The Nevada State Athletic Commission denied Alistair Overeem's license on April 24 due to elevated testosterone levels. This was well documented.
UFC President Dana White has spoken to the media recently about how Overeem lied to his face. That set a fire under White's backside. It is clear that the heavyweight has struck a nerve with the brass.
Instead of a 12-month ban, the superstar heavyweight was given a generous nine-month wait where he can then re-apply for a license.
But then what?
The UFC is still contemplating how they will respond to the 14:1 ratio and the subsequent fallout that has had the UFC searching for replacement after replacement for UFC 146.
These are their options.
