>Referring to his bout opposite Anderson  Silva in UFC 101, Forrest Griffin told MMA Hour.

“I failed my drug test I think for Xanax.  I had a doctor’s prescription, I was just, I didn’t do it before the fight, I did it the night before, I was nervous and I couldn’t sleep.”


Griffin makes no mention of a suspension period and was seen opposite Tito Ortiz at UFC 106, 3 months later.  Neither t he Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission nor the UFC did not release the failed urinalysis.
