UFC welterweight Hector Lombard, who currently is listed in the top ten of the division, only had one fight in 2014, a win over Jake Shields, and will go on to only fight once this year, as well.
Lombard fought Josh Burkman at UFC 182 in January, and picked up a victory via unanimous decision. ‘Showeather’ failed a post-fight drug test for the designer steroid desoxymethyltestosterone (DMT).
Hector Lombard suspended one year, fined by NSAC for UFC 182 failed drug test
He faced the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) this afternoon, and received a large punishment for his actions. The 37-year old received a one year suspension, and also was stripped of his $53,000 win bonus and was fined 33% of his $53,000 fight purse.
The Cuban native will be out of action until Jan. 3, 2016, when he can resume competing again. Although, he will be required to pass a drug test before fighting again.
His UFC 182 win against Burkman has also been overturned to a no-contest.
