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).”
