USADA informs Amanda Lemos of potential anti-doping violation

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) yesterday notified UFC bantamweight Amanda Lemos (6-1-1) of a potential violation after an issue with an out-of-competition sample collected on Nov. 8.

The UFC released the following statement on its website:

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Amanda Lemos of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on November 8, 2017.

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

Lemos, 30, made her debut at UFC Fight Night 113 in July, losing to Leslie Smith after reeling off six wins and a draw in her native Brazil.

The process continues.
