Alistair Overeem Passes First Drug Test For UFC 141 (Update)

[blackbirdpie id=”149181686163312642″]

Alistair Overeem vs. Brock Lesnar is one drug test closer to actually happening next week.

Dana White hinted that Overeem passed the first urine test mandated by the NSAC last week in the tweet seen above. Bloody Elbow’s Brent Brookhouse confirmed it shortly thereafter.

Overeem will still have to take another test when he arrives in the US for the fight next week, but it’s my understanding that it will be the same test he just took in the UK late last week. So unless he takes something between now and then, which is extremely unlikely considering he knows the test is coming, there shouldn’t be any reason why he won’t pass that one too.

Update: The NSAC has confirmed that Overeem has passed the test. They also noted that the sample that was sent to Germany on Dec. 7 was never tested and destroyed.
