Another good example of this is Forrest Griffin only recieving a 30 day suspension and paying a small fine when he tested positive after the Silva fight in Pennsylvania. Because of PA laws, they didn't disclose the suspension and it was only made open because Forrest himself made it so.
what did he test positive for

I am wondering the rational behind taking wins away. It seems random.

The only reason it seems random is because sometimes it's the UFC that decides what happens after a positive drug test and other times it's the athletic commission. It all depends on if the fight took place in the U.S. or in an other country.

Cause everyone is okay with Brandon Vera losing. In fact, it's better off this way.

So a 'proper' commission made the call to let him keep the win after pissing hot?

Sounds a bit backwards to me.

I'm surprised that UFC is doing a much better job at commissioning than most ACs.
