Apparently Palhares is seeing a shrink to see if they can temper some of his nuttiness a little. Interesting that his manager is being quite open about it.

He comes from a very simple background. He comes from a background that somebody here in the United States would have a very, very hard time understanding.

"But he does tend to go on automatic a lot, and that's something we are trying to straighten out."

I was listening to Sherdog radio and it was mentioned that Overeem might have left the US to avoid a "Out of competition drug test". I know he left the country to train in Holland again b/c his Mother is seriously ill again, so I really believe he left the US to avoid a drug test.

Looks like Frank Mir has been asked to "be prepared" to step in for Alistair Overeem against Lesnar if NSAC says no license. #MMA #UFC
This is not looking good.

Just to be clear, the @ufc didn't call @thefrankmir, we called them. We told them we'd be ready if something happened. #getyourfactsright
Really hope it's nothing.

NSAC said Brock's test came back clean. No word yet on Overeem.

NSAC says that almost every single one of the random tests has been completed within 48 hours. Says "one will be discussed later today."
Quote:

Their wording indicates that Overeem did not take his test. But they have overtly stated that yet.

Lesnar and Overeem were contacted to have tests done. Lesnar went to a hospital to do it. Overeem "we'll deal with later" the commission says. Lesnar was clean.

My guess is that Overeem takes his test next week and this whole thing is a non-issue.

I think the issue is that he left the US when he was supposed to have it done. I could be wrong.

Breaking news: The Janitor has been licensed to fight!

No reason to keep following this hearing.

NSAC says they asked Overeem and Lesnar to take drug tests. Lesnar did it and it was fine. They didn't hear from AO for 4 days

NSAC says they made request to test Overeem on 11/17, but he left for Holland on 11/17.

Alistair Overeem did the right test on 12/7. They hope to have the results "later this week."
Nothing will come of this. He picked the right time to cycle on and off and that's that. Pretty straight forward. The UFC could remove him if they wanted, but I doubt that.

Yeah, but the NSAC could remove him from that card.

He left the country when he was supposed to take it (11/17) and didn't submit it until 12/7. That's why their pissed right now.

Haha yeah, I spoke too soon. His timeline of how he left the country is ridiculously shaky. NSAC is acting like he's up for murder.

I'm pretty sure the only reason why he left is b/c he had to flush his system b/c if he would have taken a urinalysis on that day he knew he wouldn't pass it. Alistair sounds guilty as hell right now. He's stumbling all over the place.

Especially pointing out he was at 203 pounds in Japan. He's dust.
