OVEREEM'S UFC 156 BLOOD TEST CLEAN – WITH TESTOSTERONE LEVELS BELOW NORMAL RANGE

BY MMAJUNKIE.COM STAFF ON FEB 26, 2013 AT 8:40 PM ET

A blood test administered to heavyweight Alistair Overeem following his loss at UFC 156 earlier this month has come back clean, and with testosterone levels below the normal testing range.

Overeem (36-12 MMA, 1-1 UFC) fought Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva (18-4 MMA, 2-1 UFC) on the main card of the pay-per-view event at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. He suffered a third-round knockout loss, which spoiled his chance at a heavyweight title shot against champion Cain Velasquez.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) on Tuesday requested and received the test results from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which oversaw the Feb. 2 fight.

Overeem, along with the other 21 fighters on the UFC 156 card, tested clean for performance-enhancing drugs, recreational drugs and drugs of abuse in a post-fight drug test. But Overeem was required to take a blood test in addition to the standard urinalysis.

Overeem was licensed for UFC 156 by the NSAC, but he was denied a license this past April after failing a pre-fight drug test for UFC 146. During a commission hearing, he said he took a mixture of vitamins from a doctor that unknowingly contained testosterone, which caused his test to come back with elevated levels.

At the April hearing, the commission did not suspend Overeem, but kept him from applying for a license again for nine months from his positive test.

But with his blood test form his UFC 156 fight, his testosterone total level actually fell below the normal range of 250-1,100 nano grams per deciliter (ng/dL). Overeem's total testosterone came in at 179 from the test, which was administered the morning after the fight at 8:25 a.m. on Feb. 3.

All other levels within the blood test came back within the normal reference range.

Overeem controlled the first two rounds of his fight with Silva, but in the third, "Bigfoot" stormed to the center of the cage and quickly had Overeem in trouble up against the fence with punches. After eating several big punches, the Dutch former Strikeforce champion finally went down as Silva celebrated the major upset.

He's older and probably abused earlier so of course his levels will be lower.

Yeah this. Of course, this means he can probably go get a TRT TUE now, he has the bloodwork to prove he needs it.

This just confirms what we already know, that he was using in the past. Previous abuse has lead to his body's inability to produce enough testosterone.

I'd like to see Brock pre-surgery fight the clean Reem. I think the result would have been much different.

I highly doubt it.

Fact is roids or not Alistair is a seasoned veteran with top notch striking and a ground game that's good enough to back it up. Brock has never liked getting hit, I've been saying it since the second fight with Mir.

The result would have most likely been extremely similar but maybe without the emphasis on the knees and liver kicks.

As soon as Alistair hit him, Brock would have panicked just like he did against Carwin. Difference being that Alistair would have picked his shots and finished the man.

This is just speculation of course but I just don't see a scenario in which Brock would beat Overoids.

I agree, Brock just doesn't have the experience delivering or taking punches. Alistair mostly gets beaten by guys that he can't finish before they get through to his chin. Which Brock probably would not, even healthy against a non-roided Reem.

Well he abused steroids and due to the testing he wasnt able to abuse them this time and now he body cant produce as much testosterone.

He will be on TRT soon enough and back in nearly tip top shape.
