Head Kick Legend Group Discussion: Alistair Overeem Tests Positive For Elevated Testosterone

Hey lads, posted this because none of the others seem to have yet. The lads from HeadKickLegend discuss the shit storm that has erupted around The Reem's test results! Sure most of you know, but HKL is full of good stuff, and we're starting to update more regularly too.

Cheers, Jack

What's up now homie?

I don't think that we need to bother with the back story here, but if you haven't heard yet, news broke yesterday that Alistair Overeem has failed a random drug test, and will almost surely be refused a license to fight at UFC 146by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

This is what the staff had to say about it:

Chris Hall:

This is the perfect chance for another group discussion. What is your immediate reaction to the news? What should the UFC do with AO moving forward? And who should replace him and why?

Elliot Matheny:

Frank Mir is the obvious choice here. As much play as Mark Hunt is getting lately, this is a guy who has only had his shit together for a year now; his wins are over, at best, pretty mid- tier heavyweights. Mir is riding a 3 fight win streak over much better competition.

I can't help but think that Alistair must have been caught with his pants down by the drug tests at the press conference. I suspect that he's perfected a cycling routine, where his levels will be at a normal level by fight time, and getting tested so far in advance must have caught him before he was able to bring his T levels down. I'm not morally incensed by the fact that Reem was using, and don't see any reason to cut him. Going forward, they just need to be clear that he can't get caught again.
