Second UFC Fighter In One Day Flagged By UFC Drug Testers

It is not a good day if you are a UFC fighter and are trying to cheat the system.

For the second time on Wednesday, the UFC announced a fighter whose been flagged for a potential doping violation as undefeated heavyweight Justin Ledet was notified of a potential drug test failure.

Here’s the statement the UFC released on

“The UFC organization was formally notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Justin Ledet of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on January 12, 2017.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.

Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”

Ledet (8-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) was scheduled to fight this weekend at UFC Fight Night 104 against Dmitriy Sosnovskiy and the fight was pulled from the card due to the potential violation.

He recently fought in November at UFC Fight Night 99 and defeated Mark Godbeer by submission.

The other violation occurred when Ricardo Abreu was notified of potential violation which is concurrent with a two-year suspension he is already serving.
