Overeem is a prolific steroid user. Sorry to some, but this is an obvious fact. Its funny, because I thought he was a much more dynamic striker before he packed on all that unnecessary muscle and excessive water weight. Its an obvious reason why he wont fight inside the US and why he has not fought for Strikeforce in so long.
Most people know what changes happen to the human body once one stops using performance enhancing drugs. Especially anabolic ones where the body's natural testosterone is shut down. Couple that with the mental issues such as depression it is a recipe for failure. It is most likely the primary reason for the lackluster performances of some who made the transition from Japan to US organizations that test regularly for performance enhancers.
