Alistair Overeem on his failed drug test

Here’s what Alistair Overeem has to say about his recent steroid situation:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s been nearly two days since his T/E ratio was found to be 14:1, a slightly suspicious ratio. Maybe we can blame the silence on Overeem’s personal assistant – you know, the one that dropped the ball so conveniently when Overeem missed the NSAC’s first random testing. Or maybe it’s Authentic Sports Management at the helm, and they’ve got a plan for minimizing the sh*tstorm Alistair finds himself in. Maybe dropping a short and simple statement over the weekend while everyone is vibing on Jesus and eating Matzos might minimize the story a little? 

At this point I’m thinking a straight up admission would be such a refreshing change of pace that it might be better than whatever goofy denial I’m sure is in store for us. From there he just needs to disappear from the public eye for a while and he’ll be halfway towards pulling off a Carwin.

    Admitting he did it would be the worst thing he could possibly do. Honesty wins no reward in the eyes of the commission, just ask anyone who came clean only to be hammered by a lengthy suspension.

  • fightlinker

    via a funny distinction regarding his licensing status, he isn’t actually getting suspended or anything for getting caught

  • mobius

    wasn’t uberoid 14:1? I think it was chael who came in at a toasty 16:1.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I hope this leads to a dope episode of The Reem

  • fightlinker

    you are correct

  • SHORT_BUS

    I have a couple questions for Mr. Kizer (These questions have nothing to do with Alistair Overeem):

    – How can the commission compel someone to take an “out of competition” test when they are not currently licensed in that state?

    – What would happen if a fighter who is not currently licensed and had not yet submitted a request for a license, refused to take the test?

    I don’t see any “legal” way they could hold that against a fighter.

  • SHORT_BUS

    If Overoids knew he was dirty he should have never taken the test. Remember when Nick Diaz went AWOL a few years back when the CSAC wanted him to take a piss test? All he did was un-submit his license request and he faced no adverse action from the commission.

    Overeem submitting an “out of competition” urine sample is akin to allowing a police officer to search your vehicle during a routine traffic stop simply because he asked if it would be ok to search. He has no legal authority to conduct the search but if he asks and you authorize it, you waive your rights. Overeem basically waived his rights IMO.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    ShortBus – I believe his conditional license to fight Chestnar was based on several follow-up tests being clean.  So he already agreed to these.

  • SHORT_BUS

    @DJ ThunderElbows

    Word on the street is that he’d already fulfilled the conditions of the conditional license.

    – Overeem’s license was issued with three stipulations. First, Overeem must submit an observed urine sample within 72 hours at a NSAC-recognized facility in Europe. He will also be tested upon arriving in the United States from the Netherlands prior to UFC 141. Finally, Overeem will be subject to two random drug tests in the six months after his Dec. 30 bout with Lesnar.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I thought this was done because he didn’t fulfill the first conditions you mentioned.  Well, no matter since he clearly agreed to this one.

    EDIT:  Kizer says it was due to him applying for the title fight in May plus he was still under the conditions of the previous fight.

    EDIT 2:  In that interview he later says it was more because he was intending to be licensed again, but it’s a bit muddy.

  • SHORT_BUS

    Applying for a license and “intending” to be licensed are two very different things. Had he submitted paperwork seeking a license or not?

    If he wasn’t licensed, hadn’t formally submitted a request for a license and had already fulfilled the conditions of his conditional license from the Lesnar fight, he should have declined the NSAC’s request for a urine sample. If he said no, there is nothing they could have “legally” done to him.

    But since he agreed to take the test he waived his rights and pretty much black balled himself in Nevada.

  • agentsmith

    It doesn’t really matter.  If you ever want to fight again in Nevada, when they ask you to piss in a cup your only response better be “how full?”  Refusing to play ball with the commission is like digging your own grave.

  • SHORT_BUS

    From a “good ole boy” standpoint, yes. From a “legal, letter-of-the-law” standpoint, no.

  • SHORT_BUS

    If they called Manny Pacquiao today and told him to come submit a sample the answer would be no.

    Shortbu – Pac-man is fighting in two months and violated previous drug testing requirements?

    Leti – WTF is up with your encoding?  Are you doing that on purpose?  Is it just my browser?  Is anyone else seeing that?
