Horse meat lover Alistair Overeem has halved in size since his PED suspension

A recent photograph of former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem has caused a stir among combat sports enthusiasts.

Over the course of his illustrious 25-year career, Overeem has established himself as one of the biggest, strongest, and most feared competitors in various global promotions.


For years, fans have marveled at Overeem’s imposing and hulking physique, which has been a defining characteristic of his presence in combat sports. Nonetheless, the recent photograph of Overeem standing alongside RIZIN CEO Nobuyuki Sakakibara depicts a different image of the renowned competitor.

Overeem’s new physique is in stark contrast to the horse loving Ubereem we’re used to.

In discussions about Alistair Overeem’s physique, it is impossible to ignore the controversies surrounding his use of PEDs. Over the years, Overeem has faced allegations of using PEDs.

Notably, Overeem’s career encountered a major setback in 2012. He was slated to compete for the UFC title against then-champion Junior dos Santos. But a month before the bout, it was discovered that Overeem’s testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio was a staggering 14-to-1, far exceeding the allowable 6-to-1 ratio. Consequently, the UFC was compelled to withdraw Overeem from the match.

At present, Alistair Overeem is serving a 12-month suspension for testing positive for PEDs following his unanimous decision victory over Badr Hari at GLORY: Collision 4 in October. This suspension is scheduled to conclude in the upcoming fall, and was imposed after Overeem had tested positive six weeks after the bout. As a result, his initial win was overturned to a no-contest.

While it remains uncertain whether Overeem’s recent physical transformation can be attributed to his history of PED use, fans are undeniably worried about the well-being of this iconic figure in combat sports.
