    So what the fuck is going to happen if AO pisses hot after the fight? He gets to walk around and say hes the best in the world lol?

    There better be extensive testing done before this fight or it'll just taint the title imho. I want to see AO pass a UFC random drug tests weeks before the fight, one days before, then one after.

    Im sure JDS would have no problem with doing that, Something tells me AO would. Especially since yanno, he ran out on the last one.

    Get the money dolla dolla bills ya'll

    In all seriousness im very disapointed in this fight, Theres a boat load of Hws that Ao could fight to A.)Prove that hes clean, B.)Prove he can get a top win without cheating, and C.) Get some more fan recognition.

    Hes going to come back into a title shot and the casual fan is just going to be like "Who?..Oh that guy, why hasnt he been fighting latley...Oh really, then why is he getting a title shot?"

    But as you said man.

    Oh...probably none, because he's done proving his innocence with his own personal random drug tests. Surprise, I'm going to test myself today? Really?

    Will be interesting to see where they actually have the fight take place. I can see it not being in Nevada and more likely in a place that the commission that doesn't do their own testing. That way he only has to pass the post fight test.

    Not to mention he's had all this time while on suspension to cycle as much as he pleases because he knows he's not getting tested.

    This one's about money.

    If Cormier fights AO, he undoubtedly takes him down and mauls him. The UFC doesn't want to risk losing a potential cash-cow to a virtually unknown at this point in their careers.

    They need to exploit the striking battle and overhype the shit out of it.

    They shouldn't be rewarding Overeem with a title shot after all the stunts he pulled.

    He should be fighting at least one more clean fight before getting a title shot. Send him back to Strikeforce to fight Cormier or Barnett first then if he wins maybe think about a title shot.

    I guess this means Werdum/Cormier?
    Absolutely feel the same the way. I understand that star power affects title shots, but I really dislike that star power also affects how people caught cheating are treated.

    Maybe it means that Josh Barnett is coming to the UFC after all

    i think overeem should fight jds his frst fight back wether or not jds is still champ. jds is a phenominal striker but i still believe cain is bettr all around specialist especially cardio so i still pikin cain to take back belt

    Good. I hope he tries to get Werdum and DC to fight each other... I do honestly beilve that Werdum himself wants to fight DC, but his management has convinced him that it isnt in his best interest...

    I know some will say that a fight with JDS or AO would be more intriguing because it is a rematch... but I disagee in this case... He KTFO by JDS, and that was when JDS was still a young fighter... Watching both of their fights since then... nothing indicates anything would change... Yes, they both improved, but this stylistic clash, still favors JDS, and always will... imo, thats just how it is. And I dont think I need to bring up Werdum/AO 2... Dana would flip a switch if he Werdum tried to pull that shit in the UFC.



    JDS vs. AO is a huge fight. It will sell well and it will undoubtedly determine who is deserving of being the #1 HW in the world...


    I wonder if AO has lost some of his luster or if he could have ring rust by then... It does make sense to get him a quick fight before then... Possibly Bigfoot? Get more hype around him, also giving him a legit test.
