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.

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.

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.
