Tim Elliott
and Jamahal
Hill
have tested positive for marijuana in relation to their
bouts at UFC on ESPN 9 on May 30, according to a report from

ESPN
.

Both fighters tested positive in-competition and are currently
under temporary suspension from the Nevada State Athletic
Commission. Those sanctions are expected to be extended at a
meeting on Wednesday until a disciplinary hearing can be held at a
future date.

According to both NSAC and USADA regulations, marijuana is
prohibited in-competition over a threshold of 150ng/ml. It is
unclear if USADA will sanction Elliott or Hill.

Elliott suffered a second-round submission loss to Brandon
Royval
at UFC on ESPN 9 but also competed more recently,
earning a unanimous verdict over Ryan Benoit
at UFC on ESPN 13 in Abu Dhabi.

Hill, meanwhile, improved to 8-0 in his burgeoning professional
career with a first-round TKO of Klidson
Abreu
at UFC on ESPN 9.

Two other fighters, Luis Pena and
Marc-Andre
Barriault
, are also facing extensions of their temporary
suspensions at Wednesday’s NSAC meeting. The reason for those
suspensions are currently unknown.
