the american Chris Leben was suspended for nine months by the UFC organization for testing positive for the steroid stanozolol, in an anti-doping test, carried out before UFC-89, which took place in Birmingham, England. As there is no regulated athletic commission in the British city, the tests were carried out by the UFC organization itself. In addition to the gacho, Leben received a fine worth a third of his purse
“I'm obviously disappointed in Chris, who has made great strides in getting his life back on track,” said UFC president Dana White.
All 21 other fighters who participated in the show were tested with negative results.
