    Default Shocker: Alistair Overeem fails random drug test, fight with Dos Santos in jeopardy

    http://www.thestarphoenix.com/sports...908/story.html

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight title match next month between champion Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem is in jeopardy after Overeem tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone.

    A random drug test was conducted on March 27 in Las Vegas, when six fighters in the top-three bouts at UFC 146 were gathered for a press conference to promote the May 26 event. Overeem tested positive for increased testosterone levels. According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s Keith Kizer in a news release issued Wednesday, Overeem’s testosterone-to-epitestosterone levels were greater than 10-to-1.

    Under NSAC guidelines, anything above a 6-to-1 ratio is considered a violation.

    “I am beyond pissed about this,” said UFC president Dana White on Wednesday in a conference call with Canadian media that had been scheduled for one week.

    “I’m so (expletive) mad right now I can’t even begin ... ”

    If the fight is off, who would you rather see JDS face?

    Mir
    Silva
    Velasquez
    Hunt
    Struve
    Gonzaga
    del Rosario

    Frank Mir has jumped up and asked for the fight. DFW seems to love Franky but I think Velasquez gets asked first.

    JDS wil KO Mir in about 20 seconds. If Nog put him on queer street, Carwin KO'd him, and Brock turned his face into hamburger...JDS is going to fucking decapitate Mir. Honestly, I'd rather see Hendo step up and fight JDS than Mir. I think Cain should get the fight instead, but you honestly can't argue with Mir getting it. I just don't think he's got any shot.

    As for the Reem. Is anybody even remotely shocked? There can't be anyone who thought that he legitimately added the muscle, can there? Not shocked at all and honestly, I don't know why the hell Dana is upset. He's an idiot if he thought Reem was clean. He knew the bed he was making and he slept in it. A risky gamble that bit him in the ass. I don't think Reem deserves to be in the UFC, honestly.

    We'll see how this plays out. Right now there are rumors that the fights have already been altered in case Reem isn't allowed to fight..the new match ups would be Mir/JDS, Cain/Silva, and Big Country/Mitrione.

    It's true that on paper Mir hardly stands a chance against JDS. The match to make is Velasquez or, failing that, Hunt. I know Hunt hasn't necessarily worked himself into the top five but the guy would guarantee a good scrap.

    Agree with Mamba, DFW can't even feign an ounce of anger about Reem testing positive. Anyone with half a brain knew something wasn't right there and I'm sure he's heard whispers himself being a foremost member of the sport.

    Mir and Hunt both have 3 wins in a row, Cain could warrant a re-match just based on his past. As mentioned, Mir seems like a really bad matchup but its a toss up as to who they plug in there.

    Hendo is an interesting idea but its hard to see him winning against JDS. JDS is 6'4 and would have 35+ lbs on Hendo. Old, slow, 5'11 Fedor doesn't compare to JDS right now.

    Plus Hendo was just assured the next shot at Jones or A. Silva, fighting JDS would set him back if he were to lose.

    Some other outside-the-box ideas could be Machida or Rampage. They're both in 205 lb purgatory having lost to JJ as well as losing some other big fights recently. I assume Rampage is way out of shape but at least he wouldn't have to worry about making 205 lbs. Hes winding down his career and could get excited for a title shot with a guy who will stand and trade with him- not to mention another big payday. I'm guessing Lyoto is a training partner of JDS', but if hes not that could be an interesting fight, he really should be looking at dropping to 185 though, not taking random HW fights.

    For the record, Chael's testosterone ratio (17:1) was much higher than Ubereem's (14:1).
