So if a Frate Trane fails a pre-fight drug test and is unable to show his/her Frate Trane status in an upcoming fight, does that person automatically get removed from the official MiddleEasy Frate Trane list? Seriously, how does that work? Technically, all Frate Tranes would be able to dominate all drug testing — whether or not they’re on an illegal/banned substance.
According to Steven Marrocco at MMAJunkie via a press release issued by NSAC’s Keith Kizer, Alistair Overeem has failed the surprise drug test administered to the participants of the UFC 146 press conference held last week. It appears Overeem’s first sample (A) came back with a 10-1 ratio which would place it significantly higher than the 6-1 limit outlined by the commission. Keith Kizer mentioned that he still is waiting for Overeem’s second urine sample to be returned (B) and if it is indeed negative, he will still be able to take on Junior dos Santos at UFC 146.
Keep in mind that nothing has been set yet. As of right now, Overeem is still fighting for the title at UFC 146. However, one can only assume ZUFFA is ear deep in phone calls in order to find a last-minute replacement just in case Ubereem’s license is suspended.
