That might be the worst photoshop I've ever seen

I have always been a massive Overeem fan but I've said this before, Overeems chin is gone.
On a side note.. I have been away from this site for a while and I'm happy to be back.
Alistair Overeem on Anthony Johnson's criticism: 'That’s like p-ssy behavior'
Alistair Overeem is focused solely on Friday’s UFC Fight Night 50 showdown with Ben Rothwell, but he can’t ignore the fact a fight with former Blackzilian teammate Anthony Johnson might be imminent.
Ever since Overeem (37-13 MMA, 2-2 UFC) departed from the Florida-based fight camp earlier this year, Johnson (18-4 MMA, 9-4 UFC) hasn’t spoke fondly of his interactions with “The Reem.” He has called Overeem a poor training partner who did not fully commit to the “team” aspect of the training environment.
Overeem spent one fight camp in Thailand following his exit from the Blackzilians, but he’s now found a comfortable home with Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in Albuquerque, N.M.
The situation came to a head this past month when news surfaced UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones was out of his highly anticipated UFC 178 grudge match with Daniel Cormier as a result of an injury sustained training with Overeem.
Johnson was very vocal about the incident in the media. He accused Overeem of being someone who hurts training partners “accidentally on purpose,” and he then proceeded to call out the former Strikeforce, DREAM and K-1 kickboxing champion to a future showdown.
Overeem had initially avoided replying. However, he recently told MMAjunkie that the bold statements from “Rumble” stem from jealousy.
Overeem wouldn’t elaborate on what exactly he meant by “jealousy,” but he said he doesn’t care to investigate why Johnson seemingly holds a grudge against him. Moreover, if Johnson has grievances to air, Overeem doesn’t understand why he can’t attempt to share them in a private setting.“(He said that out of) jealousy,” Overeem said. “I can’t think of any other explanations. I have no relationship with the guy.”
After hearing comments from both sides, perhaps the best way to resolve the situation is inside the UFC octagon. The big sticking point, though, is the fact Overeem competes in the heavyweight division while Johnson is in the midst of a strong run toward a title shot at light heavyweight.“All this talking to the media? I don’t get,” Overeem said. “Where I come from, if I have a problem, I’m coming directly to you and I’m asking you what’s up. For me, that’s like p-ssy behavior. Maybe I’m missing something and I’m just crazy. On the other hand, I do feel honored people are saying my name in the media. It must mean I have some sort of importance.”
Johnson fought at heavyweight as recently as this past year, and Overeem has spent time at 205 pounds in the past, though he hasn’t had an official contest in the division since 2006.
Overeem’s attention is on Friday’s bout against Rothwell (33-9 MMA, 3-3 UFC), which serves as the FOX Sports 1-televised UFC Fight Night 50 co-main event at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Ledyard, Conn.. However, he can’t deny Johnson has jumped into his crosshairs for the future.
“I have different priorities right now, but I could definitely see that fight happening in the future.”

Anthony Johnson: Alistair 'Oversh-t' is the biggest p-ssy in the heavyweight division
Things between former teammates in Anthony Johnson and Alistair Overeem are starting to get ugly.
A couple of weeks back, when Jon Jones got injured while training with Overeem, Johnson opened up to Fighters Only saying that his former teammate had that reputation of hurting and bullying fighters during their time at the Blackzilians camp:
Overeem has since replied, stating that his comments are probably just stemming from envy."He did some things here that were like that... Greg Jackson says it wasn't on purpose, but I know the man and when he was here he was always hurting somebody. Accidentally on purpose. And it ain't because he's clumsy, he ain't clumsy, he would just hurt you."
"I've seen the guy do it. I've seen him basically bullying and stuff."
The back and forth didn't end there, as 'Rumble' had a few things to say on twitter:"Jealousy. I can’t think of any other explanations. I have no relationship with the guy," Overeem told MMA Junkie. "All this talking to the media? I don’t get. Where I come from, if I have a problem, I’m coming directly to you and I’m asking you what’s up. For me, that’s like p-ssy behavior."

Them some fighting words.
I think the UFC will consider the Rumble AO possibility once Rumble earns his next loss at LHW.
And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus
Rumble vs Reem at 205 makes sense as a consolation prize if he gets out of this fight relatively unscathed and Gus wants to hold off of AJ's callout, which he already basically declined.
"I leave this as a declaration of intent, so no one will get confused. 1: Si vis pacum para bellum. Latin. If you want peace, prepare for war. 2: Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family. 3: In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacies, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue natural justice. This isn't vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance. Punishment "
