Ion Cutelaba understands that he’ll have to win back the trust of the MMA public after failing a drug test.

The UFC fighter took the first step in that direction by expressing his feelings via social media. Cutelaba was given a six-month suspension by USADA after working to show he didn’t intentionally take anything illegal.

“I accepted the suspension from USADA for 6 months, and after 3 May I can participate. I did not show anything positive.

I’m an honest athlete!

Now we’re looking for a fight! The Hulk is ready to fight again!

I’m a true sportsman and have never cheated the rules, it’s been a long way to justice but now we’re here! I want to thank The Fuel Clinic, Saam Falahati, Iulia Barau and Paul Greene as without their support this would not be possible.

I will be doing a public statement soon explaining everything, but thank you all for your trust and support! THE HULK IS BACK!”
