Overeem Fails Last Week’s Random Drug Test | UFC 146 Main Event In Jeopardy


Last week the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) exercised their right to request urine samples from the six-UFC heavyweights that participated in the UFC 146 pre-fight press conference on Tuesday.

Among the men tested was main event fighter Alistair Overeem.

He failed.

According to the NSAC Executive Director, Keith Kizer, out of the six men tested only Alistair Overeem failed. He tested positive for an increased testosterone/epitestosterone or T/E ratio of more than 10-to-1 and the allowable limit is 6-to-1.

Overeem must now answer these charges in front of the commission if he wishes to compete on the UFC 146 fight card against Junior dos Santos for the UFC’s heavyweight title. However, even an appearance and valid explanation may not result in a license to fight.

The other fighters tested were Frank Mir, Junior dos Santos, Cain Velasquez, Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva.

Stay tuned as this story develops.

  1. Xaninho says:

    What a motherfucker! So very disappointed…

    • Tom says:

      What, is anyone actually surprised?

      It’s unfortunate that he got caught, but I say let the fight go on. His T/E wasn’t THAT far over, and JDS is still completely capable of taking him out.

  2. ELH says:

    That sucks.

  3. your mom says:

    Told you so.

  4. Scotty says:

    MMAJunkie is going nits right now on this news! But people fail to realize he still can go with a B Sample and get licensed.. Also no really knows the reason but everyone can make the assumption PED’s! haha

  5. LCM says:

    What a surprise.

  6. best opinion on the nets says:

    FUCK YOU OVEREEM. YOU FUCKING **** SUCKER. Not a valid champ. GTFO of mma already you dickhead.

  7. omgaghost says:

    I’m predicting that Mir steps up.

  8. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Damn that sucks. Now the main event is fucked! Who is going to fight JDS?

    • Scotty says:

      It isnt fucked yet! He still can ask for the B sample to get tested.. If that passes then he go for a license.. As this article didnt cover the whole story!

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        I know… I’m just disappointed because this was the fight I was looking forward to the most this year. His chances aren’t great King Mo and Cyborg both got suspended even though they appeared before the commission to defend themselves.

        Chances are he is getting suspended and not cut since he is more valuable than King Mo.

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        Or he could get cut because Dana is extremely pissed.

        • Xaninho says:

          If DW does that he’s showing his endlessly hypocrisy again, cause his buttbuddy Sonnen had levels as high as 16:9…And he’s fighting for the belt again!

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          Well lets see if Overeem has his doctors note ready.

        • Xaninho says:

          If he did cheat I don’t even care if he gets cut. But UFC and DW should do that with all the cheaters. Be consistent, cut all caught cheaters and they can make MMA clean.

  9. bdizz says:

    interesting… now who does Junior fight? Fuck it I say give Mir a shot.

  10. Rob says:

    kind of seen this one coming. Oh well. Hopefully it’s JDS vs Mir next

    • Xaninho says:

      Same shit Sonnen pulled and DW and Sonnen are buttbuddies so wtf is he talking about? He’s such a hypocrite !

      Not saying I don’t mind Overeem using PED’s, cause thats absoluty fucked up in my opinion. He should be cut if the B test also shows it’s indeed PED’s. But Sonnen is still there and his levels were the same!

  11. ughh says:

    Makes all us that are your fans look like asses for always sticking up for you……so disappointed, let the comments begin, ppl have the right to criticize you now :-

  12. oli says:

    anyone surprised ????????? I’m not…

  13. bizzle says:

    Reem the dumb clown asss cheater..

  14. MyHappySkinnyPill.com says:

    Does this really surprise anyone?

  15. The Beast says:

    Lol it better not be Mir he will get finished in the first

  16. Twatty Mc.Twatface says:

    what a fucking douche, this is why they should do random drugs tests more often.

  17. koolG says:

    god damn you reem… way to fuck everyone over……

  18. LCM says:

    Why is he still allowed to fight? Why do we go straight to talking about appeals and “B” samples? His career should be over. That’s the only effective deterrent against fighters using PEDs. Getting a slap on the wrists, petty fine, and a 6-10 month suspension isn’t going to prevent a god damn thing. Everybody with a brain in their heads knows he has been juicing for awhile. He skipped his first drug test, submitted an invalid blood test conducted by his “PERSONAL DOCTOR”, submitted urine that wasn’t even tested and now he fails his first random test in extraordinary fashion, and we are STILL talking about appeals and “B” samples? What the fuck?

