Jesse Taylor is the latest fighter to test positive for a banned substance, as the recent Ultimate Fighter winner failed an out-of-competition test conducted by USADA.

Taylor was scheduled to meet Belal Muhammad in November at UFC Fight Night 121 from Australia. Officials are seeking a replacement for Taylor to keep Muhammad on the card.

USADA released a statement concerning Taylor:

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