What was originally thought to be a standard, injury-related withdrawal had a bit of intrigue thrown into the mix earlier today when Dave Herman revealed he had been pulled from a UFC 136 bout against Mike Russow after testing positive for marijuana use.

However, “Pee Wee” also defended himself saying he doesn’t smoke weed and explained that the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation had originally told him they’d lost his sample only for it to mysteriously reappear with traces of THC.

“I went in to get my drug test and a week later they called and said they lost my urine specimen and I had to come in and redo it. That was last week and I went back in that day. Then today they said I failed. I’m like, uh, that’s impossible,” the 26-year old stated on ClinchGear Radio.

“It’s disappointing,” he continued. “I’ve been training really hard, and I feel like I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in for a fight, but stuff happens. Maybe it’s for the best, (to) give me some more time to get even better and give an even better show in my next fight.

No official word has surfaced from the UFC on how they plan to handle the situation. In the past similar incidents have been handled internally by Zuffa while respecting the standard six-month (or longer) suspension doled out by athletic commissions.

Herman is 21-2 with twenty finishes including fifteen TKOs and five submissions. He is 1-0 in the UFC with a second stanza stoppage of Jon Olav Einemo at UFC 131.

“Pee Wee” Herman Doesn’t Think BJJ Works in MMA

UFC 136 takes place next weekend and features Frank Edgar defending his lightweight title against rival Gray Maynard as well as Jose Aldo putting his belt on the line against longtime UFC veteran Ken Florian. Herman vs. Russow was replaced on the main card by a rematch between 145ers Nam Phan and Leonard Garcia.
