USADA informs Fabricio Werdum of potential anti-doping violation

The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced yesterday that Fabricio Werdum was notified of a potential anti-doping infraction with respect to an out-of-competition sample collected on April 25, 2018.

Werdum responded on his Instagram account, calling the situation a “misunderstanding.”

Meanwhile, the UFC posted a response on its website:

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Fabricio Werdum of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on April 25, 2018.

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

The process continues.
