NSAC Hits Carwin & Nelson With Out Of Competition Drug Test | UFC NEWS

October 19, 2012 10:41 am by bjpenn.com staff 13 Comments

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has requested out-of-competition drug screenings from “The Ultimate Fighter” season 16 coaches, Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson.

The last occurrence of such testing was when Alistair Overeem was scheduled to fight Junior dos Santos on an all heavyweight UFC pay-per-view. In the aftermath it was found that the UFC’s number one heavyweight contender had banned substances in his system and was forced out of the main event.

Overeem is still serving a suspension for the infraction discovered during the out-of-competition test but will be eligible for licensure this December.

Will Nelson or Carwin suffer the same fate as “The Reem.”

Since put on notice the fighters have just a few days to submit their sample to an approved testing facility. The NSAC will more than likely oversee that of Nelson’s being that he is a Las Vegas resident.

Carwin, who resides in Colorado, was given a list of approved testing facilities and must submit to one of the NSAC recommendations.
