All fighters on the UFC® STOCKHOLM 2013 card were drug tested at the event and all fighters passed their drug tests with the exception of Robbie Peralta.

Peralta tested positive for marijuana metabolites following his bout. He has agreed to attend drug rehabilitation classes and will receive a 6-month suspension retroactive to the date of the event and must pass a drug test upon completion of the suspension before receiving clearance to compete again.

There will always be a debate on whether marijuana should be legal or not. But the fact is that it is illegal.

I just can't understand why fighters still test positive if they know it will be tested for.

He looked horrible in that fight... Akira Corassani had his way with him.

I will never understand forcing drug rehab classes for marijuana when quitting nicotine is far harder.

I'm fine with the punishment because it is illegal BUT leave it there and don't go with fucking rehab.

If anything get the guy to do a month of community service and more will benefit than having him sit through awful meetings or a program where he will NOT be honest because the main goal is just to get through it and keep his job. Phone Post

This.

 

If you're getting busted by the UFC for weed at this point, you're an idiot.  "YES!  I finally made it to the biggest MMA organization in the world.  The be all, end all.  Let me risk it all by getting high one night."

The cannabis regulations are... mind boggling. It has ZERO impact on sport. They might as well be punishing him for having elevated levels of horse raddish. The people who make these rules need to be kicked right in the balls.

This rule is retarded and needs to be changed ASAP.

If you smoke weed the day of the fight, sure, get suspended. But metabolites meaning you didn't smoke for 2 weeks or more? Fuck that. Ridiculous.

its more of a PR move. A guy in their org is on drugs and fails a test so they send him to rehab to say we tried to help him.

Even if going to rehab for smoking bud is a joke they atleast can say they tried to help him.

confused... wouldnt that also involve a test or do we sequester fighters for 24 hours prior to fight time? Sounds like we would have another rule....

Look these are sick people who need there TRT
They have Dr notes and everything...

If they had Dr notes because smoking weed was there medicine it would be allowed.

Ohhh Wait that's not it.

Maybe high consumption of cheetos make you slippery or something.

training for a fight cuts lots of fat where the metabolites are stored, so they test + when they think they quit long enough out

something like that anyway...
