Alistair Overeem’s Manager Says His Fighter Has Reason For Failed Drug Test

Glenn Robinson, the manager for Alistair Overeem, told Inside MMA’s Ron Kruck during a recent interview that his client has a valid explanation for his failed drug test.

Overeem and UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos are scheduled to meet in May for the title, but “The Reem” must receive his fight license from the Nevada State Athletic Commission if he plans to compete. A hearing is set for April 24.

(Robinson) is very hopeful that he will be granted his license. Robinson also wanted to make it very clear that despite other reports, Overeem did not test high for testosterone. Rather his testosterone-to-epitesoterone ratio was off, and he has a reasonable explanation for why that is, which he will present to the Commission.

If all goes well, Overeem will be given his fight license and will face dos Santos. If not, the UFC will have an interesting decision to make regarding the title fight, and the future of Overeem.
