And it's beyond insane. Justin Levens failed for Oxymorphone. The cut-off line is 120 ng/mL. He tested at 10,141 ng/mL. That is not a typo.

Did he think he was fighting Fedor or Arlovski?

A little more on this from Junkie: $1000 fine and is suspended until January 15. The drug is a semi-synthetic opioid analgesic often used for the relief of moderate to severe pain. He can appeal, no word on if he will.

As noted above, yes. Until January 15, which means 6 months.

since when is oxymorphone a "Performance Enhancing Drug"

It would do the exact opposite. It would make u sluggish, and if u got KO'd while on it, you would be asleep for a long friggin time.

Kinda weird to take it before a fight...

It's a pain killer. Something that hurts when 100% sober may not hurt so bad when you're all jacked up on it.

Performance enhancing doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be quick/fast. It just means you're trying to gain an edge. Increased pain threshold = performance enhancing.

Actually according to current rules you can fail for performance enhancing or recreational drugs, ther might even be a third category. I think only performance enhansing should be considered. And I think anything illegal in any way is banned. They just run a full blood test (urine, whatever) and look at everything in it.they can tell you to the ng everything i your body.

Justin Levens needs a win BAD! As of right now, he's the worst named fighter out there.
