BJJ-heads have been waiting for Robert Drysdale to make his UFC debut for quite a while now, but it looks like things are just not lining up for Drysdale just yet. Robert Drysdale’s promotional debut was postponed originally due to an issue with him requesting a TUE, now this time while he was applying for a license he tested for elevated testosterone levels. It looks like Robert Drysdale’s testosterone levels are well above what they should be, which will deny him a license for the time being. He has not been suspended or fined, he just has been denied a license.
Drysdale (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), who was scheduled to meet light heavyweight Cody Donovan (8-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) in the Nov. 16 event’s first preliminary-card bout, was flagged with a 19.4-1 T/E ratio, which is more than three times the NSAC’s 6-1 limit. He tested negative for a variety of steroids.
NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer today confirmed the abnormal result with MMAjunkie.com and added that as of yet, Drysdale is not suspended or fined as the result of the failed test.
