UFC heavyweight Walt Harris got a four-year suspension due to multiple drug test positives. The suspension is retroactive to the sample date. He can return on July 11, 2027.

The suspension is quite historic as it marks the first given by Combat Sports Anti-Doping (CSAD), since the promotion and USADA split at the beginning of the year.

“Drostanolone and testosterone are anabolic steroids and prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy (UFC ADP) and UFC Prohibited List,” said the statement from CSAD.
