According to MMAjunkie.com, CSAC Executive Director Andy Foster has confirmed that UFC featherweight Brian Ortega tested positive for the steroid drostanolone following his UFC on FOX 12 victory. Everyone else's tests came back clean. The commission conducted urine tests of all fighters after their respective bouts.
Ortega has been suspended nine months, fined $2500, and his win has been overturned to a no-contest. Ortega is linked to the same gym that UFC fighter Kevin Casey fights out of. Casey also failed a drug test for drostanolone following his victory at UFC 175.
