Before I set the records straight let me just give you the quick rundown for those of you who don't follow these type of threads. Basically what people like to do is, they take everyday pictures of pro fighters and come into wild conclusions, with a worrying disregard on various factors such us the timing regarding the training camp, liquiditation levels, time of the day etc., not to mention small factors such as saturation and lighting conditions of those very photos. Guys, let's hold on to our horses just a little bit more here, okay?

Now that being said guys, let me assure you that Overeem isn't shrinking and there's absolutely no chance whatsoever, guys, of Overeem dropping down to 205. Period. Overeem's weight program is on track and come fight night, guys, he's gonna be just fine. Strong, healthy, and ready to go. I hope that has cleared the confusion. Peace.

Sounds like 'bro science' to me...

Not at all, my man. Just a passionate fan and a deep thinker when it comes to all things MMA, my man. More specifically I like to drill down on the hot button topics and mental side of things of big time MMA, but occasionally I comment on other topics such as this one in order to clear the records so to speak.

Haha a good one! Let me just make sure that people understand that I have nothing to do with horse meat of any kind other than the fact that I like the taste of the actual meat. My wealth comes purely due to the fact that I pulled myself up by the bootstraps, put in those hard hours and made my life work on mutiple levels.
