Robert Drysdale is the latest UFC fighter who has been suspended and fined, after failing his post fight drug test this past summer.
If you recall, Drysdale plowed through Keith Berish at the TUF 19 Finale in July, by tapping out the light-heavyweight in the first round. The renowned grappler tested positive for an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio after the fight, however, and now, three months later, Drysdale’s been disciplined.
According to multiple reports, Drysdale has been suspended for one year by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and fined 33% of his purse, which amounts to $5,280. The win has also been overturned to a no contest, so Drysdale’s record stands at 6-0, with 1 NC.
The fighter reportedly informed the NSAC that he was undergoing testosterone-replacement-therapy up until two months out from the fight. TRT was banned by Nevada earlier this year.
Drysdale was also pulled from a fight in 2013 when he reportedly tested positive for an elevated T/E ratio.
