    Ashlee Evans-Smith not only lost her Octagon debut at UFC 181, she has now been temporarily suspended for testing positive for a banned substance.

    Evans-Smith tested positive for the banned diuretic hydrochlorothiazide in drug testing done surrounding her fight with Raquel Pennington at UFC 181 on Dec. 6 in Las Vegas. The Nevada Athletic Commission during Monday's commission meeting formally issued Evans-Smith a temporary suspension pending a full disciplinary hearing.

    Nevada Deputy Attorney General Christopher Eccles said it was his understanding that Evans-Smith was not contesting the issue.

    Her manager, however, previously questioned why his client was being disciplined for testing positive for a diuretic, while UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones wasn't facing any action after testing positive for cocaine in an out-of-competition random drug screen.

    Her manager really isn't the smartest guy, is he?

    She`s in kind of a bad place now. She spurned Invicta to sign with WSOP. Gets picked up by the UFC and gets choked the fuck out in her debut. No sooner has her unconscious face splatted down on the mat and she gets caught with this. Where does she go from here? Where can she go?

    Move back up to 145 and go to Bellator if you can't make the weight with out getting suspended.

    Sounds like something Nick Diaz would say. "He takes flowers and some weird sh*t like that".

    You got it right...it may not directly enhance performance, but using them to cut is highly illegal and in some cases very dangerous. There are several natural diuretics one can use including dandelion root, caffeine or even alcohol. Any of those on the banned list? Anyone?

    She should have just done cocaine. From what I'm reading on here, cocaine really helps your drop a weight class and it's perfectly fine with the UFC.

    You got that right I think every mma fighter who struggles with weight should do cocaine. Maybe if fabrr is on it he can drop to 125 and get a title shot there

    True, but the main reason they're on WADA's general list (rather than specifically for wrestling or other sports with weight classes) is that many of them are masking agents for PEDs.

    Caffeine and alcohol are on the list, but only for monitoring purposes (caffeine) and in very specific sports (alcohol).

    Oh she'll serve the suspension and be back just fine. She dropped 28lbs in 3 weeks for a short notice debut and got caught using a diuretic. She beat up Fallon Fox, her BFF is UFC strawweight champ and she's cute. She'll get another fight in the UFC for sure.
