  1. Thurgood Jenkins says:

    I wonder what his game plan will be come the 24th.

  2. Gabi says:

    He actually speaks it nicely and doesn’t have the stupid accent /prouncination people use (especially people who speak english first) simply because they are to lazy to really try to prounce the words in the language. I know that doesn’t mean anything but I was surprised. Lol
    But I do wonder what will be the defense at the hearing. Since no clues have been dropped or spoken of that I can find anywhere. He can’t say horse meat or other food since he already went through that and then if it is it just comes down to wtf moron should have learned.

    • Xaninho says:

      Dutch people are quite capable of learning other languages.

      • Gabi says:

        I know never meant to sound like they are dumb. I mean it’s a good thing he takes the effort on trying to sound fluent. I like smart fighters outside of the ring. Same reason Larry Fitzgerald is such an inspiring person. Dudes trying to finish his Dr and does tons of things charity and education wise for AZ. We love home hear. I like when fighters/athletes also train their brains. JDS speaks Spanish very well and it’s not his first language I respect him that much more for that. Get what I’m saying?

        • Xaninho says:

          Yeah I got it the first time lol!

          I was agreeing with you. I’m Dutch myself and know Dutch people take the extra effort to actually try and pronounce it the way it should be pronounced.

    • Reality says:

      English comes in different dialects and expressions so what may sound correct to you may sound incorrect to someone else. Therefore I wouldn’t call it laziness. It’s just how one is taught to speak the language.

  3. DMAC says:

    Reem bagged that reporter for sure, trying to speak their language works 99% of the time. Hope he has a well thought out plan for the NSAC, HW division needs a super star like him, too many blan fighters right now..

  4. Gabi says:

    Just really appreciate his effort I guess. Only if the steroids shadow wasn’t there, dude could be an embasadator you know. And yes I bet he banged that chick out. Lol. It is a good way to get chicks. Especially Spanish speaking girls love when dudes learn Spanish and actually sound pleasing to the ear, or in my case the ladies love my dialect of Spanish, especially Mexican girls, and that pisses Mexican dudes off been in a few fights due to this lol, Like how some people think a British accent is so sexy. And let’s be honest the half ass Spanish spoken by most people who took some Spanish classes sound like shit and robotish. You know instead of letting it flow off of the tongue. Same as if you learned a different language and spoke it nicely, if you talked to a native they would respect you that much more and it goes from there. Especially in Spanish due to be being a romantic language, (like Italian, French, Portuguese) compared to German Russian, hell even English. Lol.

    I just want to know the damn defense for the 24th.

    Oh yea Allister should roll around like Thunder Lips from Rocky. Lol w/ a grip of chicks in bikinis. Lol. Imagaine his corner filled w girls. That would be great. bring some light to that division.

  5. Lol says:

    Overeems excuse was that he eats baby cows infested with hormone shots for breakfast and dinner hence his high test levels

  6. slacker says:

    Don’t care much about Overeem now – big cheater.
