UFC 160 is a few weeks behind us, but the drug test results have just become public, and things look bad for one fighter.
Former WEC bantamweight champion, Brian Bowles, returning to the cage for the first time since November 2011, was the only fighter from the May 25 fight card whose post-fight drug test came back with issues.
Bowles, who was TKO’d by George Roop in the second round of their preliminary card bout, came back with a testosterone to epitestosterone ratio of more than 20:1. The acceptable level in the state of Nevada is 6:1.
Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer provided the drug test results to Bleacher Report via email and stated that a complaint against Bowles would be coming shortly.
Bowles had been out between 2011 and 2013 tending to injuries. The loss dropped his career record to 10-3.
Bowles has never failed a drug test in the past. It is likely that he will face a fine and suspension as a result of the failed test.
