Reem: I don't need warm up, ready for title fight


"I am the most tested athlete in the world right now," said Alistair Overeem. "And you can see I am stil 265, still heavyweight, still going strong.

"Ask my sparring partners in the gym - still kicking ass.

"I can tell you something, I have not had time off since 2004."

"I think for me, this time off is perfect. After this, I have another four years of full dedication and devotion."

"For me it doesn't matter when I fight. I don't need to have a warm-up fight. I'm gonna leave that up to the gentlemen of the UFC to decide... If they want me to go for the title, I'm ready for that."

"(JDS) can talk all he wants. I know he was very happy that fight didn't happen... And he also knows I'm the biggest threat out there. He know when he is gonna fight me, there there is not escape from it.

I'm gonna lay low and fight whoever they put in front of me. But I'm gonna get my hands gonna be on and when I do, he's all mine."

Man if Reem does have to fight someone else first... This match would be awesome. It would be fireworks on the feet. I vote for this match up!

no no noUFC fans need to be reintroduced to the 'Reem so another fight is crucialHe should fight in a #1 contender fight and if he wins, he finally gets his title shot. But I'd like to see him face the loser of JDS/Cain to be honest but he probably wont wait that longEither way, he needs a high profile match first.

Tim Sylvia was given an immediate title shot after getting busted. So was Sean Sherk.

 I'm not sure DFW or the Fertitta's would be too keen on The Reem coming into a title shot, possibly winning, then testing positive for Roids.  He needs to prove he can pass a random drug test while working his way into a title shot.

I would not bet on him over Hunt.

The Barry Bonds of MMA. Captain Asterisk. It doesn't matter how much he cheats anyway. He couldn't even beat Werdum striking. JDS smashed Werdum and sent him to SF.Roy has a better chance at taking the belt.
