Piotr Hallman suffered his second loss under the UFC banner at UFC Fight Night 51 in Brasilia, Brazil, and he will have to wait nine months to get back inside the Octagon.
The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) announced on Monday that the Polish lightweight tested positive for steroid drostanolone following his split decision loss to Gleison Tibau in the co-main event of UFN 51 on Sept. 13.
Hallman, who was awarded the ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus after the three-round bout, will likely lose his $50,000 bonus. He will be suspended nine months, and must undergo a new drug test before being cleared to compete again.
According to the commission, all fighters tested negative in the drug tests, including the four fighters who were randomly tested with both urine and blood exams.
