    Not sure if there is anything behind this at all but it was brought to my attention by @MookieAlexander, a writer for Bloody Elbow who quoted it on twitter. Could be nothing but just thought I'd let you guys know that there is a rumor going around. Have at it.

    EDIT: Sorry guys, I'm not too up to date on drug testing policies. But for those wondering whether this would have him out of the Holloway fight, it looks like not due to the fact that it's out of competition. Similar to the Jones situation when he tested positive. Thanks to those who explained this in the thread.

    I would think so. Really hoping this one ends up being false. Holloway/Oliveira is a really good fight.

    Will be swept under the carpet until the day after the upcoming fight. Then he'll get suspended.

    Wasn't Jones allowed to fight after getting popped for coke? Who fucking cares if guys test positive for recreational drugs out of competition?

    I mean, who fucking cares if dude Bronx smoked some pot? This better not spoil the event.

    If this is apart of random testing for the Oliveira/Holloway fight then why is this news?

    Weed and other recreational drugs aren't banned out of comp./before and after fight night afaik.

    WHAT??????

    they are testing for weed out of competition? this is so fucked. Who cares if anyone smokes weed. I don't even care if they pump themselves full of steroids outside the week of the fight.

    Didn't even think about that, I hope this situation (if true) is handled in the same way. I don't know too much about drug policies tbh.
