Last night Alistair Overeem made his first public appearance and made his first statement ever since testing positive for an elevated testosterone ratio. He didn’t even make a defense, referring not to comment on the situation. You can watch it, and the entire video, below.
He did talk about the fight against Junior Dos Santos, which hasn’t been cancelled as of yet. On the champion:
“I am bigger, I am stronger, I am better in the stand-up and I’m better on the ground. So for me, I don’t think about what he is going to do to me. I think about what I am going to do to him and I am only thinking about what I am going to do to him. I am going to be ready wherever the fight takes me. I do prefer to strike, I do prefer a knockout over a submission win but I’m going to be ready for anything … I’m going to get this guy, I’m going to beat him. Nothing scares me about Junior dos Santos. Everything he’s doing, I’ve seen it before. I’m not worried about it, I’ve experienced it all. There’s no fear, there’s only two things – trained and untrained and when I step into the Octagon on May 26 I’m going to be trained.”
