USADA notifies Justin Ledet of potential anti-doping infraction
The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced yesterday that 28-year-old Brazilian UFC middleweight Justin Ledet (8-0-0, 1NC) of a potential anti-doping infraction following an out-of-competition sample collected Jan.12.
Ledet was supposed to face prospect Dmitry Sosnovskiy at Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston, but he reportedly pulled out with an injury on Jan. 26, forcing the UFC to remove Sosnovskiy and reschedule him at a later date.
The UFC released the following statement on its website.
The UFC organization was formally notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Justin Ledet of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on January 12, 2017.
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 fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.
Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
Ledet’s last fight was a submission win over Mark Goodbeer at UFC Fight Night 99 in November 2016.
Yesterday, USADA also informed Ricardo Abreu of a potential violation.
The process continues.
