Dave Herman out due to failed drug test

source: mmajunkie.com
 

Wednesday, UFC officials announced that a heavyweight bout between Herman and Mike Russow had been pulled from the Oct. 8 UFC 136 card.

Herman subsequently told Clinch Gear Radio that a failed drug test due to marijuana is to blame.

"Basically, I failed my drug test," said Herman. "I went in to get in my drug test (on Sept. 15), and a week later, they called me and told me they lost my urine specimen. I had to come in and redo it. That was last week. I went back in that day. And they told me I failed."

Herman denies usage. "I said, 'That's impossible .. I don't even smoke. ... I haven't even had a beer in two months."

Herman said he's getting conflicting stories from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, the state body regulating the event, which takes place at Houston's Toyota Center. Now, Herman said, they're claiming the first sample wasn't lost.
