face is off limits, body not.

      • Jay says:

        Rashad did the same to tito, noone seemed to have a problem them.

        Anderson isn’t the most complete fighter but he is probably the best at what he does.

        • Majestyk says:

          How is making the ridiculous claim that he didn’t know what he was being injected with “handling it like a fucking stud”?

        • Xaninho says:

          Jon Jones kneed Shogun in the ribcage when he was down too. There are countless more examples, but these Sonnen fanboys are butthurt and can’t handle defeat.

  6. Zenwithin says:

    DW is a two faced hypocrite, all the shit that man talks about people then he back peddles his comments. He’s just so full of himself that he can’t see straight, look at his comment “He went downstairs and waited for forty minutes until I called him upstairs, and then came into my office like a man.” I mean really? He’s acting like this guy is some bitch that couldn’t tear his fucking head off. I just can’t wait till someone finally flips out and hands that man the ass whipping he deserves, and it should be done if front of the world!!! Nuff said.

  7. MMACRAVER says:

    HOLY FUCK… DANA WHITE IS MORE EMOTIONAL THEN A GIRL ON HER FUCKING PERIOD.

    Fucking guy cant stick to a single principle, because he has none.

    Never seen a public figure talk so harshly and then Backpedal on so many different subjects, this often.

    Dana realized Overeems career wasn’t completely done after this and he can still make a buck… “Oh OVEREEM? YEA THAT GUYS A FUCKING STUD OM NOM NOM REEM BALLZ”

  8. Nunya says:

    The Sonnen fight was a let down. To knee a guy when he is down, legal or not, it just seems wrong. The thing about this incident is that it was blatant. Usually the grounded fighter would be rushed to mount him or be on top in a dominant position to ground & pound. Nota good fight for UFC. As for Alistair, it was a bad decision to test bad in the biggest fight of his life, but any numb nutts out there can take PED’s, but not many can compete at the elite heavyweight level in MMA. The Reem is good for the sport. He just has to keep it clean. The fight with JDS would probably be the one of the biggest fight for the UFC. Dont really care about the drama, i just want to see that fight!

  9. jbroce says:

    there IS a difference between telling the comission ahead of time you do TRT and going over your limits, and someone who says they are all natural, dont do any supplements only hard work and look like the hulk, then pissing hot.
