Alistair Overeem has grown accustomed to squashing things.
For the past five years, Overeem has stomped unabated though the heavyweight landscape of both mixed martial arts and professional kickboxing, amassing a combined record of 20-2-1, capturing the Strikeforce heavyweight title and winning the vaunted K-1 World Grand Prix tournament, all while appearing to spin the combat sports world on his finger like a massive basketball.
There have been so many lopsided victories and so many foes vanquished with such minimal effort, you can’t really blame the 6-foot-5, 270-pound giant if he’s come to believe himself invincible.
Perhaps it's that feeling of invincibility that leads Overeem to appear so nonchalant about his current public relations crisis, as if the surprise drug test that caught him with a testosterone level more than twice the legal limit in April will slip into the past as easily as, say, Mark Hunt, Todd Duffee or Brock Lesnar.
