Dos Santos Calls Overeem a Joke | UFC NEWS

For the second time, Junior Dos Santos will not be fighting Alistair Overeem.  In 2012, “The Reem” failed a random pre-fight drug test, and now in 2013, he has pulled out of a match with JDS because of an injury.


“I think this guy,” said Dos Santos, “I don’t have too much to say about him because he’s a joke.  He says a lot of trash things and he’s a disrespectful guy.  And I think their last fight, Bigfoot Silva, my friend Bigfoot Silva put him in his place…  [Overeem] love media.  He love[s] to talk trash.  Win the fight inside the cage, not outside the cage.  He don’t win the fight with talk.  He’s a trash guy.”


Dos Santos reiterated his stance on Overem while looking forward to the Dutch fighter’s replacement, Mark Hunt.  He said, “Alistair Overeem is… I have nothing to say about this guy.  He pulled out one more time for the fight, so I have nothing to say about him.  What I care now is about Mark Hunt.  Mark Hunt is a really tough fighter, he hits very hard, so I have to take care of that.  I think it’s going to be a good fight for the fans.”


While the much-anticipated match between JDS and Alistair Overeem will have to wait indefinitely, fans can take solace in the guaranteed heavy-hitting fight between Dos Santos and Mark Hunt.  The two are set to face off at UFC 160 on May 25 in a fight to determine the number one contender at heavyweight.

    I always liked JDS, but he’s starting to sound like a jackass. Bigfoot didn’t put anyone in his place, he got schooled for two rounds and landed a fortunate punch in the third.

      you mean to say. Overeem is so overated that the out grappled Bigfeet for 2 rounds, Gassed off of holding a goliath on the floor/cage for 15 mins then got KNOCKED THE FUCK OUT. not hit with a fortunate punch. Bigfeet was ALIVE AND WELL and KNOCKED HIM THE FUCK OUT.
      its overated now… he proved it by coming in his first 2 UFC fights with Chin up-Hands down.

      • The Way Of The Dutchman says:

        Outgrappeled for 2 rounds? Did you even see the fight? Overeem kept it standing, was intentionally holding his hands down and was bobbing and weaving, making Bigfoot miss. That went pretty well for two rounds with one takedown in the second and then he got caught the third.

        • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

          Word…..except that Overeem gassed in the third and couldn’t move quick enough. His T was way low post-fight testing. Hmmmmmm…maybe he needs some of dat TRT schtuff. Ah Garuuuntee,,,

    JDS needs to take Sonnen’s trash-talk course cuz he’s not too good at it. Overeem needs to cycle those steroids better so he doesn’t gas out like he did. JDS better show something in his next fight or he’ll be cutting to 205.

    Sad to say, I don’t think JDS will stand with him, and try to out strike him. My bet is JDS will try to take Hunt down and submit him, which will turn into a boring fight. Bc we all want to see someone get knocked out. Sadly, I bet we won’t see this happen, b/c JDS wants to win (big pay for heavy weight championship fight), more than give the fans what we’re expecting.

    JDS better show something? Some of you assholes on here are idiots. JDS lost ONE fucking fight in the UFC and you bad asses are talking shit? You should get in the cage & see how well you do. Show something lol considering hes knocked out more people in the HW division then anybody else has. If any of you think JDS isnt going to stand with Hunt youre out of your mind. JDS has 1 sub win and it was 7 years ago, dont foresee a sub attempt coming anytime soon against Hunt. Maybe against Cain if they rematch.

  6. Nick says:

    Nah i’m pretty sure he’s calling him trash for talking trash, getting busted for PEDs and pulling out of a fight. You have to face it Alistair is an arrogant bastard who could’ve easily bested Bigfoot if he wasn’t so disrespectful. He even probably has what it takes to be a champ but his bullshit gets the best of him.

  7. UFC 84 Forever says:

    I don’t like Overeem, and he might be overrated but that doesn’t make him a joke. I hope JDS’ head is screwed on straight, cuz the beating Cain put on him could change him, that kind of humiliation and decimation can change a man; he’d better get it all together…
