Default Pros React to Alistair Overeem's Failed Drug Test

From MMAFighting.com:

Quote:
Apr 4, 2012 - For the second time in as many UFC fights, Alistair Overeem finds himself on the wrong side of a drug testing controversy.

The wound is still fresh, but here's what we know so far: Overeem failed a surprise drug test issued on Tuesday, March 27, following the UFC 146 press conference. Overeem's testosterone/epitestosterone levels ranked above a 10-to-1 ratio, far exceeding the 6-to-1 limit. The heavyweight now has a right to request testing of his "B" sample, and will be required to appear in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) if he hopes to seek licensure.

In the interim, it appears as if Overeem's heavyweight championship fight against Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 is in severe jeopardy, throwing the UFC's entire heavyweight extravaganza into disarray.

Following the NSAC's announcement, a surge of Overeem's contemporaries took to Twitter, along with dos Santos' management team and BALCO founder Victor Conte, to weigh-in on the mess.

When is @danawhite going to wake up and smell the UFC testosterone abuse party! How much more obvious can this rampant problem become?

Glad to see he finally got caught. I've never liked him anyway and I knew it would be sooner rather than later that he would fail a test after his BS before the Lesnar fight. It sucks for Brock even though he said he was going to be done with fighting anyway. Who knows though...if he would have won he may have stuck with it a bit longer which I wish he would have but with his health issues and now back with WWE collecting a pretty nice pay check and will most likely a much lighter schedule than most other wrestlers.

I'll be interested in seeing how much Overeem's physique changes if he is not cut from UFC or Strikeforce if he hasn't been already. May not change much because I think he will still use something even after failing this test and hope he doesn't get caught again. He'll probably go back to K-1 as long as he doesn't have to fight in the states lol
