    Default Werdum: Overeem changed completely without PEDs

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...-without-PEDs/

    Overeem fights Frank Mir at UFC 169 on Superbowl weekend. In an interview with MMAFighting's Guilherme Cruz, Fabricio Werdum, who lost a one-sided unanimous decision to Overeem in 2011, pulled no punches in saying why he thinks Overeem has faltered lately.

    "He lacks a little bit in gas because of his steroids," said Werdum. "He changes a lot if you take his juice off. Everybody saw what happened. Overeem is one fighter with his juice, but he changes completely without the juice. They took his powers."

    "Letís see how he does against Frank Mir, if he changed his strategy or training. Frank Mir is not doing well recently too, but I believe Overeem will defend the takedowns and knock him out. Overeem is a good fighter, but letís how he does without his juice."

    "I donít like Overeem very much. Not because of the fact that we fought, but I think heís too cocky. But heís a good fighter, a strong guy, a good striker. I respect him for everything he has done in MMA and K-1."

    Overeems gas tank sucks period. He still hasn't gotten dominated in his fights, just fades and finds a way to lose. Werdum is still butthurt he didn't win the rematch flopping on his back begging overeem to jump in his guard because he lacked the skill to take him down. I can't wait till jds knocks him out again or Cain mauls him, that's if he gets his shot. Fights against Russow, Nelson, and Nog shouldn't give him a shot imo.

    Ever sinve his sub of Fedor I feel he gets overpraised, he's a good fighter but he's still not beat anybody to garner a shot or so much praise.

    Why all the Werdum hate? I think if anything, Werdum is underrated by a lot of people.

    His bjj praise is well deserved, that's it imo. That second Overeem fight really pissed me off and I can't look at him the same anymore. I was rooting for him then but now I just can't wait till he loses.

    Sadly, in that fight, I thought he won every single exchange but was hell bent on dropping to guard and looked like he was getting punked.

    He was landing more but they were more pitter patter type combos so he could set up the td. Overeem hit him less but with some hard shots and also threw him around a bit.

    Overeem was too worried of the td to keep his hands up.

    Fedor and Bigfoot were years ago and not even in the ufc tho. Give him Barnett/Mir winner, I'd even be interested in giving Miocic a bump in competition and have him face Werdum.

    As far as Werdum/Overeem 3, I think it'd be more of the same with nobody doing much. If Werdum actually tried opening up striking Overeem puts him out before he gasses.

    Werdum beats an un-roided AO 8 times out of 10.

    Overeem has never had a good gas tank. He's been gassing in fights years before he got huge. Doesn't change the fact that he uses steroids. Just important to know that he's gassed a lot over the years. Hell, I remember him gassing against Chuck in their short fight, and that was about 9-10 years ago at this point.

    Overeem's less than stellar/inconsistent cardio is well documented.
