Here we go again. The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) is putting the fighters on notice. We are testing randomly and will catch you if you are ‘cycling.’ It was not that long ago that a random drug test was ran on a suspicious Alistair Overeem after a pre-fight press conference for UFC 146. The commission ended up catching the Dutch striker with a staggering 14:1 T/E ratio.
The two current TUF 16 coaches Shane Carwin and Roy Nelson have just been hand selected for a random drug test. Well it could be said that the ‘random’ test likely stems from a 2010 illegal pharmacist bust that linked Carwin along with WWE star Kurt Angle to purchases of anabolic steroids.
According to the commission, we will not hear the results of these tests for approximately two weeks. As the news comes in from the commission, we will be reporting it.
