UFC bantamweight Sean O’Malley has failed a drug test. Now the talented competitor is set to face the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) over the matter.
O’Malley recently revealed that he has failed an out-of-competition drug test for the banned substance ostarine. The fighter is now set to face a disciplinary hearing with NSAC on Nov. 14 concerning the failed drug test.
Speaking on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show, Sean O’Malley recently offered his thoughts on the situation.
“I am getting punished for something I didn’t do intentionally. I’m really hoping it’s these caffeine pills I took. I didn’t think anything of it. Obviously the ingredients on the caffeine pills are all USADA-approved, but what wasn’t in the ingredients is what I popped for, so it sucks.”
The fighter could face up to a two-year suspension from USADA for the failed drug test.
