Heavyweight Tim Persey of Irvine, Calif., tested positive for methamphetamine following his stoppage loss to Jonathan Wiezorek last Saturday, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Persey, who was a replacement for Antonio Silva after the Brazilian fell off the FEG-promoted card due to medical concerns stemming from testing done by the California State Athletic Commission, faces a $1,000 fine and a six-month suspension.

Persey has 60 days to appeal the fine and suspension.
