Yesterday we learned that UFC heavyweight fighter, Alistair Overeem had failed his random drug screening due to elevated levels of testosterone and today the Nevada State Athletic Commission received conclusive proof that his T/E ratio was in fact 14-to-1.
The average ratio for a male is a 1-to-1 ratio however the NSAC, for precautionary reasons, have their limit set at a six-to-1 ratio for fear of penalizing an athlete who may natural produce higher testosterone than the average man.
Kizer indicated that with such a high level that there is likely some foul play going on with Overeem’s “Dietary Supplements.”
Alistair Overeem was set to fight UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos for the UFC’s heavyweight title at UFC 146. However according to reports he has yet to apply for a license to fight and he has yet to respond to the failed drug screening.
At this point Overeem has just two basic options.
Option 1 is to fight the results and request that a second sample be tested, dispute any findings and try to get a license to fight his scheduled opponent.
Option 2 is to keep silent, as he has done for the past two days, and do nothing.
Which one will he choose? Only time will tell.
