UFC NEWS – QuickTwitt: Rumors Flying That Overeem Is Out OF UFC 141 Main Event

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.

    I heard Overeem got raped.

  2. moab says:

    josh gross failed to mention that the agenda says alistair is applying for a license to fight, just like the other fighters on the agends

  3. steve says:

    this is stupid. alistair has the best of detox he would never fail a drug test silly.

    • dave says:

      what do u mean the best of detox???? just wondering,,,,i hate when people cry juicer like they do to gsp ( and i hate gsp) when i guy works hard and he good everyone is so fast to say hes juicing,,,but alister got way to big way to fast and at way to old,,,,,he was past his growing age then rippped up,,,i believe he cant be naturtal,,,maybe now but he got tere with help

      • MMFT says:

        why don’t you learn about bulking up, bra.

      • steve says:

        exactly he is not natural. you dont go from 180 to 260 that quick. i say he has the best of detox because he passes all his drug tests and probably will pass them all because he has very good detox to take it out of his system

        • Josh says:

          watch his documentaries, he never weight lifted to cut be able to fight at the lighter weight. and it drained him too much, so he bulked up. dont try to say he is juicing until its proven

      • Pfft says:

        Past his growing age LOL youve never ever worked out in your entire life.Dude you can gain well past your 30s dude.In fact people make the best gains in their 30s because of more maturity and not trying to throw up to much weight intstead using proper form and technique.FFs how many eyars has it been sicne he was a 205er and keep in mind he was cutting alot of weight then too.All this juice BS is from people who dont know shit about lifting.Eat and lift right and youll gain fast trust me.Do some research or better yet get off your ass and work out and youll see

        • DontBeScaredHomie says:

          LOL couldn’t have said it any better myself

        • MMFT says:

          exactly…if you know what and when to eat and have a good workout plan you can become a monster…. even if you’re passed you’re “growing age”. hahaha

        • mike hale says:

          i know this is old but you people are dumb as shit…they are called growth plates and they are done by your early 20’s and no im sorry but at 30 if you never worked out in your life you might bulk but otherwise dont expect to gain much that fast, test production has already started to slow down at this fact at 26 it begins in most males. not saying he is juicing or not just that you have no idea what your talking about

  4. Jotun says:

    MMA rumors are getting just as bad as Hollywood tabloids.

  5. Aaron says:

    Kevin iole is the dumbest mothafuka in the mma journalism biz. Total fucktard that talks out his ass and dont know shit about the fight game. How in gods name did he get his job at yahoo?! He MUST be related to someone at yahoo and they said give him mma its not going anywhere…and now theyre like..oh shit mma is the bomb and we got ioles retarded ass on it. Having said that… I hope reem can pass the test.

  6. BJ PENN says:

    he can BEAT LOSENAR !!

  7. Eric says:

    this guy keeps posting dumb rumors… they always end up not true. Fuck this guy! Ariel needs to choke the shit out of him cause he’s making MMA Media look bad..

  8. Chad says:

    Let Machida redeem himself by kicking Lesnar in the face please!

  9. GRT 3000 says:

    Faaaack. I hope that isn’t true. I don’t wanna see frickin’ Mir/Lesnar – already seen that twice. I want the Reem.

  10. Nightmare Inc. says:

    I’m pissed off just reading about this obvious lie. Try to pass of that your dick can actually touch your draws ya dumb cunt …You need to be sacked and hung for this. Hey lets all make up bullshit faggots.

  11. A.James says:

    Why hasn’t Overeem denied these rumors yet?

  12. dave says:

    i doubt overeem failed shit or is in trouble,,,but many guys are clean there entire career then when they hit the ufc they get busted,,i dont knwo if ufc test harder or the just start juicing for teh big show

  13. Bullshitski.. Dana will be the first to announce the news of such.

  14. BJC says:

    He can say he got some bad meat from a race horse on roids

  15. Xaninho says:

    That’s absolute bullshit. Part of his training is body-building, yeah he got big and he got big pretty fast. But that’s cause he does everything for it. Did you see the amounts of food he has to eat to maintain it?

    Unless he gets caught people should shut their mouths.

  16. A.James says:

    Innocent until proven guilty.

  17. Jerome says:

    Reem hasn’t denied it because he is with his SICK mother, everyone that is trying to get a license in Nevada must go up in front of the commission, think about this question when was the last time Reem fought in Nevada????? Exactly it was a long time ago and the last time I fought in Nevada I had to go in front of the commission to get my license. There could also be other reasons as well but the most likely is he just needs to submit the application and take a piss test. Other reasons could be because he failed something but before we talk about that lets just see what the real deal is instead of accusing a multi-organizational champion of juicing when he has never before been caught taking roids.

    • A.James says:

      Sick mom or not he needs to say something to quiet the rumors. A quick couple clicks on twitter from an iPhone and he’d be all set. Hell I’m writing this while I’m taking a douce!

  18. Adam says:

    Here is the link to the agenda for today’s NSAC meeting. Overeem is applying for his license along with several other fighters. It also states which fighters are being considered for suspension. Overeem is not on that list
