Alister Overeem test positive at UFC 146 Press Conference

Alistair Overeem has tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone according to testing done by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
According to Kizer, Overeem tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone with a 10 to 1 ratio for his T/E levels, which is the level of testosterone vs. epitestosterone. A normal, healthy adult male typically has a T/E ratio of about 1 to 1.

The pre-fight test was done in part because of Nevada’s out of competition testing system, so following the UFC 146 pre-fight press conference all six athletes there were tested.

The other five athletes – Junior Dos Santos, Roy Nelson, Antonio Silva, Cain Velasqeuz and Frank Mir – all had negative test results.

Now for Overeem to gain licensure in the state of Nevada he will need to request a hearing and appear before the commission before he can be cleared for his upcoming fight at UFC 146 against UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos.

Overeem can request that a “B” sample taken on the same day be tested. If it comes back negative, he can still apply for a license in the state. Otherwise, Overeem could be pulled from the UFC 146 main event altogether after this positive test.

Overeem is not currently licensed in Nevada, so technically, he cannot be punished for testing positive in regards to a suspension or penalty from the commission, but without a license he can’t fight there. If that’s not taken care of prior to the May 26 date for UFC 146, he will be pulled from the bout with dos Santos.

The UFC has yet to make a statement regarding the positive test from Overeem.
