UFC representatives informed MMAWeekly.com of the positive post-fight test, advising that Le will serve a nine-month suspension as a result.

“Due to his positive test result, Le was suspended by the UFC and notified that he violated the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy and Promotional Agreement with Zuffa, LLC. The UFC has a strict, consistent policy against the use of any illegal and/or performance-enhancing drugs, stimulants or masking agents by our athletes. Le will serve a nine-month suspension and, at its conclusion, will need to pass a drug test before competing in the UFC again.”

Le was under scrutiny in the days leading up to his bout with Bisping, fielding questions from reporters about a photo of him looking exceptionally lean for a man his age. In response, the 42-year-old fighter reportedly denied he was taking any performance-enhancing drugs and explained that his physique came strictly from diet and exercise.

In the bout, Le lost via third-round technical knockout after getting overwhelmed by Bisping for a majority of the contest.
