Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) Executive Director Keith Kizer has told the MMA Show that UFC Heavyweight #1 contender Alistair Overeem will get a hearing on April 24th and that no decision on whether or not to license the Dutch fighter for UFC 146 will be made until then. Overeem failed a surprise drug test following a press conference in Las Vegas to promote his scheduled championship bout against Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 set for May 26 in Vegas.
UFC President Dana White told Wrestling Observer that no decision regarding a replacement bout will be made prior to Overeem's hearing. White assured fans that there will be a title fight on the UFC 146 card.
