Dana White Isn’t an ‘Alistair Overeem Fan at All’, Doesn’t Want To Do Business With Liars

Alistair Overeem may have escaped yesterday’s hearing with the NSAC with a reduced suspension, but he’s not done convincing the powers that be that he deserves another chance in the UFC Octagon. Dana White is still pissed off at Overeem, clearly evident by the conversation he had with Jim Rome this morning (audio above). The commission may have somewhat bought his anti-inflammatory story, but Dana isn’t. He still believed Overeem lied straight to his face when he told him he was clean and wouldn’t have any problems with drug tests. And needless to say, Dana doesn’t like being lied to. He also concluded another conversation with different media members today by saying, “I am not an Alistair Overeem fan at all.”

So what does this mean for Alistair Overeem and his future in the UFC? As Dana put it, “I don’t know… we’ll see what happens.”
