Alistair Overeem has tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone and must now appear before the Nevada Athletic Commission before he can be licensed to fight at UFC 146.
NAC Executive Director Keith Kizer emailed Sherdog.com the test results on Wednesday. The No. 1 contender for the UFC heavyweight title, Overeem is slated to take on champion Junior dos Santos on May 26 in Las Vegas. However, that booking now appears to be in jeopardy.
According to Kizer, Overeem’s testosterone to epitestosterone (T/E) ratio was greater than 10-to-1, exceeding the allowable 6-to-1 limit. Along with five other competitors, “The Demolition Man” was tested following a UFC 146 press conference in Las Vegas on March 27. Frank Mir, Roy Nelson, Antonio Silva, Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos all produced negative tests.
The surprise test marked the first of two randomly administered screens Overeem had been ordered to submit prior to his May 26 outing as per the terms of the conditional license he was granted to compete at UFC 141.
Overeem had been asked to submit a pre-fight urine sample prior to his Dec. 30 clash with Brock Lesnar, but he was unable to immediately comply due to his travel between the United States and the Netherlands. Days later, Overeem submitted a sample to an approved facility in the United Kingdom and was cleared to fight on the condition that he undergo additional testing after the bout. The Dutchman dominated Lesnar in the UFC 141 main event later that month, earning a first-round technical knockout to claim his stake as the No. 1 contender for dos Santos’ belt.

What's not to like about UFC Heavyweight Contender, Roy Nelson? He's a class act guy who always comes to the Octagon bringing a fight with him. I'm no expert, but I predict that his upcoming fight with Antonio "Big Foot" Silva is going to be an all out war.
I had a chance to ask some questions related to his upcoming fight, training camp, and future in the fight game...

UFC President, Dana White defended the promotion’s color commentator, Joe Rogan yesterday at the UFC 146 press conference, after Rogan was asked to “tone it down” by FOX executives during their first show on the network last November, explaining there are no problems and nobody will tell him how to do his job.
White, speaking during yesterday’s UFC 146 press conference, said:
“Just to squash that whole thing, FOX never – the guy that was in his ear telling him to chill out, that was Bruce Connal, the guy who’s our guy. But the guy in the truck from FOX was saying, ‘Oh my God, he’s fucking screaming.’ They said the same thing to me. They’re like, ‘He’s screaming at our fans.’ That’s what we do. We scream at you. We yell at you. That’s not going to change.”
“The first night we went live on FOX, they were telling me to tone it down, too. Me and Rogan are used to screaming at you because you just get all worked up and you’re fired up. If you look at when we go from the prelims on to the pay-per-view, Rogan and I are always screaming. When we come bursting on to FOX, and you have these guys that do the NFL. ‘Why are you screaming at our people? You’re screaming at our fans.’ That’s how we fucking do it. We scream. We get excited. In the earpiece, where you’re listening, they’re like, ‘Dude, tone it down. Calm down. Tone it down.’ Yeah, we can’t calm down. It’s not like we’re going on there and putting on some act or something.”
“Joe Rogan is standing up, screaming about the submission. That’s the way he is. He loves this shit. He gets me fired up. When we talk about fights on the phone or whatever, we get fucking fired up. That’s who he is, and that’s how he is, and that’s why he works here. I love it. Nobody will tell Joe Rogan how to talk, act, do, whatever. He’s not going to change. He is who he is, and that’s why I love him, and that’s why he works for us.”
