UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos spoke to ESPN Brazil this week about Alistair Overeem and got his thoughts on where Overeem is at in the division and what he would have to do to earn a title shot against the current Champ once he returns from suspension for testing positive for high testosterone levels.
The Champ pulled no punches in talking about Overeem_s failed test. Check it out below and read more HERE
"I would like him to do a test -- a blood test," dos Santos said of the 32-year-old Dutchman. "I think we both need to do that. I want a clean fight and he needs to prove he is not under any kind of substances."
"Using drugs is completely unnecessary, and I am the living proof," he said. "Iâ€™m the champion, and I never used any kind of forbidden substances. Fighting a guy that uses these kinds of drugs is completely unfair and useless. With or without any kind of authorization [for using testosterone], the fighter who uses those substances is never fighting with his own skills. He is enhancing his power with those drugs."
When you have a fight with two _clean_ fighters, you will know after the fight who is the real champion," he said. "A guy who uses doping is a fake fighter."
"I think he doesnâ€™t deserve a title shot right now. ... Overeem needs to have another fight before having a title shot."
