Alistair Overeem Tests For Elevated Testosterone, Will Require NSAC Meeting Ahead of UFC 146

NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer sent out an email today regarding the surprise drug tests issued to UFC 146 Press Conference. Kizer stated that Alistair Overeem was the only one with an abnormal test result. Overeem tested with a 10:1 testosterone/epitestosterone¬†ratio, NSAC’s highest accepted ratio level is 6:1.

Overeem will be required to appear in front of NSAC in order to be licensed ahead of his May 26 matchup. While Overeem could possibly be licensed, it is likely that his championship fight with UFC heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos is in jeopardy.

The only silver lining for the UFC is that UFC 146 is all heavyweights, so finding a replacement should not be difficult.

NSAC stated that Alistair Overeem, Junior dos Santos, Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez, Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva were all tested after the conference. With only Overeem, testing high.

The failed test could also cause Overeem’s UFC 141 win over Brock Lesnar to be overturned to a “no contest” due to the conditions set forth in his December hearing for a temporary license prior to UFC 141.
