Louis Gaudinot tested positive for a diuretic following his victory over Phil Harris at UFC Fight Night “Gustafsson vs. Manuwa” on March 8.
As a result, Gaudinot was suspended for six months retroactive to the bout, and his victory over Harris was changed to a no contest. “The Ultimate Fighter 14” alum was not fined.
Sherdog.com confirmed the news with a UFC official on Friday. Yourmma.tv initially reported the results, stating that Gaudinot tested positive for the diuretic hydrochlorothiazide.
Gaudinot made short work of Harris in the Octagon at the O2 Arena in London, submitting his foe with a guillotine choke 1:13 into the opening frame of their flyweight clash. The former Ring of Combat champion now owns just one victory in four promotional appearances, a second-round submission of John Lineker at UFC on Fox 3.
Meanwhile, it appeared that Harris had been released from the UFC when Cage Warriors Fighting Championship announced that he would be appearing on one of its cards shortly after the defeat. Harris would not return to the CWFC cage, however, as the Las Vegas-based organization added him to its Fight Night lineup in Dublin for a matchup with Neil Seery.
