UFC heavyweight Walt Harris will be sidelined for the foreseeable future.
The Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) on Tuesday handed Harris a one-year suspension for his recent positive drug screening for drostanolone, an illegal anabolic agent. Harris tested positive for drostanolone in a June 24 out-of-competition drug test prior to his scheduled bout against Josh Parisian on July 15, which was ultimately cancelled.
Harris’ suspension is retroactive to the date of the failed test, meaning he is eligible to return to competition on June 24, 2024. He must also pay $392.60 in attorney fees and is required to undergo additional drug testing 30, 15, and three days out from his next bout.
