Konstantin Erokhin did not have the kind of experience with the UFC that he was looking for.
The heavyweight, who entered the promotion 9-1, lost both of his fights and was released after a decision loss to Gabriel Gonzaga last December. Now, he’s also been suspended due to popping for a banned substance.
The Nevada Athletic Commission will hear Erokhin’s case on Tuesday, but he was found to have the steroid drostanolone in his system, according to MMAjunkie.com.
The UFC held three events in December in Las Vegas, and Erokhin is the only fighter to test positive for a banned substance. Among those who also competed were UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, former champion Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar and Chad Mendes.
