Alistair Overeem Fails Drug Test, UFC 146 Title Shot in Jeporady

A UFC fighter failing a drug test?


Alistair Overeem has tested positive for heightened testosterone levels and could be out of his UFC heavyweight title fight at UFC 146. At a press conference for the event last week, Overeem, along with Junior dos Santos, Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez, Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva were all tested for performance enhancing drugs by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

According to an e-mail from NSAC executive director Keith Kizer, “All test results were negative, except Mr. Overeem tested positive for an increased T/E ratio (> 10). Mr. Overeem will need to appear before the Commission if he seeks licensure.”

Maybe he can get Ryan Braun’s lawyer.
