Following their failed drug tests last month, UFC fighters Robert Drysdale and Kevin Casey have been handed temporary suspensions from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

According to multiple reports, Drysdale has been suspended as a result of testing positive for an elevated testosterone level, following his win over Keith Berish on July 6th.

Casey, meanwhile, has also been suspended after testing positive for drostanolone, following his TKO victory over Bubba Bush on July 5th. Casey has admitted to taking the banned substance and has apologized for his actions.

Both Casey and Drysdale will receive complete disciplinary hearings in the coming weeks. At that time, the fighters could receive specific suspensions, fines and have their victories overturned.
