TUF Winner Jesse Taylor Latest UFC Fighter To Be Flagged For Doping Violation

The latest winner of The Ultimate Fighter has been flagged by the U.S Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for a potential anti-doping violation.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that USADA had informed Jesse Taylor of a potential failed drug test.

Taylor’s failed drug test came from an out-of-competition sample taken on Aug. 22.

Taylor was scheduled to fight Belal Muhammad at a UFC Fight Night event in Australia on Nov. 18. However, with Taylor being flagged by USADA, the UFC has removed him from the card. The UFC is currently seeking a replacement to fight Muhammad in Sydney.

Taylor made his return to the UFC during the last season of TUF, which featured former UFC fighters fighting for an opportunity to get back into the UFC. In July, Taylor won the tournament by submitting Dhiego Lima at The Ultimate Fighter Finale.
