    Overeem isn't roiding. A six foot five man can put on the weight he has in the time he's taken, stop hating.

    "Possible" eventually has to bow to "probable." It appeared that Megareem put on a substantial amount of weight and muscle from the K-1 WGP to Dynamite, a span of 26 days.

    Schiavellio and Mayhem even commented on it during Dynamite. I'd be very surprised if all of Megareem's weight gain has been natural.

    Fedor's management is a bit too busy making him "the modest hero of the simple people" to my taste, all too similar to some old Soviet working class hero models.
    However, don't get me wrong - Fedor is definitely one of my favorite fighters, next only to Wanderlei Silva. I personally just begin to get a bit tired of all this "Fedor is a model human being" stuff.

    I could point to dozens of moments when his image shows fractures: For example, in one training video, he's running a few miles with other Red Devil fighters, and the English commentator gets all humpdy-dumpdy about how modest and fine Fedor is about running with a priest and some friends. - All sounds very nice and sound... Until you get a close-up of the scene and realize that Fedor wears a way better running suit than the rest and has headphones in both ears. - I LOLed.

    That. If Overeem isn't doped, noone is.

    His own statements about his rather unexplainable growth make me grin every time.

    "I eat lots of carrots and a lot of horse flesh."

    Yeah, Alistair, sure.

    I saw a video of Overeem where he explains his diet, the guy eats a lot in a day. Will try to track it down.

    As long as you can hide it you will dope in professional sports. So of course he is doping. He's rich enough to afford the good stuff that noone can prove.

    This fight could be similar to the Rogers fight.

    Ahh...ok that makes sense. You're right, they've been playing up the "humble man" angle much more in the past few months.

    So you're also an expert in human physiology as well? Your judo dojo should get an award for producing expert strikers with degrees in biology.

    As the great warrior-poet Richard Dawkins once said, "Prove it."

    Fedor is clearly not this super nice guy. He's shown many times that he's a hardass and a fucking asshole.

    But guess what? That means he's just a human being and that OMG one day he might just get beaten.
