It would appear that UFC welterweight Tim Means has elected to file a lawsuit against the supplement company allegedly responsible for selling the fighter tainted supplements.
Tim Means failed a drug test just last year. Means was pulled from his expected match up against Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 83 and was nearly dealt a lengthy 2 year suspension. However, it was determined by USADA that the banned substance entered the fighter’s system due to a tainted supplement. As a result, the suspension time was greatly reduced.
Taking to Twitter, Means recently revealed that he is in a lawsuit with the supplement company allegedly responsible for the incident.
I am currently in the middle of lawsuit.

Of Course, Tim Means is not the only fighter to do so. UFC’s Lyman Good also failed a drug test last year, with the source of the banned substance having been traced to a tainted supplement. For the USADA failed drug screening, Good suffered a six month suspension from the octagon.
As reported by Combat Sports Law, Good went on to file a lawsuit against the supplement company allegedly at fault. Good said they “are conducting an on-going, fraudulent scheme to adulterate certain products with anabolic steroids and misbrand those products as ‘dietary supplements’ to defraud customers.”
Tim Means is now set to take on Belal Muhammad at UFC Fight Night 121 on Nov. 18 in Sydney, Australia.
