And Another One… USADA Pops Another UFC Vet

It would appear that another competitor in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has now been flagged by USADA, the mixed martial arts promotion’s anti-doping watchdogs.

Grant Dawson most recently earned a victory over Adrian Diaz at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series 6 with a second round submission win.

Here is the UFC’s official statement concerning the fighter’s recent flag by USADA:

“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Grant Dawson of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on October 18, 2017.

“USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Dawson. 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.”
