Werdum: Giving a title shot to Overeem 'not right'
Overeem hasn't tested positive for any anabolic steroids, but the results from a random screening by the Nevada State Athletic Commission last March showed the fighter had abnormally high levels of testosterone. This is reason enough for the Brazilian to accuse the Dutch striker of cheating.
"Yeah, for sure," Werdum said when asked if he feels Overeem uses steroids, "because he had that positive test.
"Everybody knows because he's too big. It's not normal. The guy's too strong."
An immediate title fight following a suspension is disrespectful, according to Werdum.
"[For] Overeem to come back now and fight for the title, it's not good," he said, "because he [has] no respect for me and other guys.
"I'm training every day; he [tests] positive … it's not right."
