Lavar Johnson Out Of UFC After Failed Drug Test


Well, we suppose things like this are bound to happen sooner or later.  To put it simply, according to sources at MMA Junkie, Lavar Johnson has been cut from the UFC after testing positive for anabolic steroid use following his loss to Brendan Schaub at UFC 157.

Lavar had originally failed to disclose he was on TRT therapy, but after the facts being revealed applied for an exception.  Regardless of the exception outcome, the test conclusively showed he was exceeding expected limits with synthetic steroid use.  Thus any claim to an exception would be nullified.

On the upside, it looks like Dana White is keeping to his promise to crack down on Performance Enhancing Drug use in the UFC.  How-ever on the flip side, if everyone who uses is caught and banned, who will be left?

We want to hear from you!
