Following failing a drug test, and second in nine months, Robert Drysdale was suspended by the NSAC and now released from the UFC roster:

Two strikes and Robert Drysdale is out.

A decorated jiu-jitsu wizard, Drysdale was released from the UFC after a positive drug test result following his first-round submission victory over Keith Berish at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale on July 6, UFC president Dana White announced today in a post-fight media scrum in Macau, China.

My guess is he will get 1-2 wins in a smaller org like Titan and be back in the UFC Phone Post 3.0

nah i don't watch other sports but i think other mainstream sports give second chances after a fine and suspension from the first failed test. same with the ufc but i do agree on banning them for failing a second test. drysdale is a POS for stepping in the cage and not having a problem with cheating for a second time.

I dont know how anyone trains under that guy. If I were his student I would have no respect for him right about now.

About an hr ago it was confirmed he hadn't been released yet so Dana was wrong when he said he thought he was cut. Not to say it may have not changed in the last hour though Phone Post 3.0

If they ban everyone on first failure eventually there wont be any failures. Risk too high Phone Post 3.0

I been to 2 of his seminars and they were hands down the best I've been to.

he spent the mornings doing bjj stuff and afternoon MMA stuff


He was also one of the nicest guys around and the seminar even had the option to go eat lunch with him..

well thats my 2 cents I'm guessing he would have won the belt in UFC they should give him another chance imo.


This whole juice whining is getting retarded (get in there and fight or drop a weight class)

They should be cut. Ortega was making his debut and Casey was making a return. The UFC should cut ties now before spending any more time, money, or energy on these two. Phone Post 3.0

he'll win in smaller organizations and be brought back as long as he can stay clean (aka cycle correctly).

You're drunk. You've been here a while and know that I am not the biggest fan of Brazilians, but Drysdale is a legit beast. It may have taken him a few years to make the transition, but he had the potential to be scary.

Completely agree with this statement. Great guy, extremely hard worker, but you have to face the music when you fuck up. If he wants it, I hope he does it the right way and comes back better than ever.

Come on, Robert. Your work ethic, skill, build, etc. is enough. Quit cutting corners with that bullshit.
