Fabricio Werdum accuses Alistair Overeem of taking “gummy berry juice” to acquire “super powers”

Alistair OvereemIt’s commonly known throughout the mixed martial arts community that the Strikeforce Heavyweight Championship has gone undefended for quite some time now. Just shy of two years to be exact. Now with the recent addition of men such as Fedor Emelianenko, Fabricio Werdum, Brett Rogers and others, the spotlight shining on current heavyweight Strikeforce title holder Alistair Overeem is shining brighter than ever before.

No stranger to Overeem, Brailian Jiu-Jitsu specialist Fabricio Werdum has his own thoughts on the reasons behind why the man he holds a previous submission victory over has managed to avoid fighting on American soil for this extensive amount of a time.

“I cannot be 100-percent right about the reason he is taking so long to solve his issues and come to fight, but it seems either that the gummy berry juice he is taking to give him super powers is (causing) him to avoid fighting here in America or he is afraid of having no arms to fight after facing me one more time,” said Werdum in a recent conversation with MMA Weekly.

Being the gentleman he is, and understanding Overeem’s attachment to the belt, Werdum would be happy to allow Alistair to salvage a keepsake from his time spent as champion should the two meet in the future, explaining,”I will let him take some pictures with my belt and he will be able to keep good memories from his time as a Strikeforce champion.”

As it stands right now, Overeem has several kickboxing bouts set up overseas through the end of this year, but no news is available as to when he will be able to defend the Strikeforce heavyweight title.

    That’s one of the funniest headlines I’ve read in a while :)

    Defend at least every 6 months and you are a REAL CHAMPION.
    Overeem is just a paper chUmpion.

    Paper Chump funny

    Just like Mousasi said.

    There is something funny in the water over there in Japan, that is why they don’t wan to fight in the U.S.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    its nice to see fighters finally saying it publicly. maybe something will be done about it

  • Bullylover says:

    Overeem is funny, “I’ll let him take a couple of pitures with my belt to keep good memories as strikeforce champion” Man that was hilarious.

  • I can’t blame him for not fighting in Strikeforce though. Overeem is probably making way more moiney in K-1 right now since he has been tearing it up over there so bad. No reason for him to come back to the US when he can stay in Japan and make more cash.

  • Bullylover says:

    you mean he can stay in japan and keep juicing. Yeah that sounds about right.

  • metalmulisha says:

    American MMA fans really need to get off of their high horse when it comes to drug testing. I mean does it really make you feel better about yourself to post that shit constantly?

    If you think there are no athletes who’re drug users in this country with testing you’re lying to yourself.

    Bottom line is you don’t know who isn’t or is doing what unless they get caught red handed.
    So step down from your high moral ground.

  • xtreme_machine says:

    hey metalmulisha,

    I agree that some US guys do juice ex. Shark, Irvin, Leben, Karo

    that is why i think that GSP does it too, he just hasn’t gotten caught YET!

    We need a MMA league where steriod injections are mandator.

  • twyg says:

    For me as an american MMa fan it has nothing to do with morality, it has to do with the compition and the fighters. I do not want to see a guy get hurt by some juiced up freak. Do I think there are guys that fight here that use? Yes, but at least we try to keep things fair with testing. Does the testing catch everyone no and it probably never will. This is a compition probably the purest form of compitiion, and for a guy to get beat and not get recognized because he loses to some juiced up asshole sucks. By staying in Japan where they don’t test even while holding a title for an american promotion just tells me you are not good enough and you know it. For some reason this guy believes he needs this to win, and he probably does. If Coker had any balls he would have stripped the title by now. With out testing what they really have in Japan is IMO a farce and should not be taken seriously. I feel this way about all athletes they hurt the image of themselves and the sport.

    GSP use steroids? How did you come to that conclusion? Because he fights more than once a year, and it can take up to 6 or MORE months to get out of your system? because he has to test before AND after each fight, in the US & CANADA ? OR because he is actually a GREAT FIGHTER, and, as Joe Rogan has said. “HE ALSO TRIES TO EXCEL AS A GREAT HUMAN BEING, AS WELL AS A CHAMPION”, so “he must be on steriods! He just hasnt got caught yet!” Well you just got caught..bein’ a hater…OOOOOOHHHH, dont be mad cuz your girl likes him, and he REALLY is a nice guy, and he’s a Frence-speaking Canadian. And your girl likes him. LOL. ANYONE WHO USES STEROIDS IN THE UFC, WILL BE CAUGHT!
