Dave Herman Enlists In Drug Rehab Following Marijuana Positive Test and Subsequent 6 Month Suspension | UFC News

The UFC has suspended the heavyweight fighter for six months. Additionally, Herman has agreed to participate in an approved drug-rehabilitation program. In addition to the suspension and rehabilitation program, Herman must have a clean drug test in order to fight once his suspension ends.

UFC administered its own drug testing for UFC 153 at Rio de Janeiro’s HSBC Arena on Oct. 13. Along with Herman’s positive test, main-event light heavyweight Stephan Bonnar tested positive for a banned steroid following his loss to Anderson Silva.

Bonnar announced his retirement three days prior to news of his positive test and was consequently suspended for one year.

Herman failed a drug test for the second time in his UFC career just like Bonnar. The remaining 22 fighters on the card all had their tests come back clean.

    lmao rehab for weed that’s ridiculous. There’s nothing wrong with weed, deal with it : )

  5. Xaninho says:

    rehab for weed…What about alcohol? Are fighters even tested for alcohol? And no rehab for roiders? Once a roider stops roiding he/she falls into a pit because he/she can’t train like before so if anyone needs help with life after getting caught it’s a roider.

    Fucking athletic commissions are corrupt and hypocrites.
