Fighters who fail drug tests for performance enhancing drugs will now be removed from the UFC rankings. In turn, these fighters will also be losing their Reebok sponsorship money as well for being removed from the rankings.

This punishment will only be handed down to fighters who receive a suspension for nine or more months.

Fight Metric informed the media who votes on the fighter rankings earlier this week the news.

Do you think this is a step in the right direction?
