Winn also received an $1,800 fine and will have to pay court costs and provide clean drug tests prior to getting another license in the state, the NAC voted unanimously during a meeting on Thursday in Las Vegas.
According to the attorney representing the NAC, Winn admitted to violating the rules before agreeing to a settlement with the commission. First-time drug offenders can receive a minimum nine months and maximum of two years suspension.
Winn was submitted by Gerald Meerschaert on the preliminary card of the March 7 pay-per-view event at T-Mobile Arena. His suspension is retroactive to the event, meaning he’ll be eligible to fight again on Dec. 7.
Winn was one of several UFC fighters who appeared before the commission on Thursday to address pending suspensions. A trio of fighters also received reduced suspensions for marijuana positives prior to fights.
