Default Alistair Overeem Explains Why He Failed Pre-UFC 146 Drug Test

I'll give you two guesses of what you think his explanation is

http://www.mmafighting.com/ufc/2012/...-146-drug-test

Quote:
Apr 23, 2012 - Alistair Overeem has broken his silence for the first time since the Nevada State Athletic Commission announced earlier this month that he failed a pre-UFC 146 drug test.

Overeem, who was scheduled to meet Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title next month until the promotion replaced him with Frank Mir, issued a written statement explaining why his testosterone to epitestosterone ratio came back at an above-limit 14:1. The NSAC's T/E ratio limit is 6:1.

In the statement, Overeem announced that he withdrew from UFC 146 and explained why his T/E ratio was so high. According to Overeem's camp, he withdraw on Friday and that's when the UFC decided to replace him with Mir. His manager Glenn Robinson told MMAFighting.com that Overeem didnít "formally withdraw his license application, he withdrew from the fight and asked for a continuance to hear the case so he can prove he is a clean fighter."

You can read the full statement below.
To my friends and fans,

I am deeply saddened to announce that on Friday, April 20, I respectfully withdrew from the May 26 event so that I can request a continuance until my situation with the Nevada State Athletic Commission is resolved.

I cannot express how sorry I am to the Commission, Junior Dos Santos, the fans, the owners and employees of the UFC, my friends and family and anyone else who this has affected.

I absolutely do not believe in, nor do I use performance-enhancing drugs. I am a clean fighter and I will do whatever it takes to prove this to everyone.

Prior to the UFC 146 press conference in March, I aggravated an old rib injury on my left side. My doctor prescribed, and I accepted, an anti-inflammatory medication that was mixed with testosterone. I was completely unaware that testosterone was one of the ingredients in the medication. Although I was unaware, I do realize it is my job to know what I am putting into my body.

I respect the Nevada Commissioners and Executive Director Keith Kizer and what they are doing to keep
the sport of mixed martial arts regulated and safe for athletes. I look forward to working with them in the days and weeks ahead.

Friends and fans, I ask for your patience as I work through this matter. Please support me. I promise to return to the Octagon soon.

Man, what a dummy. After all fighters who have "accidentally" taken something they "didn't know" was in something their "doctor prescribed" for a "legitimate injury", these guys should be asking their docs "Hey, I'm a professional fighter, is there anything in here that could trip me up." If you're not asking that, you're an IDIOT!

On the other hand, I don't think that Overeem had no clue what he was giving himself, so him expecting us to swallow that also makes him an IDIOT!!

His incredible growth the past few years was all natural too, I'm sure.

Weak excuse but he knows admitting it would kill his career. At least with this excuse, he may get to keep fighting.

He failed because he's been taking so many roids, it's caused brain damage and he forgot that he was going to be randomly tested for 6 months. What a tool.

I wished he had given the name of the drug.

Pretty simple, he was injected with a mixture of cortisone laced with boldenone. Its common street name is:
"an anti-inflammatory medication that was mixed with testosterone. I was completely unaware that testosterone was one of the ingredients in the medication. Although I was unaware, I do realize it is my job to know what I am putting into my body."
