Alistair Overeemís NSAC Hearing Set For April 24; Status Of UFC 146

Alistair Overeemís hearing in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission will be held April 24, according to a report by THe MMA Show.

Keith Kizer, the Executive Director of NSAC, let it be known that Overeem will be allowed to give an explanation for why his testosterone levels were so high during the pre-fight drug test.

UFC president Dana White has confirmed that a decision on the main event for UFC 146 will be determined after the hearing. Junior dos Santos, the UFC heavyweight champion, will be in the fight, but it remains unknown who he would face if Overeem is not licensed by NSAC.


Hereís hoping that Overeem has a very, very, very good explanation for his failed test. If not, heís likely out of the UFC after the kind of words White has already said. Weíll remain on our toes awaiting the hearing.

Dana did seem pretty damn pissed, Reem's contract will be on the line for sure, not just his title shot. I have a feeling we've seen the last of him in the UFC.

This is a joke.

WHy in hell are they waiting? So JDS has what a month of knowing who he will fight? People buying tickets have no clue what is going on. What a joke.

What is he going to do? Give some dumb excuse of how he left the country and his doctor gave him wrong tests and the horse meat he's been getting in the US is filled with testosterone?

The man had 14-1 ratio. This is a total waste of time. If NV commission were to licence him then we basically should not go by any rules. It would be a shame if Overeem got the same or less of a suspension as Diaz will get. One guy is hulking up and has testosterone levels 14 times the norm...the other guy smoked a few doobers. Society today is a joke.

Only in America can a guy leave the country and take 1 test 2 weeks late. Get a slap on the wrist and told we are watching you. Random test him and he shows up 14:1 and somehow there is a legit hearing on if he can be licenced?

Joke. Bigger Joke that Dana is holding out some hope and waiting till that date to let anyone know what is going on.

Overeem is a joke. Has always been a joke. Will be entertaining to watch him lie again and act innocent.

Unless they actually buy the fact his horses were injected with steroids than I don't see how he's getting out of this one.

I thought Diaz would get a reduced suspension but this is his second violation so I'm thinking he'll get a year because of that.

I'm going to be so nervous come 24th. I wish there was a live stream for the hearing.

This is ridiculous. It seems like the UFC are going to wait until the hearing before they decide on announcing another opponent. Unreal.

Overeem is a cheater and he got caught with his pants down, I have no desire to see him fight Junior any more, I have no desire to see him fight ever again. His entire HW career has been a farce, one huge, roided up farce. I don't have time for cheating in any sporting competition.

Get rid of him and announce the new opponent already.

I guess we all learned that horsemeat was an anagram for steroids

A 6:1 ratio is legal, so he was not 14x over

He didn't say he was 14x over the legal limit. He said he had a 14:1 t/e ratio. Which he did.
