03:02 PM ET 03.11 | Luiz Dorea, a coach for former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos, is befuddled again by Alistair Overeem's withdrawal. "What else can happen in July, August? Will there be another story, another problem with the lab, or an injury? There are great names in the division without a fight scheduled, .... but Overeem is also a great duel. Except that Overeem teases Cigano, and every time we get close to the fight, we do not know what happens. It's a difficult situation. But I'm quiet, and the UFC is watching," Dorea said.

I don't think the guy can compete as a heavyweight without "help" so he's probably scared his going to get mascaraed if he faces JDS clean.
