Alistair Overeem talks mindset against Junior dos Santos, avoids addressing drug test

UFC heavyweight #1 contender Alistair Overeem sat down for an interview this week on MMA Uncensored Live where “The Reem” discussed his fight strategy for his upcoming bout with Junior dos Santos. Unfortunately, the one topic he refused to address happens to be the area the public is most interested in hearing about.

Overeem and Dos Santos are set to collide for the divisional title in the main event of UFC 146 in May. However, Overeem failed a pre-fight drug test and will need to receive clearance to compete from the Nevada State Athletic Commission later this month.

“I am bigger, I am stronger, I am better in the stand up and I’m better on the ground,” said Overeem of the bout with Dos Santos. “Nothing scares me about Junior dos Santos. Everything he’s doing, I’ve seen it before. I’m not worried about it, I’ve experienced it all.”

While he may not have discussed his licensing status or testosterone use, based on demeanor Overeem seemed very confident he will be cleared of wrongdoing when he meets with the NSAC on April 24 and locked into the title-fight against JDS.
