Kevin Kasey & Robert Drysdale Fail Post Fight Drug Tests

Two fighters who competed at UFC 175 and the Ultimate Fighter 19 finale both failed there post fight drug tests and are set to face disciplinary action from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Kevin Casey, who defeated Bubba Bush by TKO at UFC 175, tested positive for an anabolic steroid called drostanolone following his win on July 5. Casey was just recently brought back to the UFC after a stint on

Robert Drysdale’s test results showed elevated levels of testosterone and according to Nevada Deputy Attorney General Christopher Eccles confirmed his testosterone to epitestosterone levels were 12 to 1.
The normal amount for the average male is a 1:1 ratio, but Nevada allows for competitors to test as high as 6:1 without going over the legal limit. Drysdale’s test returned double that amount.

The UFC released this statement and suspended both figters.

“The UFC has been notified by the Nevada State Athletic Commission that UFC middleweight Kevin Casey and light heavyweight Robert Drysdale failed drug tests following their fights at UFC 175 and The Ultimate Fighter Finale, respectively,” the statement read. “Casey tested positive for drostanolone and Drysdale was flagged for an elevated testosterone-to-epitestosterone ratio. Both fighters have been temporarily suspended from competition and informed their positive tests violated the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy and Promotional Agreement with Zuffa, LLC. The UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents by our athletes and will support the NSAC’s determination pending a formal hearing at a later date.”
