Dennis Siver tests positive for prohibited drug

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Following UFC 168 it was reported that two fighters had inconclusive results, than required further testing.

MMAFighting's Mike Chiappetta reports via Twitter that Siyar Bahadurzada's B-sample came back negative, so he is clear.

However, that is not the case with the second fighter.

UFC 168's Denis Siver has been flagged for hCG, NSAC in process of issuing temp suspension pending hearing.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is increasingly used in combination with various anabolic androgenic steroid cycles. As a consequence, HCG is included in in the list of drugs the Nevada athletic commission tests for.

In all likelihood, Silver win over Manny Gamburyan will be changed to a No Contest, and his previous wins will fall under a cloud of suspicion.
