UFC light heavyweight contender Tom Lawlor says he will receive a two-year suspension from USADA after testing positive for banned substances.
“I just got an email from USADA — It was that final paperwork so I’ll probably be suspended for two years soon retroactive to November or October,” Lawler said Tuesday on the F4D podcast.
“I have been through every single emotion. I have been up for hours in the middle of the night, staring off into space, crying, thinking about this whole thing.”
Lawlor denies taking any banned substances ever in his career. He was notified of his potential failed test by USADA on Nov. 3.
Lawlor is coming off a decision loss to Corey Anderson back in March. Overall, Lawlor has six wins in the UFC including a submission win over CB Dollaway, a decision win over former title challenger Patrick Cote, and a knockout win over Gian Villante.
