The UFC’s independent drug testing agency does not test for recreational drugs outside of competition. However, recreational drugs including marijuana are tested for in-competition. Alcohol is treated in a similar fashion – you are not tested for alcohol out of competition, but are prohibited from fighting while drunk.

Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs have a cutoff of 50 ng/ML. World Anti-Doping Agency has a threshold of 150 ng/ML. USADA uses 180 ng/ML. UFC fighter Kelvin Gastelum tested positive above that level at UFC Fight Night 106: Belfort vs. Gastelum on March 11 in Fortaleza, Brazil. Gastelum was then removed from a scheduled fight with Anderson Silva at UFC 212 on June 3, 2017 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

If you can't beat a stoned opponent they should get a bonus, it's weed people not steroids!

Now that we know how fucked TRT is, can we overturn TRT Vitor's wins, too?

Nah, can't base law on, you know, scientific fact

I get the whole "rules are rules" thing, but overturning the win is dumb to me.

Chastised for weed? That's so stupid. But others can drive their cars into pregnant lady's vehicles while still intoxicated from the night before, snort coke before fights and Pop PEDs and then granted a title shot once they're back from suspension. Doesn't make a lot of sense.

LOL. He also said "I was OK with the KKK until I found out they smoke pot"

He later said it was a joke. That's only a joke if you hate potheads more than black people.
