Alistair Overeem Passes Second NSAC-Mandated UFC 141 Drug Test (Update)

Alistair Overeem has passed his second NSAC-mandated UFC 141 drug test.

The NSAC’s Keith Kizer confirmed the news to MMA Fighting today along with word that all UFC 141 participants with the exception of Jon Fitch were tested and passed.

All drug tests administered at UFC 141 came back negative for prohibited substances, according to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer on Monday.

Every fighter on the card, except for Jon Fitch, was tested. The news is especially significant considering Alistair Overeem was tested twice on fight week and passed both times. Overeem also passed the test he took in London prior to flying to Vegas, which was asked of him by the commission after he failed to meet their out-of-competition drug test requirements in November.

It’s unclear why Fitch wasn’t tested, however MMA Junkie notes that Fitch may have been in the hospital and unavailable for testing.

Overeem will still have to take two additional random tests over the next six months to satisfy the requirements of the conditional license the NSAC granted him last month.

Update: The only explanation Keith Kizer has given for Fitch not testing is “he lost,” which is pretty much the worst explanation ever when every other fighter who lost on the card was tested.
