Former UFC fighter Tim Gorman was arrested on multiple drug charges, including possession of 121 pounds of marijuana.

Gorman was arrested Sunday night in Nebraska and is being held on $250,000 bond, according to the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Department. He is being charged with two counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver, and a single count of possession of money during a drug violation.

A Nebraska State Patrol trooper spotted a Chevrolet Traverse traveling eastbound on I-80 around 7 p.m. local time and performed a traffic stop, per a report from NBC affiliate KSNB. During the stop, the trooper “detected clandestine activity” and a K-9 from Kearney Police Department was called upon to perform a search of the vehicle, which lead to an odor of a controlled substance.

Upon further search, troopers located “121 pounds of marijuana, six pounds of THC concentrate, two vials of steroids, a small amount of cocaine, and approximately $14,000 in cash,” the report states.

Gorman was arrested and is being held at Buffalo County Jail in Kearney. He is due back in court June 17.

After a one-fight appearance on season 18 of “The Ultimate Fighter”—a first-round finish of Lee Sandmeier to earn a spot on the show—Gorman was signed to the UFC after being forced out of the competition with a torn hamstring. The Des Moines, Iowa native lost both of his UFC appearances via unanimous decision, including a “Fight of the Night” performance against Thomas Almeida in November 2014.

“The Psycho” would compete professionally one last time for Iowa regional promotion MCC in June 2015 and picked up a second-round submission win.
