Chael Sonnen Weighs in On Alistair Overeem's Failed Drug Test

Publish date:

As you can expect, UFC middleweight contender Chael Sonnen has some interesting words for the ongoing Alistair Overeem situation. Sonnen offered up his take on Overeem, who has been the target of several accusations since moving from light heavyweight to heavyweight.

"I'm shocked," Sonnen wrote on his Twitter account. "Has the body fat of a tooth brush, looks like the guy on STREET FIGHTER. My mind is blown, just blown."

Overeem tested for an extra-large amount of testosterone during a pre-fight drug test conducted by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. With that, it is likely that he will not receive his fight license to meet Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title in May.

Overeem could still provide another sample, have it be cleared, and work to get his license from NSAC, but it remains unknown if he will take that route. So far, Overeem and his camp have remained silent on the issue.

Sonnen, meanwhile, is scheduled to face Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight title. Sonnen, when asked on his account about trying to win over the Brazilian people, replied, "They act like savages chanting 'You will die.' No interest in winning them over. Act like savages if you want. Touch me, and I will stomp you."

Sonnen-Silva II is set for later this year from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
