It will be a while before we see Ben Rothwell back inside the Octagon.

The 36-year-old UFC heavyweight accepted a two-year sanction for failed out-of-competition drug tests taken back on Feb. 6 and Feb. 15, 2017, USADA officials announced Friday. Rothwell tested positive for “an anabolic androgenic steroid of exogenous origin” according to the release.

Rothwell explained that the test results were due to his physician prescribing him testosterone, but the USADA determined that did not meet the criteria to obtain a Therapeutic Use Exemption for the prohibited substance.

He will be eligible to compete again on Feb. 6, 2019.
