Why was Werdum Suspended?

#1

I miss him. He won 3 out of his last 5 fights and the Reem fight was a robbery. If he was still active the division would be at its peak:

Cormier- champion
Miocic- ex champion
Werdum- ex champion
Velasquez- ex champion
Dos Santos- ex champion
Overeem- beat Werdum (yeah right) and JDS
Ngannou- beat Velasquez and Overeem
Blaydes- future champion who only lost to Ngannou

Division is still pretty good though; I think it was at its best in 2014-2016 when Werdum upset Cain and then Stipe beat him soon after. Can’t forget the battle that was JDS-Miocic in 2014.

Werdum, 41, tested positive for the anabolic steroid trenbolone and its metabolite epitrenbolone in an out-of-competition urine screening conducted on April 25 in advance of his scheduled UFC Moscow fight against Aleksei Oleinik.
