    Originally posted by Sherdog.com

    Alistair Overeem has tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone and must now appear before the Nevada Athletic Commission before he can be licensed to fight at UFC 146.

    NAC Executive Director Keith Kizer emailed Sherdog.com the test results on Wednesday. The No. 1 contender for the UFC heavyweight title, Overeem is slated to take on champion Junior dos Santos on May 26 in Las Vegas. However, that booking now appears to be in jeopardy.

    According to Kizer, Overeem’s testosterone to epitestosterone (T/E) ratio was greater than 10-to-1, exceeding the allowable 6-to-1 limit. Along with five other competitors, “The Demolition Man” was tested following a UFC 146 press conference in Las Vegas on March 27. Frank Mir, Roy Nelson, Antonio Silva, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos all produced negative tests.

    The surprise test marked the first of two randomly administered screens Overeem had been ordered to submit prior to his May 26 outing as per the terms of the conditional license he was granted to compete at UFC 141.

    Overeem had been asked to submit a pre-fight urine sample prior to his Dec. 30 clash with Brock Lesnar, but he was unable to immediately comply due to his travel between the United States and the Netherlands. Days later, Overeem submitted a sample to an approved facility in the United Kingdom and was cleared to fight on the condition that he undergo additional testing after the bout. The Dutchman dominated Lesnar in the UFC 141 main event later that month, earning a first-round technical knockout to claim his stake as the No. 1 contender for dos Santos’ belt.



I'm amazed it took this long for something on him to pop up.

The big loser in all this is Brock Lesnar. Okay, not really, but if Brock had not been injured, then presumably you would have given him the next shot against Dos Santos. Yes, Cain would have deserved it more, but by the way that UFC made the Lesnar/Overeem fight a number one contender's match, then Lesnar would be the rightful (?) heir to the shot.

The big winner could be Frank Mir, who might get to jump past everyone and get the shot (especially as he has already stated publicly that he wants the shot).

I love Dana's reaction:

Upon receiving news of Overeem's test results, UFC president Dana White said, "I am beyond pissed about this. I'm so angry right now I can't even begin ..."

"It's beyond -- what's the word I'm looking for -- it's beyond belief," White said, as quoted by thestarphoenix.com."It's beyond comprehension. You're an absolute moron, a brain-dead absolute (expletive) dummy. It goes beyond a guy having any common sense whatsoever."

Considering Diaz, is there something about the Strikeforce wing of UFC that allowed this?

It has that feel, but Overeem only fought in Strikeforce a single time after UFC bought it (in Texas, a state that does not drug test.) Overeem spent most of his career in Japan, which does not drug test.

Jeez, maybe they should start a promotion of steroid users who only take fights in places that don't drug test then.

Brock would have been destroyed by JDS. JDS is a quicker striker than Overeem. In all this, I pity Frank Mir. Mir, who has said he wants to take Overeem's place.

They did, they called it PRIDE.

Now Mir is probably going down in his place, but who will Cain get to dummy up?
