Dave Herman Passes Pre-Fight Drug Test, Cleared to Fight Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 162
passed his mandatory pre-fight drug test and will fight
as expected at UFC
Nevada Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer verified
Herman’s drug test results with Sherdog.com on Tuesday. The
heavyweight was suspended for six months by the UFC after testing
positive for marijuana in October, marking the second time Herman
was flagged for cannabis use. The 28-year-old was required to
undergo treatment and pass the aforementioned 10-panel drug test
before he could return to action.
Herman will face Gabriel
Gonzaga during Saturday night’s FX-broadcast preliminary card,
which immediately precedes the pay-per-view offering. UFC 162 takes
place at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and is headlined by a
middleweight title confrontation between longtime champion Anderson
Silva and unbeaten challenger Chris
An EliteXC, Bellator and Sengoku veteran, Herman made his Octagon
debut in 2011, stopping decorated grappler John Olav
Einemo on second-round strikes at UFC on Fuel TV 1. Three
straight losses would follow for Herman, however, as he was knocked
out by Stefan
Struve and Roy Nelson
before submitting to an Antonio
Rodrigo Nogueira armbar last year at UFC 153.
