He was suspended for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. I've forgotten how long he's out for but he should be back this summer.

Edit: I guess I read it wrong. UFC® : Ultimate Fighting Championship® Dana says he supports the "commission’s continuing efforts to keep this sport clean" Been a while sinse I read the article.

Here is another one on the same subject.

MMA WEEKLY - Your #1 Source for Daily MMA News, Interviews, Multimedia, and More


Maybe he won't be back.

Did he ever compete?

Just joking.

That drug thing (testing positive) may have done him in. Not sure what his status is after that. I'm sure that it allows the UFC to dismiss him since it's a violation of his contract.

(Not to rag on PrideFC) Pride might pick him up. He might go the way of Josh Barnett and go over seas and become an even better fighter.

from
Stephan Bonnar - The UFC Fighter

I would like to apologize, and ask the forgiveness, of all my fans...including any MMA fans that may dislike me. About 3/12 weeks out from my Aug 26 fight with Forrest, I took a supplement called Boldione which I purchased legally on the internet in 2004. The supplement I-force Bold (which is exactly the same product) is still widely and legally available on the internet, and in health food stores. However, this supplement is not approved for use by the NSAC, and is therefore prohibited for use by MMA fighters. Unfortunately, the supplement produces the same result in a steroid test as the illegal injectable steroid Boldenone.

I tested negative to any anabolic agents in a second test conducted three weeks after the fight. A quick search will show you that the injectable steroid Boldenone is detectable 5 months after discontinued use. For more details including testimony from a medical expert, my clean test results, and all the other information presented at my hearing please browse my website where I have posted everything for you. I also want my fans to know that I have been previously tested twice by the UFC, including at the finale of the Ultimate Fighter, when I fought Forrest the first time. I have never before tested positive.

This is not an excuse for my actions, but let me explain the reasons for my foolish behavior. I have been suffering from a nagging elbow injury that has been getting progressively worse over my last three fights. I was receiving frequent treatments from a chiropractor, a therapist, as well as performing nightly electro stimulation treatments (on a machine I purchased myself). Hell, I felt like I was doing more therapy than training. Despite all of these attempts, the elbow was getting worse and worse. I refused to pull out of the fight. I did not want to let down the UFC and the fans. I was so desperate to fight, that I decided to start taking the Boldione supplement thinking that it would help heal the damaged tendons and ligaments. To be honest with you, it really didnt do shit. Much to my surprise though, the MRI showed that in addition to there being tears in two of the tendons, a sprained ligament, and cartilage damage.....my large forearm bone (ulna) was broken.(See MRI results).

Im sorry for this stupid decision, and promise never to this mistake again.

Sincerely,
Stephan Bonnar

Stephan hasn't heard yet at which UFC he will be fighting next. They usually make those decisions a between 1-3 months before the fight...but he is eligible to fight again at the very end of May/earlyJune.

He will be at the UFC in Ohio 3/3..and signing autographs at the UFC booth at the Arnold's on the morning of 3/4

Stephan is currently training in Thailand, but he'll be posting regularly when he returns.

Hope that helps,
