Herman’s UFC 162 bout dependent on clean drug test
Dave Herman is scheduled to fight at next Saturday’s UFC 162, but first, in order to do so, he must pass a drug test to be licensed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission:
UFC heavyweight Dave Herman will need to immediately pass a drug test in order to fight at UFC 162, the Nevada state athletic commission ruled during a Friday hearing in the Grant Sawyer State Office Building.
Herman, who is scheduled to fight Gabriel Gonzaga at the July 6 show, faces the condition as part of his licensing requirements for the bout.
Calling Herman’s inclusion on the day’s docket an “out-of-the-ordinary agenda item,” NSAC executive director Keith Kizer noted some of Herman’s past troubles, including legal issues and two drug test failures as a professional athlete.
Herman’s trouble dates back to a postive test for marijuana metabolites before an October 2011 bout scheduled with Mike Russow. Herman again tested positive after his UFC 153 loss to Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
