If Brock hadn't retired and signed with WWE, he'd have gotten it. Wonder if he's kicking himself, lol.

As ive said in the past 80% of fighters use peds, but I'm sure some moron will attempt to flame and discredit that statement as they have in the past.
Well, 5 out of 6 passed a random test weeks before the event. That equals 16.6 percent. I'm skeptical about your 80% claim.

There was another UFC 146 tested fighter who stopped a cycle 10 days before the screening on 3/27. He ended up beating the test. - Brian ‏ @FrontRowBrian

My guess would be Bigfoot.

How on earth would Brock have gotten the shot? He's looked like shit in his last 3 fights. Putting him in with one of the best strikers in the division would be very stupid and a waste of time.

Could've been Nelson as well. He's known for roiding and he said he barely passed.

He won against Carwin. Taking a beating in the first doesn't change that.

As to answer your hostile question, dude... it's Brock Lesnar. Toss in a little of Dana White's undying love and guaranteed PPV buys, and boom... title shot.

Though I was only being partially serious. Chill out, slick.

Was so pumped for this fight, but this is a great victory in the war against performance enhancers in MMA.

Mir is the only guy in the UFC right now who could feasibly jump into the title fight, and IMO the only guy outside the UFC is Cormier. I dont really care who gets it, I just dont want JDS to be sidelined because of this.

Panic not though, these things tend to be a lot of hot air at first. The B sample may produce different results, Dana may be able to work some magic, who knows. If Reem cant wriggle out, I hope he is punished and I hope JDS still fights.

Well this sucks

Reem needs to sort it out, he just ruined what was the biggest moment of his career. I thought JDS would win, but Reem still had a decent enough chance. Dana is fuming big time right now. Obviously it's not a surprise, but it's like what the security man used to say to us at secondary school, 'don't give a **** what you lot do, just don't get caught doing it'.

So - as you'd expect - Dana isn't all that happy:

Quote:
The Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title match next month between champion Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem is in jeopardy after Overeem tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone.

A random drug test was conducted on March 27 in Las Vegas, when six fighters in the top-three bouts at UFC 146 were gathered for a press conference to promote the May 26 event. Overeem tested positive for increased testosterone levels. According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s Keith Kizer in a news release issued Wednesday, Overeem’s testosterone-to-epitestosterone levels were greater than 10-to-1.

Under NSAC guidelines, anything above a 6-to-1 ratio is considered a violation.

“I am beyond pissed about this,” said UFC president Dana White on Wednesday in a conference call with Canadian media that had been scheduled for one week.

“I’m so (expletive) mad right now I can’t even begin ... ”


Dos Santos, Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez, Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva all tested negative, Kizer noted.

Overeem will have to appear before the NSAC in order to be licensed in the state, Kizer said in the release.

The Dutch heavyweight made his UFC debut last December, beating former heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar in the UFC 141 main event in Las Vegas. His appearance wasn’t without controversy, however.

Overeem missed a drug test in Nevada, saying he had flown back to Holland to be with his sick mother. A pair of drug tests conducted in Europe were then mishandled until he eventually submitted a sample to an accredited lab. He passed that test, along with a subsequent test in Nevada prior to UFC 141, and was granted a conditional license. Among the conditions of that license, he would be subjected to random tests throughout 2012.

White was incredulous over the positive result, struggling to find words when the topic was broached.

“The worst part is that he sat in front of us and lied to us,” said White, noting that Overeem has been in UFC’s offices meeting with White and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta, where he insisted he was clean and would pass all drug tests.

The UFC president feels that health issues, the loss of money and damage to reputation should be more than enough to deter fighters from using performance-enhancing drugs.

“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.”


Should Overeem indeed be pulled from the UFC 146 main event, it leaves a major hole in the card. Velasquez and Mir are currently scheduled to meet in a No. 1 contender’s bout, but the drug test has led to speculation that Mir would receive the title shot. Velasquez lost the belt to dos Santos last October, while Mir — himself a former champion — is on a three-fight winning streak, with victories over Mirko Cro Cop, Roy Nelson and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

White said it was too early to announce any changes to the card. He said he learned of the Overeem test results literally 30 minutes before the media call.

“I don’t have a plan-B,” he said.

He also doesn’t know what Overeem’s future with the company holds. White said he’s still waiting to hear from the Nevada commission and for Fertitta to hear Overeem’s side of the story.

“It doesn’t look good, does it?,” he said. “It doesn’t look good.”

On Overeem's future in the UFC "It doesn't look good does it?"

Uh-oh Reem

Don't know much about steroids but I would imagine it's more common in other promotions than the UFC, just due to the no BS attitude of it's owners. And I think the fighters that do it are probably using it more for rehabilitation purposes rather than performance enhancing.
