Overeem is still gonna take it. Overeem will win, and I will feel dirty for still liking him. That's how it's gonna go...my night anyways.
I started as one of you guys. Freaking out when someone gets caught cheating, dropping them off my fan list. If they weren't on my fan list I would simply assault them verbally via forum (accomplishing nothing, I am aware). Sherk and Barnett probably took most of my wrath. I'm sure some of my posts back then make me sound like a complete hypocrite, actually! I say that because I really don't care anymore.
I will start caring about ped abuse when the punishments start to mean something. I will start caring when there are not infinite loopholes. You guys remember this is the first time Overeem tested positive right? So clearly Overeem has been getting away with it for years.
Clearly Overeem has been abusing a ped of some sort and has been able to pass the tests. I'm not trying to insinuate that we should allow steroids. Rather, a stance should be taken. Either you guys who still feel outraged say something about it, the UFC adopts a much stricter policy, or their own punishments, or the athletic commisions need to enforce longer bans. What's 6 months when you only fight 3 times a year anyways? For some of these high profile guys it just means a little vacation time before the next big payday.
I'm sorry, but I decided a long time ago that if I want to remain a fan of MMA that I need to just go along for the ride and not start hating every fighter I like watching because he bent the rules. I love Wandy. I actually still love GSP. I love Overeem. I love Anderson. So I got one left that hasn't been seriously accused of being a cheater.
