Alistair Overeem's Doctor Has Questionable Past & Ethics


UFC Heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem went before the Nevada State Athletic Commission yesterday and testified that he had received an anti-inflammatory injection that contained testosterone.

Present at the hearing was Dr. Hector Oscar Molina Overeem’s physician along with his attorney Davis Chesnoff.

Overeem testified that he had saw Molina due to a recommendation by retired MMA fighter Tre Telligman. He had previously encountered Molina when he oversaw Overeem’s drug testing for the Fabricio Werdum fight at Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum in June 2011.

Dr. Molina said he injected Overeem with Vitamin B-12, Dexamethasone, Toradol, and an aqueous form of testosterone. Dexamethasone is an anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant steroid drug. Toradol is an anti-inflammatory however the purpose of aqueous testosterone in the injection was not specified by Molina.

Molina had injected Overeem with the mix in January and claimed he did not make Overeem aware that it contained testosterone. He also gave Overeem some of the mix and instructed him how to self inject following a call on March 22nd he advised the fighter to take another injection.

When the name Dr. Hector Oscar Molina came out at the hearing many people were keen to learn more about one of the men at the centre of the case. A simple internet search on the name brought some interesting facts to light.

A Dr. Molina also has a sideline business The Men’s Performance Enhancement Clinic.The clinic promotes Molina’s work with MMA fighters & Boxers as well as “50 collective years treating erectile dysfunction, low testosterone, and premature ejaculation caused by hormone imbalance, lack of libido, andropause (male menopause or manopause), prostate removal side effects, diabetes or psychological issues.”

In a Fort Worth Star-Telegram article from 2004 reports about a Dr. Hector Oscar Molina of Colleyville (However it is unconfirmed if it is the same man)

Texas State Board of Medical Examiners has fined Dr. Hector Oscar Molina of Colleyville $25,000 and placed restrictions on his practice for three years for prescribing controlled substances and dangerous drugs over the Internet without establishing “a proper physician-patient relationship.”

Molina, who has a general practice in Irving, will be prohibited from prescribing Schedule II and III controlled substances, among them medications such as morphine, codeine, methadone, oxydone (Percodan), hydrocodone (Vicodin) and anabolic steroids. Controlled substances are drugs with a high potential for abuse and which may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence.

Molina must also establish a proper physician-patient relationship with all patients in his practice, which requires him to “personally and physically see, examine, diagnose and treat every patient in person.”

The action was initiated when a complaint was filed with the medical board by a Colorado man who received drugs prescribed by Molina from the unregulated Internet pharmacy, www.prescriptionconsultation.com. It is no longer operating under that name.

FOX News report on a Dr. Hector Oscar Molina “Plastic Surgery Nightmare for a Texas Woman” (However it is again unconfirmed if it is the same man)

Dr. Hector Oscar Molina is an Irving doctor. His website claims he does everything from tummy tucks to facial surgery. But for the second time this year a patient has ended up at Baylor Hospital with devastating complications.

” I was so scared for my daughter,” said the patient’s mother. “When he took off all of the bandages, we saw the wounds and they were so open and infected.”

The mother says her daughter, who does not want to be named, was rushed to Baylor’s emergency room after getting an arm lift and breast implants at Molina Medical in Irving.

She says her daughter, who weighs more than 300 pounds, wanted her arms slimmer.

She complained to the Texas Board of Medical Examiners that Dr. Hector Oscar Molina performed a “17 hour” operation. She says the family called 911 nine days after the surgery because the wounds were severely infected and she couldn’t breathe.

    Like the start of a CSI episode ! Dodgy doc with criminal history !

      I think the real story here is this:

      “The mother says her daughter, who does not want to be named, was rushed to Baylor’s emergency room after getting an arm lift and breast implants at Molina Medical in Irving.

      She says her daughter, who weighs more than 300 pounds, wanted her arms slimmer, so she gets surgery.

      A 300 pound woman wanted her arms slimmer. At what obscene angle would you have to look at this balloon in order that a mere arm lift would make a visual difference?

      Apparently she also wanted breast implants, because obviously at 300 pounds that was the source of her self-consciousness. This is absurd; even a 300 pound MAN does not need breast implants.

      The reference to this women just lowered my expectations for the continued survival of the human race.

      • Daniel S says:

        She may have been bigger and was losing weight and so her breasts were sagging alot and needed to be back where they belong….as for the arm lift again if she was losing weight would have a lot of loose skin flapping around.

