Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman admit to taking the banned substances that prompted their failed drug tests at this past month's UFC 153 event.

That's according to the UFC, which recently issued a statement on both fighters.

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported on Friday, Bonnar tested positive for drostanolone, an anabolic steroid, and Herman's test detected marijuana metabolites.

"The UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents," the statement read. "Both fighters have admitted taking the banned substances and have orally agreed to suspensions. Once the suspensions have been reduced to written agreements, the results of their tests and the agreed-upon suspensions will be sent to the Association of Boxing Commissions official record-keeper so other jurisdictions will be on notice."

The length of the suspensions wasn't disclosed.

Damn. Set himself up for failure.

Even a win would have not been a "win"

So if by some way he had won, we'd have to put an asterisk on the Spider's record?

Guys step up and are admired for it, but if that's what it takes to get to the cage, or if that's what happens when you fight your fight, during what would be your 3rd to 4th week of training camp(cycle) typically, then its not worth it. Maybe that's why Bonnar retired abruptly.
