    Diego Sanchez is the latest victim of a tainted supplement.


    The UFC veteran has accepted a three-month suspension after failing an out-of-competition drug test collected on Dec. 12. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), the UFC’s anti-doping partner, announced the news Friday.

    Sanchez (31-12 MMA, 18-12 UFC) tested positive for ostarine and S-23, two non-specified substances in the class of anabolic agents that are prohibited at all times under the UFC anti-doping policy and prohibited list, according to a release from USADA.

    USADA was able to test and confirm the substances came from a contaminated supplement, which had no prohibited substances listed on the label.


    USADA determined Sanchez’s exposure to the substances began Oct. 26, 2019, making his suspension retroactive to that date. Sanchez received a reduced suspension after proving his positive test was caused by contaminated products. Additionally, the low levels detected in the products would not have enhanced his performance, according to USADA.

    The suspension ended Jan. 26, so it will not affect Sanchez’s scheduled fight against Michel Pereira at UFC on ESPN+ 25, which takes place Feb. 15 in Rio Rancho, N.M.

    this, plus it's 3 month since the "exposure" not even the test, so it's a 6 weeks suspension from the day of the test

    I agree.

    It's turned into an unprincipled joke, where some fighters get off so easy, and other fighters get hit with the hammer. The UFC is definitely using this as a negotiation tool.

    “Additionally the low levels detected would not have enhanced his performance”

    do they base this on an actual excretory study, theoretical model, or do they just pull this out of their asses?

    Jones single handily took down USADA

    They now too shook to give anyone anything more than a slap on the wrist unless it's some TJ Dillashaw EPO level shit.

    if you say we've proven you accidentally took tainted supplements and admit it was too low to enhance performance anyway ...why any suspension at all.

    defeats some of the point of investigating at all.

    Pull it out their asses.

    The clear caveat is that they took a theraputic dose, and then by the time you detected it, only trace amounts remain. You cannot conclude that no theraputic benefit was derived, because of this caveat. The only way to disprove this caveat would be to test them every day. In that case, trace amounts appearing out nowhere would be more likely to be contamination.
