Ännu ett dopingfall i UFC.
Adam Hunters (7-1) match mot Ryan Janes (8-1) har blivit struken från matchkortet på UFC on FOX 21 som går av stapeln i Vancouver inatt. Den trettiotvåårige Hunter har flaggats av USADA för ett potentiell dopingbrott.
Resultaten som kommit tillbaka från ett test, taget den 11:e augusti, har visat något som strider emot UFCs anti-doping policy. Det skrev UFC i följande officiella utlåtande:
”The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Adam Hunter of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collection on August 11, 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 fair legal review process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed.
However, because Hunter was scheduled to compete against Ryan Janes this coming Saturday, August 27 in Vancouver, British Columbia, there is insufficient time for a full review before the scheduled bout and therefore the fight has been removed from the fight card.
Consistent with all previous potential anti-doping violations, additional information or UFC statements will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.”
