Overeem looks to get conditional license.

This is becoming a fucking joke. Finally Keith Kizer does something I completely

agree with, when he says Overeem has no chance of getting license early. The sport is young, and on the cusp of breaking through the world dominated by the “Big 3”, but this is the type of incident that drives the average fan away. Mr. Overeem needs to take his medicine(without testosterone), and start playing the humble athlete.
Also, I spoke to an orthopedic surgeon recently and asked him about anti-inflammatory medication that is combined with testosterone. He said he had never heard of such a thing! He also stated that if the mix was made by the doctor, non disclosure of the testosterone could result in the doctor loosing his license.

There is no doubt Alistair Overeem is a great fighter, and there is no doubt he is a legitimate contender, however it is my contention that no athlete is bigger than the sport, by attempting to fight early, it seem Mr Overeem thinks differently.

  1. It is a shame, also because from what I have heard Overeem is the nicest guy in the world, and represents the sport very well in almost every other way. I think his legal defense really got in the way of his credibility.
