Never understood why so many people say Overeem has ducked JDS.
First fight got cancelled by a random drug test by the commission and if you try and tell me that every event would continue if every guy fighting got drug tested, I'll laugh in your face. Random pre-fight drug tests would take out a large amount of events.
Second fight Reem suffered a hamstring injury and didn't return for 4 months after he bowed out of the JDS fight. Showed up noticeably less in shape and with a far more terrible gas tank than before as well, exactly like he'd been recovering from a leg injury and couldn't train cardio.
Here he's on vacation and said he needs to heal up and come back home in 3 weeks before decidng anything.
I mean he very well could be trying to get out of the fight all the time, but why would he bail a drug test that was essential to his participation in the 1st matchup if he was going to fail anyways and the results wouldn't matter, and then proceed to get knocked out in his next 2 matchups that would have led to a meeting with JDS? Any fighter would rather get knocked out once instead of 3 times, so I have no idea why people think he just suffered the Bigfoot and Browne KO's to avoid getting knocked out a 3rd time by JDS. Logic dictates you'd take the 1 KO by JDS over 3 KO's by Bigfoot, Browne, and JDS.
Rhaegar fought valiantly, Rhaegar fought nobly, Rhaegar fought bravely. And Rhaegar died.
By what right does the wolf judge the lion?
