I love how everyone is ranting about how overeem was caught for peds after the loss. You know the guys that won has been busted too right? Do you hate him also? Do you hate Lesnar? Would you hate Cain if we found out he had juiced at some point? So many of you guys are black and white on the ped issue and I think you guys need to take step back and realize there is a lot of grey area. I don't think someone should be shamed for the rest of their lives for being caught using a ped. If it really is that bad perhaps the punishment should be a lifetime ban as well. I would bet money that many fighters currently in the ufc have touched some sort of ped at some point in their lives.

He tried to clown bigfoot and it backfired in a horrible way. Can't help but wonder what the eff he was thinking.

I would support a lifetime ban for being caught using PED's. Hell, I'm more than willing to admit that I've been a big Palhares fan, but him testing positive after losing to Lombard has made me seriously question my support of him.

Honestly, I've disliked Overeem for a long while, him testing positive was just icing on the cake.

If he's lucky Bigfoot will win his next fight, and he can use the BF fight as a springboard for the HW title again, only this time Bigfoot will be much more credible as an opponent.
Yah no doubt. Everybody knows he's far more skilled, but BF fought a safe and smart fight. He was air tight in his defense and didn't allow much to get through. For a fighter who doesn't use much movement or combos it changed the dynamic of the fight. Alistair initiated the clinch and controlled em in the first, and took em down with a sweet slam in the second once again controlling the fight for the majority duration of the fight.

If his cornerman were smart they would have said what every other person in the world would know. BF is going to come out head hunting and going for broke. Alistair should look for the opening, move, OR take em down.

Well, I guess I have to end it with Proverb 16:18.

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Overeem has been through this path many times before. He knows what to do.

Here's his Tweet hehe...

I used to think that way also. What changed my mind was when I considered where one of my fav fighters of all time would be if he got busted and banned. Im talking about the legend that is Wandy. Wandy gets no hate at all for his ped use in pride but it was obvious he was juicing. I can't hate one of the guys that made me love mma in the first place.

Another thing that softened me up on the issue was the rampant approval of TRT. So some fighters have crooked doctors and lawyers so they get to cheat? Sonnen, Vitor, Randy, Nate and anyone else on TR is just as much a cheat in my eyes.

TRT is a huge problem in the sport, at best it allows a fighter to side-step the problems that past steroid use can cause, at worst, it keeps a fighter's career dragging on long past it should, and could lead to serious damage.

Oh my god. my world just collapsed. first 2 rounds were nice, at the end of second Bigfoot connected with his knee...but damn, that was one hell of a knock-out :S I had like 4 mill credits on Reem for this one. I guess we need to wait a bit longer for Overeem's title shot now...

Yea Bigfoot wanted to keep going but Dean had to grab him and actually try to drag him away for like a couple of seconds until Bigfoot finally stopped. I wonder what wouldve happened if Bigfoot got loose, would he have taken a couple of more shots? If so, does he get DQ'd or suspended?

I think people as over reacting to Big Foot's actions at the end of the fight... he wasn't going to beat up Overeem... he was just yelling and venting his frustrations over the shit talking.