        • Xaninho says:

          She went in weighing 300 pounds…How much bigger was she to have lose skin while weighing 300 pounds? Shouldn’t she have waited until she reached her goal? Or maybe 300 pounds was her goal?

  2. Xaninho says:

    @ Jamie McAllister,

    In the article you mention “(However it is unconfirmed if it is the same man)”, why is the headline”Alistair Overeem’s Doctor Has Questionable Past & Ethics” implying it is the same man?

    Again a very tendentious article…smh

    • Liam says:

      Dude are you crazy :S the reason for that is because the chances are 99.9% it basically is him but due to laws and courts etc and getting sued and shit you can’t say that ….. Look at the locations all local to the dr and exact same name !

      • Marek says:

        Totally agree ! In today’s society you can get sued for looking at someone wrong ! Good read I also saw one of the judges comments on twitter saying Overeem needs to surround himself and associate with better people haha

      • Xaninho says:

        Name is the same, but still not confirmed it’s the same guy.

        Headline should have the common word allegedly in it. Many people only read headlines, what if it’s not the same guy? There’s gotta be more than one dr. Molina alive.

        And how can he still practise with a license after all those fuck-ups? There is a fair chance it isn’t the same man.

      • Boring says:

        You idiot, you only get sued if the facts are wrong.So the author should get the facts confirmed before writing an article!!!Instead of writing an article on hear say!!!

  3. danielrchargers says:

    yeah man fuck that doctor. Overeem do some research next time! mabey this wont happen.

    • Brad says:

      Or just not take steroids!

    • Shawn says:

      He should have looked into this doctor more. But when your in a foreign country trying to get accustomed, you end up relying on people you know. Telligman recommended the doctor. Guess he trusted Tre that much.

  4. Crusher says:

    Yeah sounds like a lot of Bullshit, Overeem is a fine tuned athlete so he is going to go see just any doctor? Let alone one he doesn’t know. Bullshit Overeem if you looked like Ken Flo you might get away with that excuse you have done PED’s, you just happened to get caught.

  5. Leo says:

    I mean Dr. Molina runs a Male Performance Enhancement Clinic…what did you expect????

    http:/ /www. mp-ec. com/

  6. Jon Jones says:

    I will fight any steroid user

  7. nico says:

    Think I will unsub on of the next days, as the “articles” on this site are moving more and more towards tabloid level…..no need to waste time on reading shitty unprofessional articles.

  8. itchyfingaz2012 says:

    I is a fan of Overeem and have been since he appeared on the k1 scene a few years back, whatever happens I’ll still watch his fights. If he was taking Testosterone for medicinal purposes and the Doctor didn’t disclose that fact to Alastair then not only should he be struck off, but Alastair should sue the s*** out of him

  9. Silvas scared says:

    I’m sure Overeem had no clue what he was taking…

  10. James says:

    Someone is doing alot to make Overeem look innocent. It’ all BS.

  11. BengalTiger says:

    Overeem and his crooked doctor are both full of shit. Overeem has obviously been taking steroids for years now, and thus, this particular “injection” is irrelevant.

  12. Pikelet says:

    It’s like a match made in heaven!! An extremely crooked doctor with an extremely crooked athlete!!

  13. BJC says:

    The Docs a butcher.Check this out.Seems if you pay him anything he will do it lol http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/health/2011/12/20/plastic-surgery-nightmare-for-texas-teen/

  14. MD says:

    Xaninho & Nico

    I agree with your statements. My problem, which grows every 2 of 5 articles I read from MMA “journalists”, is that many of these people put out articles without doing any work.

    In the real world, you don’t post the word NEWS in an article written by a 21yo kid who doesn’t seem to know how to write or how to do proper investigative journalism.
    This continues to be the problem in MMA “journalism”, which will continue to aid in the opponents of MMA legalization and mainstreaming.

    This highlights a greater issue with the organizations hosting these articles and, in this case, the MMA superstars they are associated with. If BJ Penn wants to put out a product, he should have more due diligence in selecting his personnel AND confirming that the product being delivered is a quality product.

    This article means nothing because none of the research is substantiated. It may have taken an extra few hours of phone calls to confirm the individual in those original, cited articles was, in fact, the man who injected Overeem. However, Mr. McAllister chose to sidestep this action and give us something that means less than nothing since it actually wasted our time.
