Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Breaking: Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman Fail UFC 153 Drug Tests

(…but damn, did he look good doing it.)

As first reported by MMAJunkie, Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman both tested positive for banned substances in their UFC 153 post-fight drug screenings. With no athletic commission in place in Brazil, the UFC independently tested all 24 fighters who competed at the October 13th card at Rio de Janeiro’s HSBC Arena — and unfortunately nailed a pair of repeat offenders.

Bonnar, who announced his retirement from MMA earlier this week, tested positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone following his TKO loss to Anderson Silva in UFC 153′s main event. It is the second steroid bust for Bonnar, who was suspended for nine months after popping positive for Boldenone in 2006. Now that Bonnar is retired from the sport, a suspension won’t be much of a punishment, though it certainly puts a black mark on the end of a crowd-pleasing career inside the Octagon. (Conspiracy theory time: Bonnar knew he’d be retiring after the Silva fight, and he simply didn’t give a fuck.)

As for the one they call Pee Wee…

Dave Herman was flagged for marijuana metabolites following his loss to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. Last year, Herman was pulled from a scheduled bout with Mike Russow due to a positive test result for marijuana. Herman denied using the sweet leaf at the time, but in light of this second positive test, it’s probably safe to assume that he’s a pothead. And since the loss to Big Nog was Herman’s third straight in the promotion, he was probably heading out the door anyway.

UFC exec Marc Ratner said that punishments for the fighters will be issued sometime next week.

Herman's gameplan makes a lot more sense in light of this.

In Bonnar's defense, he probably didn't take the steroids to prepare for the fight, but rather to prepare to stay with his wife during the birth of their son.

Where can I get a giant cardboard enlargement of that Bonnar photo so I can cut the face out and set it up down on the promenade to take young folks' photos for three bucks a pop?

Does this mean their losses will get overturned to wins?

You know, I used to think that Dave Herman drank horse sperm; now, I think he's a pretty chill dude.

Bonnar's punishment: Dana will publicly slap him on the wrist, and then giggle "Did you think it would really give you a chance anyway?"

Dave "THC Pee " Herman busted trafficing hot piss. Well maybe you'll find greener pastures in whatever promotion picks you up. Isn't M1 is based out of Amsterdam?

Judging by the way he fought that night, I'm surprised Herman didn't test positive for Special K.
