UFC featherweight Chad Mendes (17-4-0) was informed June 10th by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) of a potential out-of-competition anti-doping infraction.
Mendes last fought at TUF 22 Finale last December, losing by KO to Frankie Edgar.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
The UFC released the following statement:
“The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Chad Mendes of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair review 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.”
The process continues.
