Overeem, five others all given surprise drug test today

The Nevada State Athletic Commission administered surprise drug tests this afternoon to Alistair Overeem, Cain Velasquez, Junior Dos Santos, Roy Nelson, Frank Mir and Antonio Silva following their appearance at a press conference for the 5/26 UFC 146 show in Las Vegas.

Overeem was to be tested several times unannounced due to the controversy regarding him not getting the right test and delaying tests and such before the Brock Lesnar fight.  When he was approved for a license he was told that he would be given unannounced tests over the next six months.

The commission decided that since the top six fighters on the show were all in Las Vegas at the same time, and Overeem was already to be tested, to test everyone.
