Following his drug test failure with the Nevada State Athletic Commission recently, UFC fighter Kevin Casey took to Twitter to address the situation and apologize for his “irresponsible action.”

Casey tweeted the following on Thursday afternoon:

As noted on MMANews.com on Wednesday, UFC released the following statement regarding the drug test failure of Casey, as well as Robert Drysdale, another UFC fighter who failed a NSAC test for his recent bout.

“The UFC has been notified by the Nevada State Athletic Commission that UFC middleweight Kevin Casey and light heavyweight Robert Drysdale failed drug tests following their fights at UFC 175 and The Ultimate Fighter Finale, respectively. Casey tested positive for drostanolone and Drysdale was flagged for an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio. Both fighters have been temporarily suspended from competition and informed their positive tests violated the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy and Promotional Agreement with Zuffa, LLC. The UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents by our athletes and will support the NSAC’s determination pending a formal hearing at a later date.”
