Alistair Overeem Tests Positive, Fight With Dos Santos In Jeopardy

It wasn’t all horse meat. The Nevada State Athletic Commission Director Keith Kizer issued this statement today in regards to the UFC 146 pre-fight press conference surprise drug test results,

“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,”

Overeem will can now request that his “B” sample be tested, which, if negative, would make him eligible to receive a fight license. If that test also shows elevated levels, his chances of being issued a fight license in Nevada or any other state will greatly diminish.

UFC President Dana White reacts to the news,

“I am beyond pissed about this. I’m so (expletive) mad right now I can’t even begin … How (expletive) stupid do you have to be? Seriously dumb. Anybody who’s using (performance-enhancing drugs) right now is an absolute (expletive) moron. It’s beyond – what’s the word I’m looking for – it’s beyond belief. It’s beyond comprehension. You’re an absolute moron, a brain-dead absolute (expletive) dummy. It goes beyond a guy have any common sense whatsoever.”

    Tell me if I'm wrong but I don't think Dana White has ever really been this pissed. When half of his words are censored he means business. I think the Reem can take his talents back to Dream.

    Not surprised. He comes from a camp that is notorious for steroids and he ballooned up in the past few years. But I agree with Dana. You dumb ass, you almost got caught with the Brock fight, had to lie and leave the country. What the hell are you thinking.

    Overeem is talented and I was looking forward to seeing him strike with JDS. F'n disappointed here.

    The hell with that if this guy test positive on his B sample does that mean Brock won the fight? I hope like hell he test positive on his B sample and is suspended indefinitely from the UFC. What a joke Dana is pissed lol yeah because he will lose a lots of money on this fight which is all the UFC dicator cares about.

    It's time for us all to admit that we want fighters on steroids. We want the biggest, baddest, meanest athletes around to climb into the cage. Folks, this is testosterone. Your body produces it naturally- these guys are just giving their own a boost. What's the big deal? Yeah, it makes you stronger. Yeah, it makes you more agressive. Yeah, it makes you a better fighter. So great! It's only cheating because it is against the rules. Let's change the rules! Some guys have naturally very high testosterone. Should we ban them from the sport? No? Well why not? Their natural levels are making them better fighters. A lot of people are so anti-steroid because the media feeds them bullshit over and over and over and they are too brain-dead to read and understand for themselves. All of the top level pro ball players are doing it so why should UFC be any different? And pull your head out of the fucking sand. Remember 30 years ago when an NFL lineman weighed 260 pounds? And now they are 320. They just eat more protein, right? LOL. It's everywhere already- why not UFC? (I buy my juice and pct meds online from flaxceed at tormail dot net- cat has xanax and valium too!)

      They can't change the rules, some of these dumb ass fighters will end up taking too much and killing themselves. They will do anything to win even if it harms their own body.

    Most men have a ratio of T to E of 1:1, which means normal men have equal amounts of T and E in their blood. There is some normal ethnic and time of day variation in the normal T/E ratio (as low as 0.7:1 and as high as 1.3:1).

    Statistics reveal that a ratio of up to 3.7:1 will capture 95 percent of all normal men, and a ratio of up to 5:1 will capture greater than 99 percent of all men. That's why the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) allows up to 4:1 (so its test is at least 95 percent accurate) and the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the NCAA and some others allow up to 6:1 (for 99 percent accuracy). The whole goal is to not label someone a cheater when he or she isn't. (Very, very rarely, some people are just freakishly high, but they have a ratio of less than 6:1).

    Overeem, of course, had an eye-poppin' 14:1 ratio.
