Francisco Trevino Tested Positive For Marijuana After Loss To Sage Northcutt

It’s fair to say that UFC 192 turned out to be a low point in Francisco Trevino’s MMA career for an ever-increasing number of reasons with a failed drug test now being added to his list of woes.

Paired up against the much-talked about 19 year-old newcomer Sage Northcutt, the 33 year old Trevino was looking to improve his own 1-1 record in the UFC, but got off to a bad start when he failed to make weight for the fight, coming in four pounds overweight which led to him being fined 20% off his purse.

Things didn’t get any better for him the following evening with Northcutt running straight through him, delivering a TKO finish in just 57 seconds.

To make matters worse, it’s now emerged that Trevino tested positive for marijuana after the fight and he’s now been handed a 90 day suspension from the sport and faces up to a $5,000 fine.

The only bright side for Trevino in all this is that he has escaped punishment for a post-fight shove of Herb Dean, with the referee indicating he had no interest in taking the matter any further. As bad as things are for him right now, Trevino will be breathing a sigh of relief about that as last year Jason High was released from his UFC contract following a similar incident.
