UFC welterweight Augusto Montano will not receive any sanctions for testing positive for clenbuterol, the USADA announced.
Montano (15-2), who has split his two UFC appearances, has been exposed to the banned substance through contamination.
Below is the complete press release from the USADA:
“While the risk of consuming clenbuterol-tainted meat and testing positive for an athlete is extremely small, consistent with past athlete advisories, USADA reminds athletes to use the utmost care if eating meat in known high-risk countries, including Mexico and China. In line with WADA recommendations, USADA will continue to assess the presence of clenbuterol in an athlete’s sample on a case by case basis, taking into account all the evidence supporting the likelihood of such contamination.”
Montano remains set to face Belal Muhammad later this month at UFC Fight Night 94.
