Overeem officially applies for license with NSAC

Friday, December 28, 2012

UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem today applied for a license to fight in Nevada in 2013, an official told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

But before he is given the green light, he will need to appear before the state’s athletic commission, which will weigh several options before making a decision.

“He will be required per his previous denial to appear before the full commission at the next scheduled meeting, which is Jan. 8,” Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer told MMAjunkie.com.

“It will be his burden to prove to commissioners that he should be granted a license to compete in Nevada,” Kizer said. “After hearing all relevant evidence, the commission will have the option to deny the license, grant the license unconditionally, or grant the license with conditions.”
