Charlie Ontiveros has been given a six-month suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission following his UFC debut loss to Kevin Holland in 2020.
Ontiveros’ suspension comes due to a drug test that detected DHCMT M3 metabolites. He was given his suspension on Tuesday as part of a meeting held by the commission, as first reported by Nolan King of MMA Junkie.
Ontiveros will face other sanctions besides his suspension. He will also have to pay a fine of $2,245 and take part in a drug-testing program.
If Ontiveros passes his drug-testing program, he will be eligible to compete in the state again starting on April 30th.
Ontiveros made his UFC debut on short notice in October, fighting Kevin Holland as part of a UFC “Fight Night” card. The fight ended unceremoniously in the first round after a neck injury forced Ontiveros out of the bout.
Ontiveros entered the fight with a pro record of 11 wins and six losses.
