In the midst of all the post-UFC 140 coverage, several members from the MMA media world are reporting that Alistair Overeem may have to remove himself from the UFC 141 main event against Brock Lesnar.
Josh Gross of ESPN even went as far as to state that Overeem is on this Monday’s agenda in the Nevada State Athletic Commission meeting and is stating that a pre-fight drug screening may be the culprit of the hearing.
During the UFC 140 post-fight press conference Dana White denied the claims emphatically.
It should also be noted that there is no reason to believe Alistair has failed a drug screening or is afraid to submit to screening as he has never violated a banned substance rule during his lengthy and decorated career.
We will keep you posted on this rumor, but for now, don’t mistake it, it is just a rumor.
