Alistair Overeem’s Final Failed Drugs Test Results Show Massive T/E Ratio at 14:1

The Nevada State Athletic Commission have revealed the final results of Alistair Overeem’s failed drugs test following the random test after the UFC 146 press conference in Las Vegas, NV last month, with the number one contender coming back with a massive testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio of 14:1.

The average male produces a T/E ratio around 1:1. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) uses a 4:1 standard for positive tests, and NSAC uses 6:1 as its cutoff, a number used by WADA up until 2006. In NSAC’s original statement announcing the flagged result, Overeem was said to have tested at a level higher than 10:1.

Keith Kizer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission said the heavyweight has the right to request the test’s “B” sample, which, if negative, would make him eligible to receive a fight license. Overeem was tested alongside Dos Santos, Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez, Roy Nelson and Antonio Silva who all passed their tests. The commission ordered the tests to take place following a specially arranged press conference in Las Vegas, something that took the fighters in attendance by surprise.
