Is Overeem on or off steroids?

Alright, so I'm doing a research project in one of my college research writing classes concerning different performance enhancing drugs, drugs, and marijuana (since those seem to be the top three types of busts now a days) and how the NSAC and other commissions fine and punish fighters. The two main fighters i am talking about in this paper are Nick Diaz, who got suspended and fined for marijuana in his system and Alistair Overeem and his recent 14:1 testosterone level. Who might still be able to fight in his title fight. I need to have a survey in my paper and i thought this whole is Overeem on or off roids (considering he fought at 205 once in his career and now is a ripped HWY and Japan doesn't do drug tests) would be an awesome thing to find out what the people think for my paper.

Well, I think it's pretty obvious he has been using "something" considering he just failed his drug test by a lightyear lol

As for the point you made about Nick Diaz, I think that's BS that he cannot fight due to testing for Weed when all these losers are using TRT and getting away with it, what a backwards ass country we live in. Worse thing is, poor guy does have a license for marijuana lol

Unless Overeem's banging the five hottest women in the world at the same time there's really no way to justify a 14:1 ratio.

I mean, if you think about it 5 years is a long time and it's possible he may have done that but he'd literally have to work out and eat right every single day of a five year period. Sadly as much as I'd like to believe he is clean it's not likely. A 31 year old man does NOT need TRT unless he's abused steroids.

Ya, definitely. If he gets to fight against JDS with his huge ratio while Nick got suspended for something that doesnt enhance your performance but actually makes you worse. It's complete B.S. Right now, I'd rather see Chieck Kongo fight JDS than Overeem! I'm not a huge Diaz or Overeem fan but i think the NSAC needs to be a little more consistent with their decisions and suspensions.

could he have put on that much muscle naturally over the time period? yes. If he followed a perfect diet and ratio of Training:nutrition:Recovery. But id still have to lean to the side that he did use some type of anabolics.

I still don't think it's impossible to put on so much muscle in so little time but now it's obvious he used testosterone. It might not be the most potent steroid out there but it's still a steroid.

I have a hard time believing he could naturally put on all of that muscle while training and fighting 4 times a year.

Exactly, and you've got to think that he surely hasnt been caught on the very first time he's used it.

Yeah, it's pretty dumb when you can fight under influence of somethng that makes you faster, stronger, better than what you really are and you can't use something that makes you dumber and slow, lol.

People are acting like Overrem has ever tested positive before.
May i remind you guys that He never poped before,
so he probably never fought with that kind of huge ratio.
In my book that makes him a lot better that every single one of those guys that have been fighting with that kind of an edge for years now.
And it makes me sick to the stomach that people praise them instead of calling them what they are: CHEATERS!
Not saying that the reem isn't one, but at least on fight night he comes within legal levels.
