Report: Brian Ortega Fails Post UFC on FOX 12 Drug Test
By FCF Staff
Brian Ortega is the latest UFC fighter to fail his post-fight drug test, as according to multiple reports, he’s tested positive for the steroid drostanolone following his Octagon debut.
Ortega tapped out Mike de la Torre at UFC on FOX 12 last month, but as a result of his test results, the California State Athletic Commission has overturned the result to a no contest. In addition, Ortega has been suspended for nine months and fined $2,500 (according to Sherdog.com).
The 8-0 fighter is the second, former RFA champ to fail a drug test in recent weeks, as Kevin Casey also tested positive for drostanolone following his win over Bubba Bush at UFC 175.
