Alistair Overeem granted license to fight after passing multiple drug tests

Alistair OvereemThe UFC once again can lay claim to the services of devastating Dutchman Alistair Overeem after the hulking heavyweight received a green-light from the Nevada Athletic Commission to compete in a few weeks at UFC 156. Overeem’s license had been in limbo for nine months after drug testing showed an elevated T:E ratio brought on by testosterone use.

MMAJunkie was on the scene at a NAC hearing today where Overeem’s case was addressed. During the proceedings it was revealed the 32-year old had voluntarily submitted five drug tests during his time on the sidelines (all clean) and also passed screenings the regulatory board issued in November/December.

As a result, the 36-11 Overeem is now free to face off with Antonio Silva on February 2 at the UFC’s annual Super Bowl Weekend event. He is expected to receive a title-shot if successful in the scrap, currently owning an eleven-fight winning streak including success against the likes of Brock Lesnar, Mark Hunt, and Fabricio Werdum.

    So, he said this whole procces have been very informative. And he promised to not Fail another Drug test. So Basically, this means He has spent a hell of alot more money to use P.E.Ds and his shit will not show on a blood or urine test. I’m sorry, Ben a fan of M.M.A for a long time. And back in the day he was a pretty good fighter. Not this Unstoppable monster who has put on 50 lbs of muscle in a little over a year. Just don’t belive him. He most likely has a Couple of sciencetists that work for large pharmasuticle company’s, and a couple doctor’s on staff full time. but it is most likely the thruth though.
