Schiavello defends Overeem on Inside MMA

source: hd.net
 

Recently on Inside MMA, Kenny Rice and Bas Rutten, along with an all-star panel of Joe Rogan, Michael Schiavello, and Josh Barnett voiced their opinions on Alistair Overeem's recent failure of a surprise blood test.

Schiavello spoke in Overeem's defense, saying "I just wanna chime in here on a couple things that have been playing on my mind, the last week or so, since the news of Alistair broke. Alistair doesn't have a license with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, so how are they testing him in the first place when he doesn't have a license with them? By what jurisdiction are they testing him?

"And B, everyone seems to be hanging Alistair out to dry. They've been nailing him to the cross and crucifying him, but it's still two months away from his fight. You know, he hasn't technically cheated. Because, unless he pisses hot on the fight night, how could he possibly have cheated? There's still an opportunity he can get from the 14:1 down to the allowed 6:1 level by fight time. But we're calling him out as a cheat, two months out from a fight?"

The argument that the NSAC had no jurisdiction to test Overeem because the conditional license he was granted at UFC 141 expired on Dec. 31, 2012 is not valid, as the NSAC held that Overeem was subject to two further PED screenings over the next six months.

Him being annoying latley on the show doesnt take away from his accomplishments. I'd have no problem sayin that to him if asked or it came up either.

Wow, a lot of Bas bashing, I'm surprised. Bas may or may not have a good reason for being on the "not like the Reem" side of things these days. But be sure of this, Bas can kick some ass. Most of you, if not all of you bashing on the Bas would be screaming like a little girl if you were to be locked in a room with him, like him or not he is one of the greats and a very, very accomplished and knowledgeable Mixed Martial Artist. Just ask some of the pros what they think of Bas and you will see the type of respect he gets.
