Overeem, who was slated to fight current champion Junior dos Santos just failed a prefight drug test, less than two months before they're set to battle.
With Overeem now likely to face a lengthy suspension, the UFC heavyweight division is now in shambles.
The man who Overeem destroyed in December can't rescue the UFC, as Brock Lesnar signed a deal to return to the WWE just this past Saturday.
Overeem, a man that UFC fans have clamored to see in the Octagon for years may have just jeopardized his career in the organization. Though his great athletic ability, charisma and overall look make him appear to be a huge star in the making, his decision making is costing him big time.
No matter this potential he still needs the UFC much more than they need him, and it's a dumb move like this that could have him fighting in Europe for some third-rate organization.
With Alistair now likely out at UFC 146, who may fight Dos Santos and try to bring some balance back to this division that's in turmoil? Let's take a look.
