Roy looks like a total bum in that pic lmfao. I hope they keep doing these random tests for all cards, so there will be no way they can roid.

I don't really care much for that card to be honest. All HW so it's basically bound to be over fast or long and boring.

I'm going to be shocked if Overeem passes a random drug test. When I think of Overeem I think of Barry Bonds, I really like the Reem as a fighter but who here honestly doesn't have a gut feeling he is on steroids...

I've seen this Reem timeline hundreds of times and I don't think it's unnatural. Look how fast Frank Mir gained tons of muscle. It didn't even take him a full year to put on 30 pounds. Plus the 2007-2008 picture is from late 2008 and it doesn't show what he looked like in 2007. If you insert this as 2007 it doesn't look unnatural at all.

What exactly would you prefer here? You seem to be just shooting down this idea without offering any real alternative. You just sound whiny and conceited right now, with all due respect.

I think its a great idea. This will make others who possibly abuse the obvious timing of post fight drug tests by cycling it out shortly before think twice about it now and ultimately will drop the number of PED users in the UFC.

I'm not saying I'm sure he's on them, I'm saying if anyone is it's clearly Overeem. Sure it could be natural, absolutely, we will see after this test.

Well, you never know until they're tested. Nobody thought Leben or Josh Barnett were on the juice. Sometimes it's more complicated than "That guy looks big, he must've done roids".

A lot of people thought Leben was on steroids, he went from chubby alcoholic to ripped Spartan inbetween fights. Agreed about Barnett, yes phsique is not 100% correlated to steroid use, Royce Gracie got busted of all people. To maintain the extreme size and low body fat % that overeem does requires superhuman genetics or steroids. For the sake of mma I hope Overeem tests clean. It's a tough subject, hope they do more random testing though.

Guys like Brock, Junior, Palhares, Reem, etc are hardly EVER on steroids, they don't need them. The people who need steroids are the guys without their genes who want to look like them. Guys like Barnett who despite being in great shape look terrible with their shirt off.


Rumble Johnson IMO would never be on steroids but if Mark Hunt or even Jake Shields was caught roiding, it'd be much less of a surprise IMO.
