Two-time UFC veteran Tim Gorman was arrested in Nebraska on Sunday night while in possession of 121 pounds of marijuana and other narcotics, according to a report form 6 News Omaha.

Gorman has been charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession with intent to deliver and possession of money during a drug violation. According to the Buffalo County (Neb.) Sheriff’s Office, Gorman is being held on $250,000 bond. His court date is scheduled for June 17.

According to a statement from the Nebraska State Patrol, a trooper saw a vehicle driving on the shoulder of the interstate near Kearney on Sunday. The officer detected “clandestine activity,” and a K-9 unit detected the presence of multiple controlled substances. In addition to 121 pounds of marijuana, Gorman had six pounds of THC concentrate, two vials of steroids, a small amount of cocaine and $14,000 cash.

A native of Des Moines, Iowa, the 37-year-old Gorman compiled a 9-4 professional MMA record while competing primarily as a bantamweight. He had a two-bout stint with the UFC in 2014, losing unanimous decisions against Mitch Gagnon and Thomas Almeida. He last competed Midwest Cage Championship 59 on June 19, 2015, when he defeated Justin Morrison via second-round submission.
