"I spoke with Glenn Robinson, manager of Overeem and he says he is very respectful and is hopeful that he will be granted his license and the entire team is very confident that he will be facing Junior dos Santos come May 26th" said [Kenny] Rice. "Now Robinson wanted to make it very clear that despite other reports, Overeem did not test high for testosterone, but rather his testosterone to epitestosterone was off and he has a reasonable explanation to why that is, which he will present to the commission next Tuesday."

To me, that's like saying you didn't test positive for Crack, but did for Cocaine.

I can't wait for next weeks hearing. Hopefully we get a better stream this time, last time it kept cutting out because whoever streamed it, cell phone kept dying.

Well regardless of why he needs it, based on his T/E ratio, he is clearly abusing it. So if it wasn't that his testosterone was abnormally high, then he must have 1/3 the normal level of E. I'm no doctor, so I don't know if that is even possible.

A better analogy would be a positive pregnancy test, while claiming to be a virgin. We'll just have to wait and see if there is a claim for in vitro fertilization.

Overeem's testosterone is just really active.
