James Irvin Tests Positive For Methadone and Oxymorphone

The Nevada State Athletic Commission revealed today that UFC light heavyweight James Irvin tested positive for Methadone and Oxymorphone; both drugs are administered primarily for the relief of pain with Methadone also used to combat addiction.

Since neither drug is approved by the commission, Irvin now faces a likely fine and suspension. He will have twenty days to dispute the commissions findings.

The NSAC also reported that all other fighters from Ultimate Fight Night: Silva vs. Irvin, came back clean.
