The United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced the two-year suspension of former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum (23-8-1) for a failed April 2018 drug test.

According to a USADA press release, Werdum “tested positive for trenbolone and its metabolite epitrenbolone following an out-of-competition urine test conducted on April 25, 2018. Trenbolone is a non-Specified Substance in the class of Anabolic Agents and prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, which has adopted the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List.”

The suspension began on May 22.

Werdum’s last bout was a knockout loss to Alexander Volkov at UFC Fight Night 127 in March.
