    Arggg I cant hear the Audio for crap, care to give a summarry of what they countered with? I know he released a press statement about being prescribed a anti inflamatory that unknowingly had testosterone in it, and I believe asked for some kind of ciontinuance to gather more info but what was the result of the hearing?

    And the end of the telenovela:

    Ogrereem gets suspended for nine months.

    That was pretty much the kindest they could get with him.

    I am pretty sure his ban will get lifted even sooner.

    ugh why cant these guys just come out and admit it when they get caught?

    "yep thats right i did it to get an advantage. cos every other ************ out there is doing it, cos you guys cant control it and make a level playing field. the industry forces us into a situation of having to choose between a career and being clean, then you **** us in the ass for it."

    he could then perhaps lunge across the table and murder several people in a psychotic rage with tears streaming down his cheeks. id ppv that.

    ^That.

    I think Chael Sonnen pointed out that Overeem looks like DJ from Street Fighter III.

    I, however, have another association:



    Ariel Helwani was, in fact, granted and interview.
    Then, his wife talked him out of it.

    Be afraid.

    I like how one of the commissioners is like "Hey, you can still fight on the New Year's card, since that's 2 days after your ban ends."

    I imagine he'll take his vacation time to perfect the art of staying at a 5:1 T/E ratio.

    Well, he fucked around and got burned for it.

    This is very upsetting. As a fan, I don't care for all this delay. When do I get to see Overeem ogre smash someone else?

    I somehow doubt the UFC will cut him, though. He's too big an international name to just set loose to fight for other promotions IMO.

    I really do wonder why they keep pulling out the "dur hur i didn't know" card. Has anyone ever bought it in the history of pro sports? It's not like it works anyway. I wish they'd just cut Overeem, but money talks and bullshit walks.
