Overeem Moving Forward As Planned | Applies For License To Fight Dos Santos


At this point in time we all know what is going on with the UFC 146 main event.

Alistair Overeem failed a random drug screening for elevated levels of testosterone and as a result has put his shot at the UFC heavyweight title at risk.

While the Overeem camp has still remained silent on the situation at hand, they have responded with an application to fight Junior dos Santos at UFC 146.

Overeem is currently unlicensed in the State of Nevada. He last took to action against Brock Lesnar in Las Vegas but did so under a conditional license and this most recent bout of testing’s has put his ability to get licensure at risk.

For his part Overeem has not requested the B sample be tested to clear his name, at this point in time it is unclear how the Overeem camp will handle the testing result and the licensing process, but surely they have something up their sleeve or else why apply?

Overeem must answer to the testosterone charges later this month in front of the Nevada State Athletic commission, but his application for a license means he is planning on fighting the results and going to make an attempt to compete in the UFC 146 main event.

Whether or not he can pull it off is yet to be seen.

Stay tuned…
