UFC middleweight Kevin Casey has been suspended for one year and fined $5,600 following a positive drug test at UFC 175.

The decision was handed down by the Nevada Athletic Commission on Tuesday. Casey, a former Resurrection Fighting Alliance champion, tested positive for the anabolic steroid drostanolone in a post-fight drug test following his first-round technical knockout victory over Bubba Bush on July 5 in Las Vegas.

Speaking over the phone to the NAC on Tuesday, Casey offered no excuses for the failed test.

“There’s no excuse for my actions. It’s been a great embarrassment for my family, my training camp and the UFC organization,” Casey said. “When my management got the call from the UFC, I knew that I had to get back on weight as soon as possible.”

In addition to the monetary fine and suspension, the NAC also changed Casey’s win over Bush to a no-contest.
