13-Lavar-Johnson-UFC-146-weighThe California State Athletic Commission earlier this week confirmed that Lavar Johnson’s drug test result following UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche returned results for an elevated ratio of testosterone to epitestosterone.

Johnson received a nine-month suspension from the CSAC and was subsequently released from his contract by the UFC, according to MMAWeekly.com sources confirming an earlier report by MMAJunkie.com.

Going 2-2 during his UFC run, and just 2-4 over his last six fights, made Johnson an expendable fighter on a bloated roster that UFC president Dana White has said is being aggressively pruned.

Johnson lost a three-round unanimous decision to Brendan Schaub at UFC 157, when he was unable to stop Schuab’s relentless takedown attack.
