    Overeem to be replaced by Mir for failing drugs test?

    Just a rumour at the moment from Bloody Elbow.. i think? Read it earlier today somewhere.

    Don't think it's been confirmed or don't know if it's steroids. Not sure if it's exciting or not the prospect of seeing Lesner Vs Mir again?

    Hope not and see It as another attempt to drag Overeem's name through the mud with out any physical proof on a side note I'm not much of a Bloody Elbow fan might be just me but I find the authors of most of their articles a bit annoying they seem to rather get their own opinions over rather actual news.

    Dave Meltzer gave his update on the situation in yesterday's Wrestling Observer update:
    This will likely be cleared up on Monday as Overeem is scheduled to apply for his license before the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Usually fighters licenses are rubber stamped unless there is an extenuating circumstance. People have noted Overeem, Keith Jardine and Vladimir Matyushenko all have license hearings on Monday, but in the case of the latter two, it is standard procedure for fighters over 35 to take more extensive medical tests and the process for granting the license isn't rubber stamped. Overeem's name on the list means there is a reason he needs to be there that is not specified, and Overeem is not over 35 years old.
    ...
    Dana White denied Overeem was injured when asked and also that anything has changed regarding the fight. There is nothing going around about an injury that we've heard to begin with. Overeem left Las Vegas, where he had been training, to return to Holland. He said in his yahoo.com blog that it was because his mother had cancer. Regarding a steroid test, we've been able to confirm that Lesnar was asked to take a test a few weeks back and did. It is usual practice in Nevada if they are going to do a random unannounced pre-fight test of a major main event, they will test both fighters.

    Several major MMA reporters including Kevin Iole and Josh Gross have hinted something is amiss and there were strong rumors last night that Mir would face Lesnar, even though White denied them. If it regards a pending hearing that hasn't happened, while behind the scenes White would no doubt be preparing for any outcome, he has to publicly say the fight is on, because right now, the fight is on. Mir said he was willing to take the fight.

    Does anyone other than Dana really think that Lesnar vs Mir is worthwhile?
