Leben Suspended for Nine Months after Failing Drug Test at UFC® 89 LAS VEGAS, The
owner of the UFC today released information stating that middleweight
fighter Chris Leben tested positive for the anabolic agent stanozolol
following his October 18th loss to Michael Bisping in the main event of
UFC 89 in Birmingham, England.As a result of the positive test,
Leben will be suspended from fighting for nine months and must forfeit
one-third of his fight purse.“I am obviously disappointed with
Chris, who has made great strides getting his life back on track,” said
UFC President Dana White. “To his credit, he has taken responsibility
for his actions and is accepting the punishment that has been handed
down. But as always, the UFC puts the safety of its athletes first and
foremost, and we won’t tolerate anyone using performance enhancing
drugs in our organization.”Leben said, “I’ve really done
everything I can to turn my life around, and this is a huge setback for
me, but it is something I will have to deal with. During my time off
from fighting, I want to speak to kids about the dangers of using
performance enhancing agents and let them know it just doesn’t get you
ahead in life. Of course this is a hard hit for me monetarily, but more
so this is embarrassing for me and for all of my fans. I apologize to
the UFC and everyone who supported me in my fight in England. I hope to
work through this and get back to fighting soon.”The remaining 21 fighters on the UFC 89 card all passed their pre and post fight drug tests.
