A few months ago I had a conversation with an MMA commentator you’ve probably seen on TV and he told me the reason Ubereem will never defend his belt in Strikeforce was solely due to the severity of drug testing in the states. This guy absolutely knew Alistair Overeem was doping and told me even through the use of ‘cycling‘, Ubereem would still fail. I can’t give his name away, I’m not that guy. However, if what he told me was true, Ubereem’s Missouri state fight license may be revoked (which, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t that bad). Brett Rogers was interviewed at Team Bodyshop and broke the news (via MMAConvert) that Ubereem will have to adhere to strict Olympic drug testing which generally means submitting a blood test to accompany your cup of warm urine.
We’ve been notified by [Missouri’s athletic] commission that testing will be strict. They’re going to use the same sort of testing that the Olympic commission uses, the same sort of testing that they use out here in California. So very strict steroid testing, and they’ve also been talking about [testing for HGH]. I don’t know if they can test for that, but it sounds like they’re gonna go to that level.
Worst case scenario, Ubereem defeats Rogers but fails the drug test. Does he lose his Strikeforce Heavyweight Belt or will the bout be ruled a ‘no-contest’. That’s a question I’m passively seeking an answer to along with the definition of ‘nougat’. [Source]
