Dave ‘PeeWee’ Herman has been removed from the UFC 136 fight with Mike Russow due to what appears to be a failed drug test. In a recent statement on Clinch Gear Radio Herman claims that he failed the test thanks to Marijuana and steroids, but in an unexpected inducing statement he vehemently denies smoking the marijuana. I can visualize the shock and awe oozing out of all of your faces right now.
“Basically, I failed my drug test. I went in to get in my drug test (on Sept. 15), and a week later, they called me and told me they lost my urine specimen. I had to come in and redo it. That was last week. I went back in that day. And [on Wednesday], they told me I failed. I said, ‘That’s impossible.’
“Texas said they never lost it and the first one [tested positive] for drugs and the second was for steroids. I don’t even smoke. I haven’t even had a beer in two months.”
Look we all believe that Micheal Jackson was not doing Billie Jean and she was not his lover, so it might be possible for us to believe Dave Herman was not doing Mary Jane. Then again it’s easy to question the sobriety of anyone willing to publicly wear a shirt like the one above, go by the nickname of PeeWee and endure the speculation as to what the meaning behind that nickname really is. The UFC still has not released an official statement as to the reason behind Herman’s removal from the fight with Russow, nor have they announced a replacement for the October 8th fight. [source]
