Dave Herman was pulled from next weekend’s UFC 136 card in Houston, TX, yesterday and most speculated it was because of an unspecified injury suffered in training camp. Herman cleared the air on Clinch Gear Radio and cleared the air: it was a failed drug test for Marijuana.
I went in to give my drug test, right? And a week later they called me and said they lost my urine speciman and I had to come in and re-do it. That was last week. Like, I went back in that day and today they said I failed. And I said ‘uh, that’s impossible.’
It was September 15, I went in and took the first test. And then a week later they e-mailed me and called me and said they lost the sample and I had to come in and do it again. So I went in to do it again that day and then today they just got the results I guess.
But then I called because I’ve been trying to figure this out. I was like how did they lose it? What happened? I don’t know. But then Texas said that they never lost it and said that they never lost it and the first test was for drugs and the second was steroids.
They didn’t say I had performance enhancing drugs, they said I had marijuana. And I don’t even smoke, so yeah. Although I think the Diaz brothers do claim it is performance enhancing somehow.
