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.

Dudes should just give it up until their career is over or until its allowed. Just not worth it to get caught.

We can't have him smoking within a few weeks of his fight, it could enhance his performance and turn him into a fighting machine!

Hey, the rules say don't test positive for X. Whether it's right or wrong isn't relevant yet. Phone Post

The fact that fighters don't know how much time they need to clean their system seems kind of bush league to me. They should KNOW and even then be conservative about cutting it fine. Phone Post 3.0

The UFC should have just cut him useless addition to the roster. On top of that he's a repeat offender. Give the shot to someone who appreciates the fact there in the best MMA organization in the world. Phone Post

The HW division is pretty thin. They could use as many bodies as possible IMO. Phone Post 3.0

If he tests positive again he's an idiot, I like Herman I hope he's smart enough to not fuck this up!

Isn't it 150 since the NSAC let up a few months ago along with the UFC? Phone Post
I thought it was only for international cards when the UFC is self regulating or am I mistaken? Phone Post 3.0
