Mark Bocek comments to MMASucka.
Bocek comments on the Alistair Overeem situation and feels a year ban would have been sufficient and wants more random testing in the sport.
“There’s definitely got to be some type of punishment. You can put any twist on it want. I’m no doctor I just think if your doctor’s telling you that you need to be on TRT and you need to be on medical marijuana, you shouldn’t be fighting. He wasn’t under license at the time, he’s trying to flee the building over another series of testing, it makes you wonder about everyone else. I would think one year punishment for a guy like Overeem,” he said.
“I think it’s a problem in every division. I think it’s just kind of become part of the sport. Definitely random testing could change or fix that. As you see with Overeem, he really wasn’t expecting that but it’s a part of any sport really. Any Olympic sport as well.”
Bocek also comments on the UFC 152 card which takes place in his home country on September 22nd
“I’d like to get on that card, absolutely. My body is a little banged up actually so Calgary [for UFC 149] is just a little too early for me.”
“Right now I just really need to recover and work on my weak areas and come back strong for Toronto.”Tags: alistair overeem, featured, Overeem, ufc, ufc news
