UFC President Dana White lets you know how he feels about each and every topic concerning MMA and his promotion. So, when White was asked to talk about the recent Alistair Overeem-failed drug test situation, the brash boss got a bit red in the face.
Overeem is currently awaiting a hearing in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission that will determine if he receives his fight license and can face Junior dos Santos for the heavyweight title at UFC 146.
“We’re waiting to see what the Nevada State Athletic Commission (does). Just to address that real quick. I think I made myself pretty clear when this thing happened; I don’t have the temperament to talk about this,” said White at a post-event press conference this past weekend. “I will say things that you guys will love and I will hate next week. Everybody gets due process. Alistair Overeem will have his due process, we’ll see what happens and we’ll go from there.”
Overeem failed a surprise drug test given by NSAC following a press conference to promote UFC 146 earlier this month. If he fails to receive a license to fight he will be replaced in the title-bout.
MMATraining Take: It just doesn’t seem like NSAC is going to let Overeem receive his fight license. So, the big questions are; what does the UFC do with the main event in May, and what happens to Overeem in the UFC?
