Dave Herman cleared to compete at UFC 162

Dave Herman cleared to compete at UFC 162

UFC heavyweight Dave Herman assured the Nevada Athletic Commission he was clean when meeting with the regulatory board last week to receive a license for a bout this Saturday night at UFC 162 after recently seeing a suspension for marijuana use expire. In fact, Herman was so confident in his ability to pass a drug test he offered to take an unscheduled one.

The NAC quickly agreed to the condition, saying he could fight this Saturday night but only if he submitted a clean sample first. Now, with results in, it’s clear Herman’s faith in being drug-free was well-placed, as he is officially good to go against Gabriel Gonzaga on Saturday night.

The 21-5 Herman has lost his last three fights and is in a “must win” position as a result. He has been popped twice for smoking pot, meaning he also needs to pass his post-fight drug test if hoping to maintain his spot on the UFC roster.

    Solid job not getting high for the last month or so, Dave!!

  • Dufresne says:

    Am I the only one that thinks it’s pathetic that it’s news that he didn’t test positive? Isn’t that supposed to be the norm?

  • Screenplaya says:

    I am glad this is being reported as it highlights to stupidity of weed being illegal or considered performance-enhancing.

  • AlphaOmega says:

    Really? To me it highlights more the stupidity of fighters still doing weed before a fight when they know for a fact that it’s a banned substance and will get them fined and possibly fired.
