BUSTED! 3 UFC Fighters Fined After Testing Positive For Cannabis

The Ultimate Fighting Championship signed a deal with the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) to help clean the sport of mixed martial arts and rid the octagon of performance enhancing drugs. Fighters who are on the active UFC roster are subjected to random drug tests, and the majority of publicly known drug test failures are due to the testing of USADA. However, three fighters have been flagged for drug tests by the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation following “UFC Fight Night 104”.

Niko Price, Curtis Blaydes and Abel Trujillo have all tested positive for marijuana, MMA Fighting reports. All three fighters have been slapped with a ninety-day suspension as well as a $1,000 fine.
