    Default Bas Rutten rips Alistair Overeem for testosterone usage

    http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2014/4/5/...-peds-steroids
    Bas Rutten went on Submission Radio and pulled no punches when asked about his countryman Alistair Overeem:

    "Like I said before, when I talk about this, people (are) gonna say like 'aww he's a hater because he left Golden Glory' and it's not. I always said it. It's like when I said he had a glass jaw, people go like 'aww he's just saying that'. I said look at his record dude. Look at his record between 2005 and 2007. Shit I think he got knocked out like Five times. And he knows he has that also but, they gave him this whole new fighting style there at Golden Glory at Maeng Ho gym with Cor Hemmers which is single shots. One hand at his jaw and with the other hand, you know, knock out. And everything he can throw. If he throws a left hook to the head, right hand at the jaw, if he throws a right straight, left hand on the jaw."

    "We know it now, you know. He got caught on steroids, then he got tested the next time he couldn't use and he lost. His testosterone - I heard, read on the internet, I'm just saying that it doesn't have to be true but it was out there in the news everywhere - he had a level of One hundred and sixty. So now Nevada says, well that means with prior usage you can't fight in Nevada anymore. And I think it maybe did something to him mentally, I don't know. His last fight he fought good again. I thought in his last fight he used power but not as much power against Mir. He was always very careful, you know, not to run out of gas, he went the full distance, he looked really good all the three rounds. He doesn't throw as hard anymore but he doesn't need to because he has that power. But coming back from getting Knocked out a couple of times, it's a hard one for him you know, and if he can come back, this was just, people were complaining that he didn't finish Mir. But you have to understand if you get knocked out three times in a row it does something to you mentally, you know, so he played a very smart game. He came in, he said 'I'm gonna win this fight, will get my confidence back and now I'm gonna go to the next fight'. And now next fight were gonna see what he's made off."
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    Actually it seemed pretty fair. Bas doesn't like Reem, many people don't. But he was balanced in his analysis of the man's career lately. Most people believe Reem had been using something for years. It doesn't matter if that's true or not, there is no real test to show if someone had been using synthetic illegal substances for years. If there were, it would eliminate steroids from sports. Because it would kill the concept of "cycling". I think if such a test where to ever become reality, we would be surprised to find that a lot of "clean" fighters were not always so "clean". Still a fan of the Reem, not popular, don't care.

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    I didn't see any "rip" part.

    He said that Overeem has a glass jaw, it is something that everybody knows.
    He said that he got caught for roids, and that is also something everybody knows.

    From there, he praised him for the Mir fight and defended him from the critics.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Some fighters hope to be "ripped" like this.

    Bas is pretty much right about everything he said. And he did it in such a way that didn't go "too far" with any insults.

    Bas is the voice that should be "of MMA" in all honesty.
