As expected would be the case, Dennis Siver has had his win over Manny Gamburyan at UFC 168 overturned and has been suspended for nine months, as a result of failing his post fight drug test.

Siver worked his way to a unanimous decision victory over Gamburyan in December, but tested positive for human chorionic gonadotropin following the bout. Siver has also been fined $19,800 (or 30% of his purse) by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, according to a report from MMA Junkie.com.

After news of his failed drug test surfaced in March, Siver claimed he was unaware that he was taking hCG, and blamed a new training regiment and nutritionist for the incident.

With the NSAC’s decision, Siver’s record stands at 22-8, with 1 no contest.
