Today, Alistair Overeem is meeting with the NSAC to apply for his license as an MMA athlete. He will be asked to present evidence that he has been clean during his suspension and will find out if he is to be licensed today. John Morgan from MMAJunkie is on the scene:

-Blasting through a few reservation dates and grant requests, and now it's time for Overeem.

-Jovial start to Overeem's hearing, as he's questioned about the weather in Florida, his new home.

-Overeem: "We've done everything we can to correct the errors that were made."

-Kizer said Overeem sent in five tests between June and November that were all clean. Additionally, he was tested by NSAC on 11/16 and 12/21.

-Alistair said he's been training during his time off and is actually bigger than he was before.

-Alistair said he has a new nutritionist and a better medical team to ensure he's always clean.

-Pat Lundvall asking if Alistair has insight on any lessons NSAC can learn from this situation.

-Overeem suggest NSAC needs to address the difficulty of arranging testing internationally.

-Motion is on the table and approved unanimously. Overeem has his license.

read offficial Twitter....

Overeem maintained his innocence throughout his NSAC hearings and suggested a prescribed injection was responsible for his heightened ratios. Still, the NSAC declined to issue him a license and refused to hear a new application before Dec. 27. With the issue behind him, Overeem said he's ready to move forward with his career and is looking forward to UFC 156.

"Today I went for my license," Overeem told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) following the hearing. "I'm very happy to inform you guys that I got licensed to fight Feb. 2 in the UFC against 'Bigfoot' Silva.

"For me, it's now back to work, back to entering the gym. I'm already basically in shape, so it's just a couple more weeks of grinding it, and then it's going to be showtime again."

Neither could I.  I was told though that Alistair's film crew is filming it and it will be featured on an episode of the Reem. :(

The way the NSAC was sucking him off in the last hearing, he will have no problem getting a license. They praised the steroid users Overeem and Sonnen (saying Sonnen should help them going forward), and berated Diaz for smoking a plant. The NSAC can fuck themselves, worse than the DMV

Seriously. "Is anything we can do better? Figured we'd ask a gaming cheater if there was some way we could improve?"

What the fuck NSAC?

Overeem had a T/E ratio of 14:1. You're probably confusing his ratio with Chael's 16.9:1 ratio.

Da fuq? Guy fails a test and the commission concludes by asking him for advice?

Oh that's right, this is the same commission that made Chael an advisor to TRT after he also popped.
