It's no secret that Alistair Overeem's removal from UFC 146 was a huge headache for Dana White. Overeem failed a random test and received what amounted to a nine-month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. He is eligible to re-apply in late December and could fight for the UFC as early as the start of 2013. Dana White made it clear he's still not exactly enamored with Overeem after UFC 146 though (transcription via MMA Weekly):

"He lied to me. He sat in front of us, he lied to us, I’m not interested. I don’t have to deal with people I don’t want to deal with and I don’t want to deal with him, Lorenzo will."

Kinda weird that Overeem will still get a title shot when he returns or that's what I read/heard.

I believe you just lied to a bunch of fighters, Faber, Ivan, Mcdonald, Barao.

True story, and I understand the frustration with Dana, but he did that in an effort to maintain an element of surprise for the UFC fans. I'm not mad at Allistar for pissing hot, but it's not a parallel at all. I get injury recovery and as a matter of fact I'm in favor of using various hormone elevators to help athletes in recovery, but Overeem has been in violation before, avoided tests before, gained 70 lbs of mass in a matter of a couple of years, and been a user suspect for a long time. It seems to me that regulation is the issue, and that either Overeem's Dr. needs to have his license revoked, or Allistar needs to fess up to knowing what was in his cocktail. Passed all that, I just want to see the guy get back in the cage and demolish fighters like he does best.

Dana could have waited till he had the opponent for Faber and then revealed instead of telling them it will be someone else.

The fans already knew the possible replacement.

To add to your point, Barao was on Tweeter the whole day telling everyone to tune into TUF for a "surprise announcement."

Completely hypocritical. I hope someone has the balls to call out Dana about the canning of Marquardt vs Overeem's situation.

different circumstances. Marquardt fucked the card up the day before the event. Overeem pissed hot like 2 months ago giving them enough time to set up fights and let the fighters get a decent camp in
