Fabricio Werdum says Alistair Overeem “is on a special juice all the time”


MMA veteran Fabricio Werdum has once again accused Alistair Overeem of using steroids, adding that the former Strikeforce Heavyweight champion has a “chicken heart” and would most likely get KO’d by Junior dos Santos.

Werdum is currently on a two-fight win streak in the UFC, with sights on the long-anticipated rematch with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in mid-2013. The pair will also coach at TUF: Brazil 2.

It’s not the first time the Brazilian has something spicy to say about Overeem. Fans still remember the Brazilian saying in almost every interview that Alistair Overeem is “his son”, which was never taken seriously by The Demolition Man. Many thought Fabricio Werdum’s comments were lost in translition, but now it seems that there’s a real animosity between Vai Cavalo and The Reem (interview via Caged Insider):

“For sure, the time in 2006, when I fought with him. For sure he was on the juice again. The special juice. All the time he’s on the special juice. I don’t know. In Japan it’s not like here in the U.S.A. There’s a lot of control, I like that, but in 2006 in Japan, in Pride there was control, but not 100 percent. They had tests but don’t find the drugs.”

“Yes, maybe Dos Santos knocks down [Overeem]. I think this because Dos Santos has good boxing, he’s a smart guy, very confident in his stand up. I know Alistair Overeem was a champ at K-1 with good stand-up too, but I don’t think Overeem does have a big heart. Dos Santos has a big heart, Overeem has a chicken heart.”

    Chicken heart? Funny coming from Werdum…

    Overeem wasn't the guy flopping all over the ring and lying on his back with his legs open, smiling and beckoning when the fought.

  • In an unedited version he also dropped the bombshell that apparently Stevie Wonder is blind.

    • By day mma cage fighter but by night he becomes…. Captain obvious!

  • no disrespect but dude i would suggest some english 101.I really have hard time watching this and you got a guym in L.A

    • Yeah, I hate it when people's English is imperfect. By the way, don't forget English is capitalized in English. umm, what's a "guym"?


  • Overeem Chicken? That Comes From A Guy That Was Laying On The Ground And Begging Overeem To Jump His Guard ? Whaha This Guy Is Delusional 🙂

  • I was a big overeem fan, but with his body, there always was a lot of speculation.
    After he got caught, i was and still think, he juiced his titles together!
    Let's see how good and bog he remains!
    (his excuse about didn't know there was testosterone in the shot, i didn't ask, the docto\r didn't tell, LOL ! BS!

  • Big (bog)

  • really want to see werdum get ktfo again.
    never could under stand why reem never throw at least one punch on werdum before standing up when they both went to the ground.

  • did werdum have any idea how gay as fuck it looked when he throw his legs in the air and started to beg and smile at reem?

  • Anyone know if Overroid will be able to keep his size and strength now that he'll be fighting in the US? How hard is it going to be to get past the Las Vegas Commission's tests? Also, is it possible he's using "Balco" type drugs that don't even show up on tests or is that the stuff of science fiction? It's not that he's the only one who has used help- the real question is whether he will be able to survive in the HW division if he can't keep that drug regimen he was on while in Japan. Time will tell.
