Alistair Overeem back when he was a shrimp


Look how tiny he is here in this video from 2000. I’m sure you’ve all seen that informative timeline pointing out how gigantic he’s grown over the past 10 years. Now I have another picture after the jump that is going to blow your socks off and really make you ask “How could he grow so much over time???”

  • Joon4s

    Same creepy stare though.

  • Reem.Hadouken

    Since his brother looks the same.. maybe it’s just damn good genetics.

    In a few years when bones is bigger and moving up to HW I doubt anybody will blink and eye.

  • glassjawsh

    ^ this

    and by “shrimp” and “tiny” i assume you mean “still bigger than i’ll ever be in my entire life unless i get morbidly obese”

  • Blackula Jonez

    Some kids grow up to be huge, it happens ryan.

    Reem was always tall but has filled out in musculature over time, which one should expect out of a professional fighter. Pacquiao started his career as a 105 pounder ffs.

  • frickshun

    ^^True. Then he went on STEROIDS.

    Just kidding. Maybe.

  • CAP

    And nobody said shit when Mir packed on about 30 pounds of muscle in a month after the Lesnar beating.

  • chim55

    quack quack.

    He is a drug cheat, and will be proven as such.

    Why only 1 recent fight in US?


  • glassjawsh

    ^ omg! shinya aoki has only fought in the US once! he must be juicing!!!!

    omg!!!! dumb!!

  • Reverend Clint

    no shinya is just scared not a juicer… if he is a juicer he must be getting the cheap mexican off brand version Barnetto gets. low grade beaver roids vs horse roids

  • chim55

    lol, Over-roid is most definitely juicing…

    but you know what?

    My favourite fighter is Shane Carwin, I have zero problem with the fact that he likely juices, and also that an incredibly high proportion of fighters juice.

    But its only the Over-roid fanboys that get so touchy about it.

    Overeem is by far the most obvious and clear case of juicing outside WWE.

    quack quack

  • Reverend Clint

    yeah overeem fans are the only ones who get all butt hurt about it. He might be a genetic mutant but if everyone takes roids then isnt overeem included in everyone? only overeem cock smokers try to lessen the fact that he is a roid head by bringing up the fact that all mma fighter do roids.

  • Slappy san

    He looks pretty young there. There’s the aging. There’s the cutting. There’s the no weight lifting. Oh…and drugs….I mean horse meat.

  • Slappy san

    Has anyone noticed he cut back after looking like Bob Sapp just before he went on his roll in K-1? Too lazy to look but I think the cut down came just before he had his last MMA sanctioned fight.

    Could be wrong. Memory is crappy that way.

  • Reverend Clint

    would be interesting to look at how he looks when he fights for strikeforce vs K-1 or in japan.

  • glassjawsh

    I prefer the “he’s never pissed hot” argument to the “everyone is doing it” argument. less fallacies of logic

    if he ever pisses hot, ill retract my fanboy status

  • Reverend Clint

    i guess it aint cheating until you get caught… ill go on killing hookers then

  • iamphoenix

    what ryan fails to mention is that picture was taken in 1999.
