The UFC has suspended Chris Leben for one year due to a failed drug test.

The veteran middleweight tested positive for the prescription painkillers oxycodone and oxymorphone following his UFC 138 main-event loss to Mark Munuz earlier this month.

UFC officials, who oversaw regulation for the overseas event, today announced the suspension.

Well why did he take the painkillers? Injury or something before the fight.

The first time was for steroids.

I feel a little sorry for him. Must be hard to deal with after such a great year in 2010.

Something's up. There was something wrong with him during the fight (other than the weight cut). He had to have hurt his neck, shoulder or something during his camp.

I'll wait to hear more before I judge.

must've been injured in training or something. I think a year for drugs like this is pretty harsh. Honestly even if you're using the things as painkillers for the actual fight, I would have to think that the negative effects of drowsiness/lethargy would far outweigh any kind of painkilling effects.
