Dave Herman won’t be fighting at UFC 136 next weekend because he was denied a license by the state of Texas.

Susan Stanford of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations told MMAWeekly.com on Thursday that Herman was denied a license by the state, but doesn’t face a suspension from the commission.

The details as released by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations will be sparse due to strict laws within the state regarding medical records and drug testing results. Their official stance is that he was denied a license.

As Herman himself revealed on Wednesday, the reason for his removal was because his drug test came back positive for marijuana. The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations thus did not issue him a license for the upcoming fight.

With no suspension forthcoming, Herman is still free to submit an application for a fight licence with Texas or any other commission.

    Marijuana is the newest performance enhancing drug!

    Good work Texas! Who knows what could have happened if you let a pot head in the ring.

  • That is an odd policy. I get the medical records part, not releasing info on drug tests makes no sense to me though.
