The last time we saw Alistair Overeem was December 30, 2011 when he defeated former UFC heavyweight champion in the main event of UFC 141. Overeem was fighting under a conditional license from the state of Nevada, and part of those conditions included random drug tests. When Overeem tested positive for high levels of testosterone, the NAC suspended him for nine months. His suspension is up in late December, and the UFC is planning on him fighting at UFC 156 against Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Overeem will have to jump through some hoops to make it happen, but NAC Director Keith Kizer is saying there is an avenue for him to be able to fight.

According to Las Vegas Review Journal:

Overeem’s appearance on the card is pending approval from the Nevada Athletic Commission as he is currently serving a nine-month suspension for an out-of-competition drug test conducted by the NAC that revealed elevated testosterone levels. The 32-year-old is eligible to re-apply for a license on Dec. 27.

“Come Dec. 27, he’s like any other fighter,” NAC executive director Keith Kizer said. “He’s free to apply for his license. The commission will not do it administratively, however. He has to appear at a commission meeting. The commission can go any way they want to at that meeting. They could say yes, they could say no, they could say yes with conditions. All of that will be on the table, but nothing can happen as far as licensure until after (Dec. 27).”
