EDIT... this is my 500th post on here in 3 years.. Hope you enjoyed them lol thanks for reading.
a) WAMMA shouldn't be issuing any drug tests right now. Their "authority" is just something they decided they have, it's not legitimate in any way.

b) If you're going to give him a drug test on 24 hours notice (kind of silly imo, what if he's on vacation? What if he's training at high altitude? What if he's having a weekend with his girl and doesn't want to be bothered? It seems somewhat inflexible and unreasonable) then every fighter should be subject to that.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Rogerio Nogueira x2, not Rodrigo.

And btw, even though I agree with you that Overeem is good, your arguement sucks because anyone can fight good fighters, he lost all of those fights apart from Belfort, who was absolute garbage at these points in his career.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

I agree with that bit of info. Overeem has been asked in interviews about fighting Fedor and saying Fedor's management declined but then like Toxic said Fedor wanted to fight him when Overeem had other business to attend to.

Overeem was a middle of the road LHW, who simply roid his way into the HW division. He has proved nothing at HW.

Ok what the hell.

Overeem has improved dramatically, yes he is bigger (maybe roids) he hasn't been caught yet so he is innocent, either way he is one of the best MMA strikers if not the best.

Sure we haven't seen to much of him in MMA lately, but you don't need to be a scientist to work out that he will do extremely well against top tier opponents. He is probably the only heavyweight I would pick against Fedor right now, (maybe Cain)

Just because he hasn't been fighting in the sport doesn't mean you can't see how it will translate into MMA, especially with him fighting K1, which is probably the most benefical to MMA right now.

Overeem has become a kickboxing monster, we are lucky to have him fight in MMA, because it's a rare thing to have someone of his size and stand up skill in the sport. Whoever compared his k1 record to James Toney's boxing accomplishments needs to go have a sit in the corner and think about what you are saying, you are so far off the mark it's scary.

he actually weighed lighter than usual at the K1 event, or at least they billed him lighter. They had his weight down as 242lbs when i think he normally weighs around 250+. Theres no doubt that he is on roids and i think he knows that people know this, but he probably thought **** it almost all the other HWs are doing it so i may as well do it too.

How can you be so blind to post garbage about who Overeem has lost to in the past, have you ever watch him fight in the last 3 years since those losses because if you have how it is possible that you have failed to notice the the medium skilled LHW who lost to those great LHW's back then no longer exists, instead you have the most powerful and skilled HW in all of mixed martial arts, nobody has improved more than Overeem in the last 3 years and I do mean NOBODY.

sure the likes of Shogun and Little Nog may have beaten him back then but I would love to see ether be able to do that again now, seriously both skill and strength wise he has out grown them both while they remain the same in fact I would say even in the case of Shogun slightly lessor fighters than they where back then Overeem has become a much greater fighter and you dont need names on your record to be able to see that you just need to watch the guy fight to see that he has improved leaps and bounds.

Could steroids have aided his ridiculous level of improvement over the last 3 years? Maybe his body does open up undoubted suspicion, but you can't say for sure because he has never been tested positive so maybe he has just worked his ass off to improve both his skill and his strength, in which case he deserves credit as been the best HW in the world because that is what he has become, and in time the fans who dont see the skill when watching him fight and instead only look at ststs on a wiki page will see it to because no matter who they stick in front of him they are getting KO'ed.

ill be honest i dont folloe alistairs career much, but som1 on this showed me b4 and after pics of overeem and it seems humanly impossible to get that growth in a span like that, from skinny willy to dutch meathead, and ill say something controversial i think shogun would beat alistair again
