Alistair Overeem, Harvey Updyke, Dave Barnett & Brien Taylor News: 6/20, Vol. 168, 3rd Edition

So when your tests and trials, they seem to get you down…and all your friends and loved ones are nowhere to be found.  Just remember there's a friend in Jesus, who will wipe your tears away!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

Harvey Updyke on trial
for tree poisining
Alistair Overeem, who is currently ranked the #3 heavyweight in the world in Mixed Martial Arts, may not fight on UFC’s annual year-end card scheduled for December 29.  Alistair, who is currently serving a nine-month suspension for his admission of injecting a substance that he was unaware contained testosterone, must re-apply with the Nevada State Athletic Commission when he is eligible on December 27 and be granted his license prior to UFC promoting him.  According to UFC co-owner, Lorenzo Fertitta, they are reluctant in promoting an Overeem fight since there are not guarantees he will be granted his license.
