According to the NSAC, Alistair Overeem has been cycling something a bit stronger than horse meat. The UFC number 1 heavyweight contender has just tested positive for an increased T/E ratio, which means that his testosterone levels were higher than what the body normally produces. This pretty much scuttles the planed Junior Dos Santos vs. Overeem fight that was scheduled for next month. Before Overeem can fight, he needs to go before the commission in Nevada.
The official notice for the failed test came from NSAC's Keith Kizer:
"The following athletes were tested on March 27: Alistair Overeem, Junior dos Santos, Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez, Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva. 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"
Dana White, on a conference call said that he is "beyond pissed" about the results.
This is yet another blow for the UFC, and another black eye for the sport of mixed martial arts. I'll have more on the failed test and what it means for the UFC in the near future.
