UFC president Dana White is none too happy about the news that Alistair Overeem tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone prior to his fight at UFC 146.

White was on a media conference call on Wednesday with members of the Canadian press when he learned about Overeem’s test results.

Overeem, along with five other athletes fighting at UFC 146, were surprise tested following the pre-fight press conference as part of Nevada’s out of competition testing program.

Only Overeem’s test came back positive of the six athletes tested.

“I am beyond pissed about this,” White stated when speaking on the call as first reported by theStarPhoenix.com. “The worst part is that he sat in front of us and lied to us.”

White was reference a pre-fight meeting held between Overeem and UFC officials prior to UFC 146 being scheduled.

The UFC president railed on Overeem or any fighter that would test positive, and obviously this throws a major monkey wrench into the UFC 146 fight card should Overeem ultimately be pulled due to the positive test.

“How (expletive) stupid do you have to be? Seriously dumb. Anybody who’s using right now is an absolute (expletive) moron,” White stated.

“It’s beyond, what’s the word I’m looking for, it’s beyond belief. It’s beyond comprehension. You’re an absolute moron, a brain dead absolute (expletive) dummy. It goes beyond a guy have any common sense whatsoever.”

White’s anger is justifiable given the magnitude of the UFC 146 card, which was slated to be a five fight main card made up of just heavyweights, culminating in Overeem’s bout against Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title.

If Overeem is ultimately unable to take the fight, or the UFC opts to pull him from the bout because of the positive test, they would likely look to replace him with one of the other fighters currently on the fight card.

Right now in the midst of just hearing the news, White admitted there was never a back-up plan in place, nor do they have one in mind right now.

“I don’t have a plan-B,” he said.

Regarding Overeem’s future with the UFC, again White was none too happy with the former K-1 star, and didn’t sound enthusiastic about the first conversation he’ll have with the giant Dutchman.

“It doesn’t look good, does it? It doesn’t look good,” said White.

Junior dos Santos’ camp is just in “wait and see” mode until the UFC or the Nevada Athletic Commission makes their decision.

Ana Guedes, who represents dos Santos, responded via Twitter to the news that Overeem had tested positive.

“The UFC has made no announcement regarding Junior dos Santos’ fight,” she wrote. “We have no comment, this matter falls solely to Nevada Commission and UFC.”

Now it’s just the waiting game to see first what happens with Overeem’s testing results and the commission, and then if the UFC will pull the trigger on a change prior to that happening.
