Stephan Bonnar and Dave Herman failed their drug tests following their respective bouts at UFC 153 on Oct. 13 in Brazil. Now, each has been handed down his suspension by UFC officials.

Since Brazil does not have a sanctioning body to oversee mixed martial arts, the UFC policed itself at UFC 153, hiring a third party company to administer drug testing. UFC 153 was held at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

Herman – who test positive for marijuana – did not receive his suspension until Thursday.

Herman has been suspended for “six months from the day of the fight and must undergo and participate in an approved rehabilitation program, and have a clean drug test when the suspension is over, UFC vice president of regulatory affairs Marc Ratner told MMAWeekly.com.

While the UFC is forced to police itself in jurisdictions without a commission, such as Brazil, they did take Herman’s case a step further than most athletic commissions. Most commissions would likely have suspended Herman, but not necessarily added the requirement that he attend an approved rehab program.

Herman will be eligible to return from suspension, granted he meets all of the necessary requirements, on April 13, 2013.

Imo that's a little dumb

Rehab is for addicts. I highly highly doubt he is an addict. And before the naysayers start harping. When I say addicts I mean hard drug users. The fact that there are virtually nonexistent withdrawal symptoms is directing my original comment about this being a little over the top

If everyone who toked had to go to rehab, the health care system would be worse off than it is already.

yeah . also even though its "legal" companies could still make it illegal to have in your system while working for them. just like you can't go to work drunk well same applies to weed. all I'm saying is that drug tests are not going to go away just because its legal


ive vaped on my lunch break though and enjoyed the rest of my day at work
