Dennis Siver fails UFC 168 drug test

UFC 168 seems like forever ago in the world of MMA. Today we are forced to rehash the event due to a failed drug test by Featherweight, Dennis Siver. Siver reportedly tested positive for human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) during a drug test taking during the week of UFC 168 (h/t Fox Sports).

The original test was inconclusive, but the B-sample is what popped Siver for hCG. As with all failed tests, Siver is likely facing a lengthy suspension and fine from the NSAC. His win over Manny Gamburyan will also likely be overturned to a No Contest. There is currently no word as to what suspension Siver will be facing and whether or not it will be retroactive from December.

Siver has been with the UFC for quite some time, spanning three separate divisions. Back in 2007, Siver debuted in the UFC against Welterweight, Jess Liaudin. Ultimately, Siver lost via armbar in the first round. After that bout, Siver dropped down to Lightweight, where he went 8-4 before dropping down to Featherweight.

Since his drop down to Featherweight, Siver has gone 3-1, but his last win over Gamburyan will likely become a no contest. FanSided will keep you updated when any new information about Siver’s suspension or status with the UFC is made available.
