USADA hands Frank Mir two-year sanction

The United States Anti-Drug Agency (USADA) announced today that UFC heavyweight Frank Mir has received a two-year suspension for multiple positive tests for prohibited substance.

An in-competition test on March 20, 2016 revealed positive for dehydrochloromethyltestosterone (DHCMT), a class of Anabolic Agents which is banned on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) list.

USADA reanalyzed Mir’s previous samples using a new detection method and found a DHCMT metabolite in a previously negative out-of-competition February 5, 2016 test.

Mir’s ineligibility started on April 8, 2016. His last fight was a loss to Mark Hunt at UFC Fight Night 85.