    • YEAH RIGHT says:

      I agree. Not sure why they give a second test that could be tampered with.

      • Scotty says:

        I think because its not before/after fight time.. This was a random pre fight test that was taken before training camps start at a press conference.. And it might not be a PED.. So they test a B sample and he gets to explain to the commission.. Thats what im guessing

      • Drug Test says:

        There’s a misunderstanding regarding ‘A’ and ‘B’-tests.
        The sample that’s given in a drug test is divided into two containers, ‘A’ and ‘B’. It means that the urine/blood sample in an ‘A’ and ‘B’ test is from the same sample, only split into two containers/tubes. It’s not to seperate tests done at a different time.
        The reason for doing this is, if a person tests positive in a drug test (sample A) they have to make sure the positive result isn’t due to contaminated equipment or errors done during the analyzing. So they do a second analyze on the other half of the sample (sample B) to confirm the result.

        • Xaninho says:

          Thank you for the explanation. That makes perfect sense.

          Now what if the b sample equipment was also contaminated?

  19. MarshmallowMark says:

    Guess they should get an emergency fill-in. Fedor, Dana?

  20. John says:

    New rule following baseball: You fail once you lose a 6 months, twice: a year, and 3 times banned from the sport. No justifications

  21. Khanny says:

    Woah woah woah
    Before you all rip on Overeem, he can submit another sample and still pass it, it wasn’t craaaaaazy off (like Sonnen, yes Chael Sonnen, read the actual document, not that shit that spurs from his mouth), he’ll submit another sample, and pass it, and you ‘fans’ bashing him will all be back on the ‘Reem hype train again :)

    • LCM says:

      It wasn’t “crazy off”? It was almost double the allowable limit. Am I missing something? The fact he can submit another sample is absolutely retarded. He gets tested, is caught blatantly cheating and the response is, “No worries, just try again lolz!” ???

  22. Dan the Lobstertail says:

    Mannnn anyone whos ever gone to a gym in there lives knows u can improve ur physicque but to transform it needs JUICE!!! thats it! Belive it bitch’s! STAY BLACK!

  23. Your a Queer Beaner. Go Moe a Lawn. says:

    this fucking sucks…You guys dont see how bad this really is…

  24. Nick says:

    Is anyone really surprised?

  25. simpleanswer says:

    JDS vs FEDOR

  26. Ste says:

    There will be a fair amount of fighters on steroids in UFC, Sonnen was caught for steroid use, Brock Lesnar has used steroids etc etc etc…. I bet a fair few have dabbled in them in the past..

    And why cant you get to his size naturally? Alot of gym work, eating right and sleeping is the main thing… and these guys have the time to do it…

  27. p says:

    Come on Overeem stop being a homo

  28. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Travis Brown vs Cain

    Mir vs JDS

  29. Donnybrook says:

    Quote from Dana:

    “How (expletive) stupid do you have to be? Seriously dumb. Anybody who’s using (performance-enhancing drugs) right now is an absolute (expletive) moron,” he said.

    “It’s beyond — what’s the word I’m looking for — it’s beyond belief. It’s beyond comprehension. You’re an absolute moron, a brain-dead absolute (expletive) dummy. It goes beyond a guy have any common sense whatsoever.”

    I’m with Dana on this one… f**kin unbelievable.

  30. Mr.Rusk says:

    Lmao really? Already a couple but Chael did’s. Your right 10 to 1 isn’t as bad as 16 to 1, but cheating is cheating is cheating.

    • Thomas says:

      No other way around it! I can’t believe all the folks who thought he was clean. Take a look at him, guys!

    • JC says:

      it said at a level of more than 10-1, they didnt give his exact measure. it could have been 11-1 or 18-1, the article doesnt say.

  31. JDPower says:

    He put some PED’s inside his horsemeat for extra flavor!

  32. feenom says:

    Overeem is blowing the greatest opportunity of his life. It’s obvious he isn’t serious about his carrer. This was an amateur mistake, & he should be embarrassed

    • Twatty Mc.Twatface says:

      he didnt expect a random dugs test and thought he would get away with it. NSAC are not very consistent with randomly testing fighters but tbh with the shit thats been going down lately it doesnt surprise me theyve decided to do random more often and they need to keep at it.
      in the space of 6 months theres been shitloads of fighters found out

      • Khaos says:

        Overeem knows they’ve been on top of him though, look at the number of tests leading up to the Brock fight. They were clearly going to test him again.

