An interesting detail from Bloody Elbow’s play-by-play of Alistair Overeem’s NSAC hearing:

Overeem tried to flee the building at time of random test, jumped into a car and sped off despite being told that he had to stay to give a sample. Claims he “didn’t realize” he needed to stick around and was going to an interview, then changed that he was going to talk about his battery case, then changed that he was going to try to avoid Golden Glory serving him papers. UFC says they made it entirely clear that he needed to stick around.

When will athletes learn it can be better to just forgo commission hearings and take whatever lumps are gonna get dished out. Because the more details we hear about Alistair’s case, the guiltier he’s looking. Now and in the past.
