NSAC Issues Temporary Suspensions To UFC Fighters Drysdale, Casey

0

The Nevada State Athletic Commission issued temporary suspensions to UFC fighters Robert Drysdale and Kevin Casey on Thursday after the two failed post-fight drug tests in Las Vegas in July.

Drysdale, for the second time in his UFC career, tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone after his victory over Keith Berish at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale on July 6th in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, Casey tested positive for anabolic steroid drostanolone after his victory over Bubba Bush at UFC 175.

“I apologize to UFC and the NSAC for my irresponsible action,” Casey stated following the failed test. “I made a bad decision trying to cut weight. We are competing in a cleaner sport.”

Both Drysdale and Casey are expected to receive full disciplinary hearings at the next meeting of NSAC officials, wheere both are likely to incur suspensions and fines, in addition to their wins being overturned into “no contests.”