        It puts a bit of a shadow on him now, that whole deal with people claiming for the last few years that he must have been on PEDs and then this. God damn it, if it’s too good to be true it probably isn’t, every time we forget that it bites us. Disappointing though, I mean there’s an argument that they’re all on it but seriously, he should have been expecting it

        • Twatty Mc.Twatface says:

          im sick of that argument people have, theyre not all on it. its bloody obvious the ones that are and for a fighter, steds will not help you in the long run. you gas out

          NSAC or any other commision need to recognise that consistent and periodic drug tests needs to be done on each fighter to maintain the integrity of the sport. one could argue its costly, its not that expensive and as such the fighers management can pay for it.
          its needed, this was dont far tooo close to the fight and im pretty sure its intentional to fuck the ufc up as Dana has been saying shit about the LV gangstas controlling certain things.
          they knew he was gonna fail.

  33. josh says:

    What does the scouter say about his testosterone levels?….THERE OVER 9000!

  34. James says:

    I don’t know why everyone is jumping to conclusions. He probably just took some of those tainted supplements that seem to be going around.

  35. MD says:

    I saw this coming form a mile away…. It’s the horse meat.. Where do you think steriods come from? Horses!

    • Hey Yo says:

      c’mon now, do you really think the horses he eats is race horses that has roids in it? the horse meat he eats is from a clean horse with any drugs in it, if you knew anything about a farm you would know all this

  36. Calabama says:

    So fucking disappointing…

  37. Xaninho says:

    If the second test shows he indeed cheated, he’s not only a cheater but also a fucking stupid asshole too. Around UFC 141 the NSAC already said they would randomly test him in the period after that fight.

    If Overeem fails the second test:

    JDS vs. Mir
    Cain vs. Werdum or Bigfoot

  38. OLSI says:

    FUCK THIS MOTHERFUCKER, I KNEW IT, AS FAR AS THE LESNAR FIGHT THEY SHOULD OVERTURN THAT DECISION AS WELL. Brock has lost to real fighters Velasquez and Frank Mir submission expert. This fucking cheater should never fight again. Also a fucking cheater, in Lesnar fight wouldnt stop hitting him in the stomach where he had the surgery. If AO fought JDS he would have gotten knocked the fuck out just like with Chuck Liddell

    • Xaninho says:

      Maybe you don’t know this but Lesnar was arrested with a trunk full of steroids some time ago. Don’t say Lesnar wasn’t on Steroids please…

      • Xanino says:

        It was vitamins they mistakened for steroids trust me thats why he had diverticulosis bc he always eats meat

        • ian mearns says:

          He was arrested for having Human Growth Hormones in his trunk that his lawyer referred to as Vitamins which is a huge cause of his stomach disease. That stuff makes everything grow including your stomach lining making it break down. Not saying hes not a beast but it sucks his body is already breaking down he would have been around forever without that crap.

  39. JAY says:

    FUCK OVEREEM, Go back to finish your career at the Japanese circus where u started beating guys like Fujita, James Thompson and Brett Rogers. The good thing that came out of this is that he will get released and get KTFO by Fedor now. The Overeem brothers are pussys just look at his brothers fight with Griggs. I do agree with OLSI they should overturn Lesnar decision this guy is a fucking cheater

    • It Doesn't Matter What My Name Is!! says:

      They can’t overturn it because he passed all of his tests leading up to the Lesnar fight and the post fight test. Even if he was using then, the commission would never be able to prove it, so unfortunately that win is going to stay on his record.

  40. BJ Penn is the MAN says:

    Put him against Barnett who will fuck him up. Battle of the STEROIDS.
    WTF is up with these SF Guys, King Mo, Overeem, and Cyborg all need to go work in JAPAN. Emelianenko will KO The fuck out of Overeem. I also agree on Lesnar fight, Overeem cheated big time

  41. FUCK OVEREEM says:

    I also Knew this guy was a *****, making fun of Lesnar and WWE they should send this guy to Japan pro wrestling with Barnett and Tim Sylvia lol

  42. Xaninho says:

    Overeem did get cleared for the Lesnar fight. And Lesnar is a known steroid abuser himself…

  43. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    This sucks!!!, These guys need to realize whats ok for Sonnen is not ok for everyone else

  44. dante040 says:

    Test during training camp to catch the cheaters. Brilliant idea ufc. Flush out these cheats! Watch for Mir or Cain to get a shot

  45. Sick Brah says:

    Still ♥ you overeem…. always will
    People that are angry at you and call you a cheater are clearly retarded. We all kinda knew you were on something, just thought you’d be able to pass all the tests.

