When you pretty much flush one of the biggest fights of the year down the toilet by failing a drug test, you_re likely to find yourself on bad terms with your boss and that was exactly the case for Alistair Overeem and UFC President Dana White. White, just a few short months ago would not even speak of Alistair Overeem but at the UFC 148 post fight press conference he confirmed that the two were back on speaking terms after a meeting earlier in the week.
"He went downstairs and waited for forty minutes until I called him upstairs, and then came into my office like a man. Nothing but respect for Alistair now," he said. "We all make mistakes and we all do stupid s--t. I say this all the time. It’s all in how you handle yourself after. He handled himself like a f---ing stud."
White didn_t explain exactly what went on during the meeting at UFC headquarters but appeared happy with Overeem, who is still under suspension from the NSAC until December.
