What he said. The test he failed was a random pre-fight test about 4 months after he beat Brock Lesnar.

In a way, it seems like he probably should be. He missed his original random pre-fight test against Lesnar, and was only granted a conditional license to fight.

Part of those conditions were to test clean in two future random tests. Of course, he failed his first random test, so you would think that would void his conditional license and make the Lesnar fight a NC.

But the NSAC only has a very limited set of conditions in which they can turn a result into a NC and it didn't foresee these circumstances so the win stands. They also can't do it ex post facto, or Barnett's win over Randy would be a NC too.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.

Cause Lesnar retired so for the NSAC to pursue it seemed pointless.

Because kicking Lesnar in the colon negates any punitive action.

Do people actually have a problem with fighters using TRT to help cure injuries?

Overeem never had TRT, he only claimed his doctor prescribed him an anti-inflammatory drug containing testosterone. And yeah, I have a problem with that if you're going to fight someone.
