UFC Responds To Tyson Griffin's Positive Marijuana Testing
“The Michigan Commission found traces of a banned substance in Mr Griffin’s post-fight urine analysis following his bout at UFC 123. The Commission fined and suspended Mr Griffin, but did not make this information public.
“As always the UFC followed the directive of the sanctioning Commission. Mr Griffin did not compete in the UFC again until after his suspension had ended.”
Today the same source who uncovered this original story (bloodyelbow.com) received a response from UFC executive director of regulatory affairs, Marc Ratner explaining the situation.
While no one knew of the failed screening it does appear as if Griffin did get suspended and was in fact fined as well, but one can now assume that due to Michigan state law this information was left confidential.
