am I the only one sketched out by the quick jump in size by overeem? Ever since the poor transition of certain pride fighters into the ufc, and just noticing a difference in physique or ring performance, i've had the suspicion that fighters fighting in these japanese promotions are taking advantage of the lax drug testing. If my suspicions about overeem are correct, then it would make for a very interesting transition.
Yeah, the roids are definitely a big deal. Many of the fighters in Pride were juicing and couldn't do the same in w/e venues they went on to. I know Shogun lost for a bunch of reasons, but I wouldn't be surprised if coming off the roids was a major one.
That being said, I think majority of the fighters are clean.
