UFC 141 Drug Tests Clean; Overeem Has Two Left

January 9, 2012

The UFC 141: Lesnar vs. Overeem drug test results are in, and despite the numerous assumptions about both Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem, neither tested positive for any prohibited substances.

Every fighter on the UFC 141 fight card, save for Jon Fitch, was tested for both drugs of abuse and performance enhancing substances, such as steroids. The 19 fighters tested all came back clean.

Fitch was not tested, according to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer, because “he lost.”

Overeem and Lesnar were both tested well ahead of the event as well, as required by the NSAC. Overeem did go through some turmoil, however, and had to meet several special stipulations because of how he and his camp responded to the commission’s initial drug test requirement.

Overeem was drug tested twice prior to UFC 141, again on fight night, and must undergo two more post-fight tests over the next six months to satisfy the conditions set forth by the Nevada commission.
