Alistair Overeem’s NSAC Hearing Set For April 24; Status Of UFC 146 Fight Determined Soon After

Alistair Overeem’s hearing in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission will be held April 24, according to a report by THe MMA Show.

Keith Kizer, the Executive Director of NSAC, let it be known that Overeem will be allowed to give an explanation for why his testosterone levels were so high during the pre-fight drug test.

UFC president Dana White has confirmed that a decision on the main event for UFC 146 will be determined after the hearing. Junior dos Santos, the UFC heavyweight champion, will be in the fight, but it remains unknown who he would face if Overeem is not licensed by NSAC.

Here’s hoping that Overeem has a very, very, very good explanation for his failed test. If not, he’s likely out of the UFC after the kind of words White has already said. We’ll remain on our toes awaiting the hearing.
