Alistair Overeem fails pre UFC 146 test, fight with JDS in jeopardy

At last week’s pre-fight press conference for UFC 146, six of the event’s participants were selected for random drug screens. Today the NSAC revealed that all but the number one UFC heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem had passed their pre-fight test. Overeem’s T/E ratio (Testosterone to Epitestosterone) was 10-to-1, which is far over the 6-to-1 limit the NSAC allows for maintaining/obtaining a license, and it now appears as though he will not be competing for the UFC heavyweight title on May 26th at UFC 146.

With the main event in jeopardy it now leaves fans with the question as to what will become of the scheduled bout. Will the bout be scrapped, so a suitable replacement can still challenge current champion Junior Dos Santos for the title? Or will there be a lengthy appeal process between now and late May, to see if Overeem can somehow rectify the situation?

Either way you slice it, UFC president Dana White is beyond furious when asked about the situation, and White was quoted as saying. “Alistair was here in my fucking office, I don’t know how long ago—and he looked me and Lorenzo Fertitta in the eyes and said: Absolutely, I’m clean. I’ll pass that test.

He went on to say:

How Fucking stupid do you have to be? Seriously dumb. Anybody who’s using (performance-enhancing drugs) right now is an absolute Fucking moron.

It’s even 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 fucking dummy. It goes beyond a guy having any common sense whatsoever.

As of now, there has been no confirmation on a replacement for Overeem, or whether the event will proceed as planned, but as further news develops we’ll keep you posted.

What do you think should happen??
