UFC Drops Lavar Johnson after 9 Month Suspension

Lavar Johnson tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone and epitestosterone following his UFC 157 loss to Brendan Schaub, according to the California State Athletic Commission.  It appeared that even when receiving the benefit of modern medical advances Johnson was still no match for Schuab’s determined takedown advances.

The California State Athletic Commission believed that a 9 month layoff would be adequate punishment for Lavar Johnson but Dana White and the UFC decided they would no longer require the talents of Mr Lavar Johnson.

Johnson could not have had worse timing for this event.  The UFC has recently announced serious cutbacks from its enormous, current roster.  Add that fact to the fact that Lavar Johnson is 2-4 from his last 6 fights and that makes for one very expendable MMA fighter.

Perhaps Lavar will find success in another venue and make his comeback into the UFC but for now we wish him luck at his new endeavors.
