It appears Alistair Overeem‘s fate for UFC 146 will be decided on April 24 at a hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

According to Keith Kizer, Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Overeem filed his application for a fight license last week, but because of a positive drug test returned for elevated levels of testosterone, he will have to appear before the commission to receive consideration for his application.

Kizer also confirmed that as of now, neither Overeem nor his representation have requested that the “B” sample, taken in conjunction with the commission’s out of competition testing, be tested prior to the meeting.

Overeem’s “A” sample tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone coming back at a 14 to 1 ratio.

Now the former K-1 Grand Prix champion will have to appear before the commission on April 24 to request a license for his fight against Junior dos Santos at UFC 146.

The commission can then decide if they will grant him a license for the fight, or if they find grounds to deny the license based on the drug test results, it could end up with Overeem being unable to apply for another license in Nevada for a year.

The commission hearing will start at 9 a.m. PT on April 24 and that will be the time Overeem’s license will be decided upon by the commission.
