Last month's UFC 153 event took place in Brazil, where there are millions of passionate MMA fans, but not athletic commission. Regulatory duties were handled by former Executive Director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission and current UFC Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Marc Ratner.

All 24 fighters on the card were tested by an independent agency, for both recreational and performance enhancing drugs. Two failed the screen: Stephan Bonnar, who tested positive for the anabolic steroid Drostanolone, and Dave Herman, for marijuana metabolites.

Both fighters admitted to taking the banned substances and agreed to suspensions.

Ratner now reports Bonnar will be suspended a year, until Oct. 13, 2013.

Ratner expects to make a decision on Herman's suspension later this week. Although this is the second failed test for both Herman and Bonnar, Herman's suspension is expected to be less drastic, a matter of months, combined with an education and rehab program.

"We feel very strongly that there's a big difference between PEDs and marijuana," said Ratner. "We think the commissions do a good job with PEDs, but we think with marijuana there should be some form of rehab involved, going through that kind of process and learning about it."

They really need to change the rules in regards to marijuana... That is just a completely different animal all together.

I am really disappointed to see this happen Bonnar. The loss is fine, but hate seeing him go out like that..

Not sure if that will happen here. Fighters don't have to pay any fine until they re-apply for a license when they're suspension is up.

So with no ac to levy a fine against him and with bonnar retired and likely already receiving his pay I'm not sure how any fine could be applied. Phone Post

Man, that's terrible.  I've seen so many families torn apart like that.
