Overeem Out of Lesnar Fight?
So far it's still just a rumor but where there's smoke there's usually fire. Really, how surprising would it be if Overeem got busted for steroid use?
Not surprised? Me neither.
I'm guessing we'll be seeing Lesnar/Mir III at the end of the month. What do you guys think?

Steroids should be mandatory for all of Lesnar's opponents.Real Join Date: Nov. 2003

live updates from the board here-
Brian Hemminger here. It's 6:03 p.m. and we're just about to get started but it appears Alistair Overeem is fourth on the docket, at least that's what I'm hearing. I'll keep you Maniacs updated with everything that goes on.
The board discusses out of competition drug testing. They mention that Brock Lesnar passed his test and when Overeem was brought up, they said, "Well deal with that later."
not looking good for old overroids. was only a matter of time.

God damn it. I am really looking forward to that fight, seriously though, how dumb can you be to take anything even close to steroids for a such an important fight!

As opposed to taking steroids for a relaxing vacation?
The idea of taking steroids is to improve your physical abilities. Pro fighters do it to gain some advantage for their matches. So logically, they would especially take them for the important fights.
I hope that explains it :)

It was tainted horsemeat, from the Kentucky Derby.

-Alistair Overeem is on the line from Holland. It's late there, which makes it even stupider that they waited this long into the conference to talk to him.
-On the 17th of November, they requested a test with Alistair Overeem and the next day, they were informed there was no place for Lesnar to be tested. Lesnar went to a hospital three days later than they would have liked but he tested and was fine. They didn't hear back from Overeem's camp for several days, not until the 21st and they were informed he had flown back to Holland. Overeem, I believe the 23rd eventually did take a test but all he did was a blood test which was not what they asked for.
-They received the blood test on the 30th and all levels were normal, but it wasn't the urine test they requested.
-From the sounds of it, Overeem went to Holland to be with his sick mother at 6 p.m. on the day he was notified of his test he needed to take.
-Overeem took an observed urine test on December 7th, but the results aren't back yet.
-The commission finds it 'somewhat incredulous' that Overeem couldn't find a proper testing facility for five days.
