Former Strikeforce champ Alistair Overeem is ready to put the frustration of a failed drug screen behind him, and after a fruitful meeting with Dana White, it appears UFC brass is comfortable doing the same.

And while an NSAC ruling means Overeem can't compete in the octagon until late December at the absolute earliest, that isn't the stopping the "Demolition Man" from making plans – and challenges.

"Junior Dos Santos is the champion for a reason," Overeem said. "But I'm going to get my hands on him, and when I do, he's all mine."

I think Overeem takes this so long as it happens before he is a decade past his retirement years.....I hate for a fight to get pushed back too long....that crap robbed us of an even better Wand vs Chuck....learn from that and produce the damn fight!

Yes, because JDS was the one who was not able to fight that night.

Overeem is full of it. JDS was gonna fight him @146. Thinks to the guy that JDS is supposedly afraid to fight they had to totally change every Main Card fight. And if I remember currectly it wasn't JDs's fault.

Can't wait for this fight and for Reem to get his head cracked.

JDS isn't afraid, he just wants to make sure you're not going to be a big fat cheater when you actually do fight...

JDS all day long in that fight. Haven't for a second thought Overeem was going to take this fight. I just can't see it.

punches, knees, kicks, elbows, clinch work vs punches. That is how Overeem can, and imo will, win

You fail a drug test and he is afraid to face you
You cheat to get a advantage in a fight
Very funny

With Overeems recent troubles, you know the commission is going to have surprise piss-tests waiting for him if they make the fight again.

With that, Overeem won't be the same fighter. His cycle will be all fucked up and so he won't be at the condition he usually is. Tough variables going against Reem in a fight that already is a tough fight for him stylistically.

Be real with this PED nonsense Pookie, we all know that Overeem just ate an exceptionally virile horse prior to his surprise test.
