Overeem explains Lesnar call out


After his win over Frank Mir at UFC 169, Alistair Overeem told Joe Rogan exactly who he wanted to fight next: Brock Lesnar. The call out was a weird one as Lesnar hasn't fought in two years, but Overeem explained where it came from to Ariel Helwani on the MMA Hour:

"I believe I read somewhere that he wanted to come back, and that he believed he didn't fight because of the health conditions and that it would have been different if he was healthy," Overeem told host Ariel Helwani. "He was talking about maybe a comeback, and I thought he wanted to fight me because of his last fight, maybe a rematch. With Brock, you have to take it with a grain of salt."

Does Overeem get PPV points?

I like Reem, but it was a silly move on his part. Sure, it's a payday. But Brock is in the WWE through wrestlemania 31 in 2015. He's not in the UFC. He's not even fighting anymore. Most importantly, Brock didn't say anything himself about coming back or wanting to fight AO. So yes, calling him out is in fact a bitch move. Call out JDS or Bigfoot. You know, a UFC heavyweight you may actually fight before 2016.

^ Serious?Edit: I just researched it for a couple minutes and there seems to be a consensus online that tren makes you sweat a lot. I would still think he just literally came from a gym to the show and didnt give himself that hour or so of cooling down your body needs and that hes just one of those guys that sweats a lot. He may or may not be on steroids currently though, haha.

I just watched the MMA Hour with Overeem on it, and I noticed that by the end of the interview, he had literally soaked his sweatshirt with sweat... WTF??? You can literally skip to certain parts of the interview and watch the sweatstains grow. Did anyone else notice this or is it a big *beep* for me?I know some people sweat a lot and he might have just come from training but.. holy shit!... lolRandom I know but I couldnt believe how bad it was at the end.See for yourself:https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bf2ie3CCIAAgyQY.jpg:large

I don't think it came off the best but the idea was sound. He's just telling anyone that will listen that he's still here and he's the reason Brock isn't around anymore.
