Dana White is not happy with Alistair Overeem and that's putting it mildly. The Saskatoon Star-Phoenix was on a conference call for Canadian media with the UFC president only minutes after he heard the news that his #1 contender had failed a drug test. White didn't pull any punches.
"I am beyond pissed about this. I'm so (expletive) mad right now I can't even begin ...
"The worst part is that he sat in front of us and lied to us (referring to a meeting in the UFC's offices meeting with White and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, where Overeem insisted he was clean and would pass all drug tests). How (expletive) stupid do you have to be? Seriously dumb. Anybody who's using (performance-enhancing drugs) right now is an absolute (expletive) moron..
"It's beyond - what's the word I'm looking for - it's beyond belief. It's beyond comprehension. You're an absolute moron, a brain-dead absolute (expletive) dummy. It goes beyond a guy have any common sense whatsoever."
White told the journalists on the call that it was too soon to announce any changes to the card.
"I don't have a plan B" he said.
When asked about Overeem's future with the organization he said, "It doesn't look good, does it? IIt doesn't look good."
