Drysdale will fight in the UFC despite failed test

Monday, November 04, 2013

World class Jiu-Jitsu player Robert Drysdale was expected to make his Octagon debut at UFC 167. That was before he failed a Nevada test for an elevated T/E ratio, making him inelligible for the event. At the point many suspected that Drysdale would now never make it to the UFC, however that does not seem to be the case:

Robert Drysdale remains under contract with the UFC and will not face any disciplinary action from the promotion despite a recent drug-testing snag.

A UFC representative today told MMAjunkie.com that the decorated jiu-jitsu player will one day compete inside the octagon.

“Obviously, Robert needs to establish that he is medically fit to participate and apply for the appropriate licensure,” the rep wrote in a prepared statement. “Assuming he is able to do this, he will fight for the organization at some point in the future.”
