The UFC has confirmed that both Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman have failed their respective post-fight drug tests administered after UFC 153.
This is not the first failed drug test for either man as Bonnar was popped after the second Forrest Griffin at UFC 62 in August of 2006 for Boldenone. This time around he came up dirty for Drostanolone. Bonnar took the fight against Anderson Silva on short notice and was promptly dispatched in the first round. UFC President Dana White has recently said that Bonnar was going to retire.
Herman also took his fight against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira on short notice and was submitted in the second round which was his third loss in a row. His days were numbered anyway and coming up dirty again for marijuana certainly won’t help his chances. He tested positive before a proposed bout at UFC 136 against Mike Russow which caused the fight to be canceled.
Because Brazil doesn’t have an athletic commission the UFC was responsible for testing its fighters and 22 out of the 24 combatants were clean.
No suspensions have been issued at this time.