    I hope to see you fight again soon..

    • Thomas says:

      I don’t get the part about being retarded? I knew it, but is still angry and still calls him a cheater.

  46. MMAnalyst says:

    Jeez… didn’t he used to avoid fighting places where they tested for PEDs? I thought that was knock against him for years… ugh too bad, was hoping to watch JDS smash him.

  47. jbeamazing says:

    fuck I couldn’t wait for jds to ko this fraud I wanted him to get exposed in the octagon not the piss test

  48. DMAC says:

    I mean is this really shocking? Cartoon muscle always = roids! Sucks though I was looking forward to this match up… Fucking reem.

  49. Eric El Bestia says:

    U got to be fuckin kiddin me. That fucked up the whole card. I lost respect for Overeem and I was pulling for him. Overeem and GSP are a no show.

  50. jonesy says:

    they should give werdum the shot…i can for sure see werdum being champ soon judging by his last fight…

    • Thomas says:

      He did very well last time! But i’m still a bigger fan of Cain and Mir. Isn’t Mir next in line by now?

  51. Mwill says:

    When ever an athlete gets larger in areas of their body that normally can’t be increased by lifting weights, it usually equals some sort of roid use that is unless Barry Bonds and Allister Overeem share the same forehead and skull coach!!! If the UFC wants to be taken seriously, that have to randomly test any fighter under contract year around.

  52. MajorTom says:

    Don’t forget that when he was supposed to be tested before the Lesnar fight, he disappeared back home for a few weeks. The NSAC had something to say about that and that’s why he’s been on notice that he’ll be getting tested randomly. Yet he still fails. These guys cycle on and off. It’s a science apparently. Stay on til a certain time before your fight. As for what the steroids do, they allow you to train more because your muscles recover, you carry less body fat. You carry more muscle mass. Makes it easier for him to train harder and more often and thus improve his skills and strength. I would like to see the fight still happen, but I’d like to know that Overeem is off the testosterone.

    Also, I would never believe in a million years that HE needs TRT. So he better not get approved for that.

  53. Anonymous says:

    Now Reem is busted for Roiding, what a bummer. I was so genuinely excited, just can’t imagine anyone as interesting as Overeem replacing. Perhaps Fedor, I doubt that will happen. Thanks Overeem, your a jerk off.

  54. ThaGreenBandit says:

    Holy shit! Overeem?! Positive?! Who woulda thunk it?! But seriously, if you didn’t think this was gonna happen sooner or later…

  55. Jujitsu Player says:

    HAHA I got blasted off a few individuals for saying I was certain he was juiced up….You don’t need a urine test you just need to look at the different in his physique over the years. You cannot develop that sort of mass without steroids/GH/Insulin…and that’s a fact.

    Wish this was discovered after the JDS fight because was really looking forward to that fight, damn. Don’t who the repalcement will be, guess you could put a case for Mir, but IMO JDS would tune him up inside 1 rd.

  56. Ryan Medrina says:

    what are you all so afraid of..?! that overeem could easily get the belt without breaking a sweat…?! and all your ufc idols will be KOd……… you thought right!!!

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      JDS would have broken his glass jaw, roids or no roids

    • James says:

      Very true. He may be a giant monster who eats steroids and craps thunder, but it’s not like he isn’t also an extremely cagey, experienced, veteran, with near perfect technique, and unshakable composure. He was a legit threat to any person from planet earth.

  57. Scotty says:

    Gotta love when people will start bashing Overeem now he got caught for PED’s.. But when he is passing the tests and destroying people, u are going crazy for him.. And u already knew he might be using PED’s in the first place but hasnt got caught.. Now he gets caught, people are like “fuck that cheater” and “blah, blah,blah”.. Now im not saying Im for him using PED’s and for PED’s in sports.. Just not going to start hating the guy cause he got caught when in the back of my mind when he was passing the tests, felt he might been using em anyway.. I mean its disappointing to read and u lose some respect for him but not going to hate em for it cause like i said, in the back of mind all was always thinking he could be on a PED..

  58. GreenTeaBagger says:

    He ate the pink foam they are giving to horses now…..

  59. Danny says:

    FUCKING TRAGIC!!!!!!

  60. thetude says:

    fuck it, lets see JDS and Bones Jones in a rubber match, Jon will be undoubtedly be recovered from kicking rashads ass by then, hahaha

  61. A.James says:

    He’s not on steroids. He’s just Black!
