UFC Releases Statement On Latest Fighter’s Failed USADA Drug Test

The UFC has released a statement on the latest fighter to fail a drug test from the U.S Anti-Doping Agency (USADA).

On Thursday, the UFC announced that light heavyweight fighter Nick Roehrick had tested positive for a banned substance.

The UFC broke the news via a statement on their website.

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Nick Roehrick of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on August 8, 2017.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Roehnick. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.

Roehrick has one fight in the UFC. Last month, Roehrick made his UFC debut in a losing effort to Jared Cannonier. On July 7, Cannonier defeated Roehrick by TKO in the third round.
