UFC fighter Chase Sherman has taken a nine-month suspension following a violation of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency released a statement on Tuesday that said Sherman tested positive for anastrozole, a substance that is prohibited in the program.
Since his test was taken in May, Sherman’s suspension has now completed five of its nine months. Sherman will be eligible to compete again on February 13th at the soonest.
Sherman made his return to the UFC in May, defeating Ike Villanueva in the second round with punches.
The fight was Sherman’s first in the UFC following a stint in regional MMA promotion “Island Fights” and bare knuckle boxing promotion BKFC.
