Brendan Schaub Glad Lavar Johnson Was Drug Tested

Brendan Schaub knew before Lavar Johnson even hit the scales at UFC 157 that something wasn’t right. Johnson would be flagged after the fight for elevated testosterone.

“When I saw him arrive at the hotel on Tuesday, he was jacked,” said Schaub on The MMA Hour. “And I said something to my coaches like ‘Well, hopefully they test this dude.’ Everyone was like, ‘Yeah, he’s pretty big.’ So, I assumed it. I assumed he was doing something when you look like that.”

Johnson was released following the decision loss to Schaub. He went 2-2 for the promotion, losing a pair in the end.

Schaub now takes on former cast member of The Ultimate Fighter Matt Mitrione. That’s at UFC on FOX 8 from the KeyArena in Seattle, WA on July 27.
