Hill, Elliott and Peña tested positive for cannabis. Winn tested positive for amphetamines.
Hill’s first-round TKO victory over Klidson Abreu on May 30 was overturned to a no contest due to the violation. The 29-year-old undefeated light heavyweight prospect was suspended six months and fined 15% of his fight purse.
Elliott and Peña were each suspended 4½ months and fined 15% of their fight purse. The reduced suspension was due to their fights being taken on short notice. Elliott lost to Brandon Royval on May 30 on 12 days’ notice, and Peña fell to Khama Worthy on June 27 on 18 days’ notice.
Winn was suspended nine months and fined $1,800 in relation to his March 7 loss to Gerald Meerschaert at UFC 248.
All the suspensions are retroactive to the date of the positive test. Cannabis is prohibited under Nevada regulations “in competition,” meaning the period beginning 12 hours before a contest and ending with the postfight drug test.
There were several other actions taken by the NSAC at its monthly meeting Thursday.
Jorge Gonzalez, who is signed to the UFC but has not yet debuted, had a temporary suspension extended following a positive drug test from Aug. 5 for several anabolic steroids, including the metabolites of drostanolone and stanozolol.
