Dana White Says “Alistair Overeem Will Have His Due Process” In Regards To Upcoming Hearing

UFC president Dana White has decided to take the high road in regards to the ongoing Alistair Overeem situation that continues to push a dark cloud over the UFC 146 card.

Overeem, who is scheduled to go before the Nevada State Athletic Commission in hopes of obtaining his fight license despite a failed pre-fight drug test, has kept quiet on the subject as well.

During a post-fight press conference this weekend, White was asked once again for his take on the drama.

“I think I made myself pretty clear when this thing happened. I don’t have the temperament to talk about this,” White said. “Everybody gets due process. Alistair Overeem will have his due process with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, we’ll see what happens, and we’ll go from there.”

About the only information White has provided concerns Frank Mir and Cain Velasquez, who he said would still meet on the May 26 card in a No. 1 contender match. Of course, that could change once we hear from the NSAC in regards to Overeem’s status.
