UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem, slated to challenge heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos at UFC 146 on May, tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone at a surprise drug screen following last week’s UFC 146 kickoff press conference in Las Vegas.

The bust has put the MMA world into a tizzy over what comes next, and there has been multitudes of speculation about how things will play out.

But there are a lot of details to the situation, and MMAWeekly.com has lead the way in covering the case. If you missed a hot and heavy week of Alistair Overeem coverage, we’ve got a full round-up below:
