As you can imagine, UFC president Dana White wasn’t all too pleasant when asked about the recent failed drug test by Alistair Overeem. “The Reem” tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone during a surprise pre-fight test last week.
“I am beyond pissed about this. I’m so (expletive) mad right now I can’t even begin,” said White, in an interview with The Star Phoenix. “How (expletive) stupid do you have to be? Seriously dumb.
“Anybody who’s using (performance-enhancing drugs) right now is an absolute (expletive) moron. It’s beyond – what’s the word I’m looking for – it’s beyond belief. It’s beyond comprehension. You’re an absolute moron, a brain-dead absolute (expletive) dummy. It goes beyond a guy having any common sense whatsoever.”
White added that Overeem told both himself and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta that he could pass any and all drug tests given to him when he signed his contract. Overeem seems unlikely to have his shot at UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos now with the failed test, though he does have the option to have a second sample tested.
