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.
