What’s the deal?
According to mmafighting.com, Marc Ratner, the UFC's VP of regulatory affairs, has stated that Stephan Bonnar will be suspended until Oct. 13th, 2013. This is due to testing positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone following his UFC 153 loss to Anderson Silva last month.
Ratner added that he has yet to determine what kind of suspension Dave Herman will receive, but says that will be determined this week. He also added the following on the test failures…
"We feel very strongly that there's a big difference between PED's [performance-enhancing drugs] and marijuana. We think the commissions do a good job with PEDs, but we think with marijuana there should be some form of rehab involved, going through that kind of process and learning about it. Other sports have a difference between PEDs and recreational drugs."
