UFC heavyweight Ruslan Magomedov has been notified of a potential violation of the anti-doping policy by the USADA.
Magomedov was scheduled to meet Stefan Struve next month at UFC 204, but the 29-year-old pulled out of the fight earlier with an injury.
Below is the official statement from the UFC:
“The UFC organization was notified that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Ruslan Magomedov of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection made on September 7, 2016.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case. It is important to note that, under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair review 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.”
