After failing his post-fight drug test, following a quick victory in his UFC debut this past July, Robert Drysdale has reportedly been suspended for one year.

According to multiple reports, the Nevada State Athletic Commission has handed down the suspension, as well as fined Drysdale $5,280. The fine is 33% of the purse he earned for fighting and winning at the TUF 19 Finale.

Drysdale submitted Keith Berish at the July 6th event, however, afterwards he tested positive for an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio of 12:1.

The victory has been overturned to a no-contest.

The renowned grappler reportedly claimed to the NSAC that his T/E ratio was the result of the testosterone-replacement-therapy he was undergoing two months prior to the bout. Drysdale says he stopped the treatments once he was booked to fight.

The 33 year-old fighter currently holds a record of 6-0 with 1 no contest.
