Doctor who prescribed Alistair Overeem medication popped in 2004 for dealing 'controlled substances'

Alistair Overeem is currently trying to explain why he failed a pre-fight drug test in Nevada. Hear his argument right here.

And the plot thickens...

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight Alistair Overeem, who appeared in front of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today (April 24, 2012), has attributed the results of his failed drug test back on March 27 to anti-inflammatory medication he received out of competition to help with his recovery from a rib injury.

That medication, which included self-injections containing testosterone, was prescribed by performance-enhancement doctor Hector Oscar Molina, who was referred to "The Reem" by former UFC fighter Tra Telligman.

The same Dr. Hector Oscar Molina that was fined $25,000 and slapped with restrictions on his practice for three years for "prescribing controlled substances and dangerous drugs over the Internet without establishing a proper physician-patient relationship."

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram has the gory details, after the jump.

The action was initiated when a complaint was filed with the medical board by a Colorado man who received drugs prescribed by Molina from the unregulated Internet pharmacy, www.prescriptionconsultation.com. It is no longer operating under that name.

According to the complaint, which is posted on the state medical board Web site, the patient obtained hydrocodone and other medications in increasingly stronger dosages. The original orders and refills were authorized by Molina.

The complaint says that the patient was also being treated by his own physicians at the time and became addicted to the medications.

According to the state medical board, Molina, who was licensed in Texas in August 1997, violated the proper physician-patient relationship because he prescribed the drugs without having examined the patient, taken a proper history, acquired adequate medical records and performed adequate tests.

Overeem was denied a continuance during his hearing in front of the NSAC and was forced to explain why his pre-fight drug test for UFC 146, for which he is no longer participating in, returned a testosterone-to-epitestosterone (T/E) level of 14:1, well over the cutoff limit of 6:1 under the NSAC guidelines.
