Alistair Overeem has filed an application for a new fighter's license with the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
Keith Kizer, executive director of the commission, confirmed the news with Bleacher Report on Sunday. Kizer also said that he "assumes" Overeem will be in attendance for an April 24 hearing regarding his test failure for elevated testosterone to epitestosterone.
Kizer also told Bleacher Report that Overeem has also not requested that his B-sample be tested.
When a fighter gives a urine sample during the drug screening process, his urine is divided into two samples. If the A-sample fails, the fighter has the option to request that the B-sample be tested. If the B-sample is clean, the fighter likely would not be punished.
Filing a license application is a risk for Overeem. If his application is denied due to the test failure, he likely would not be able to apply for a new license until April 2013.
