On Monday, the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) announced Piotr Hallmann (pictured) tested positive for the steroid drostanolone following last month’s split decision defeat to Gleison Tibau at UFC Fight Night 51.
The lightweight has been suspended nine months, retroactive to his September 13 fight date, for his flunked drug test.
“The athlete Piotr tested positive for the presence of the anabolic steroid drostanolone,” CABMMA expressed in a statement. “He will be suspended for nine months, retroactive to the date of the fight. In order to regain a professional fighter’s license with CABMMA, the athlete will need to pass new anti-doping control tests.”
The CABMMA noted that all drug screenings were processed by laboratories accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
Hallmann has won just half of his four fights in the UFC since joining the promotion in September 2013.
