NAC suspends Bevon Lewis six months stemming from failed UFC drug test for marijuana

Bevon Lewis is the latest fighter to be suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission for a positive marijuana test.

At the governing body’s monthly meeting held Wednesday, the NAC suspended Lewis (7-3 MMA, 1-3 UFC) for six months and fined him a total of $1,345.36 ($1,200 fine + $145.36 in legal fees) due to a positive urine test on Nov. 7. Lewis will be eligible to compete again on May 7 should all fines and fees be paid.

The test was conducted the same date as Lewis’ most recent UFC fight – a third-round TKO loss to Trevin Giles. Following the loss, the UFC parted ways with Lewis.

Lewis joins a laundry list of fighters suspended by the NAC for marijuana in the the past year. Niko Price, Kevin Croom, Trevin Jones, Jamahal Hill, Tim Elliott, and Luis Pena were among those suspended by the NAC for positive marijuana tests in 2020.
