The UFC’s parent company, Zuffa LLC, has released an official statement regarding the recent reports that fighters Dave Herman and Stephan Bonnar tested positive for banned substances following UFC 153. There has been no reports on how long the suspensions will be at this time. The suspension will matter little to Bonnar however, as he recently announced his retirement from MMA.
“Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman tested positive for banned substances following their bouts at UFC 153. The UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents. Both fighters have admitted taking the banned substances and have orally agreed to suspensions. Once the suspensions have been reduced to written agreements, the results of their tests and the agreed upon suspensions will be sent to the Association of Boxing Commissions official record-keeper so other jurisdictions will be on notice.”
