Today's Mixed Martial Arts News and Analysis Headquarters

Alistair Overeem’s numbers in his failed drugs test have been confirmed as incorrect, but not in the way that he’d hoped for.

Originally it was reported yesterday by the Nevada State Athletic Comission that the gigantic heavyweight had recorded a testosterone-to-epitestosterone level of 10:1 which was over the enforced 6:1 limit.

Today however, NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer revealed that Overeem’s urine sample actually revealed a level of 14:1 which puts him at more that double the allowed limit.

The average male produces a ratio of around 1:1 and, based on this, the World Anti-Doping Agency uses a 4:1 ratio for positive tests.

Overeem still has the option left to have his “B” sample tested but, in the light of this latest revelation, this now seems unlikely.

In the event of Overeem requesting the test the NSAC will inform its principal drug-testing facility to co-ordinate the test with the stored sample. The heavyweight contender would be responsible for the costs and the results would be ready within a two week period.

No official line has been passed by the company about Overeem’s replacment but with UFC 146 looming, an announcement is expected in the upcoming days.
