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.”
