Dana White "Still Angry" At Overeem, Doesn't Know If He'll Be Cut | UFC NEWS

“I’m still angry. I’m not angry at the commission, the commission is doing there job. That’s what they do. I sat down in a room with Alistair and he told me ‘They can test me anytime they want, I’m the most tested athlete in all of sports.’ We’ll see what happens, I don’t know (if he’ll be cut). This isn’t really my deal. I have not (talked to him personally) and I will not. When an athletic commission, whether its Nevada or New Jersey or whoever it is, suspends somebody or does whatever, denies them a license, we follow. We ran towards regulation, we want to be regulated.”

    Dana isn’t going to cut Overeem.. He brings in to much money and he is a top HW(PED’s or not)// He didnt cut Sonnen, so I highly doubt he is going to cut Overeem! Plus Overeem hasnt sat in front of the commission yet, so Dana will wait on that as well..

      I agree. Funny though, he didn’t seem so angry when Sonnen tested positive.

        cuz sonnen told him befor hand bcuz sonnen is a smart con man…also u asshole fuking funny werdum deserve shot 2nd when 2 fights ago he lost…1 goood fight against nelso gets u 2nd for a shot?? ok

    • Rob says:

      I don’t think Overeem’s that big a deal – they never got Fedor in his prime, did that hurt the company? No, they kept on growing. And keep on growing. The UFC is like Man U or the Yankees – no player is bigger than the team.

      And the difference between Overeem’s situation and Sonnen’s? Well, Sonnen lost while pumped up on test so he just looks like a dick. Overeem on the other hand, won the belt.

      One situation shouts “look, steroids don’t pay. Cheaters never win”. The other rocks the credibility of the sport. I’m sure Dana doesn’t want the UFC to become the new MLB.

      Personally, I’d like to see a division where the fighters can get ‘roided up on whatever they want. Like Top Fuel MMA.

        hahaha hahah hahah hahah do u ever actually watch ufc moron???? overreem did not win any belt idiot…he was fighting for the belt…wtf ,,u know he was fight JDS for the title?? read u writing…when he beat brock he was not the champ anymore,brock lost the belt long ago…where did u come from??

      • Mr. Lololol says:

        1. Alistair Overeem won no belt in that bout against Brock Lesnar. He earned the opportunity to fight Junior Dos Santos for the belt, but he messed that up. That’s what all these Overeem headlines on your newsfeed are about, I knew you were wondering.

        2. You’re looking for ‘Felony Fights’.

  2. Xaninho says:

    Tendentious bad article.

    DW never said he would cut Overeem. He would respect the NSAC’s decision if they deny Overeem a license, and not by-pass that decision by applying for a license at another state. So if Overeem has to wait a year before he can apply for a NSAC license he won’t fight for a year.

  3. jbeamazing says:

    after all this hype a year from now when he gets his juice technique down and they let him fight jds he will get knocked out he isn’t that special the guy has beat nobody and his chin looks like glass joes

    he has a million dollar body and a 10 cent chin

  4. KIDD433 says:

    Danas pissed about the Ovareem situation no doubt.but i guarantee you HE WILL NOT CUT THE REEM.just expressing figuratively to entertain the media.typical political strategy.

  5. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    I agree if he didn’t didn’t cut Sonnen who not only CHEATED and was JUICED up duringa title fight and was convicted of a FELONY FRAUD charge all around same time how could he possibly cut Overeem. Plus Dana knows better than anyone most of his fighters are JUICING and without year rounbd random testing they wil continue to JUICE all they want. Anyone can pass a ROID test when they know when tehy will be tested. Or you can just fight like Sean Sherk drop off map for 2-3 years at a time and get 100% JUICED to the hilt and fight when you have the most advantage. More money a fighter makes the better the PED he will have access to. No doubt in my mind GSP has been on HGH for 5 years plus and can afford all the latest greatest non-detectables like Barry Bonds got thru Victor Conte/Balco
