    USADA announced today that Jessica Penne, of Chula Vista, Calif., accepted a 20-month sanction for her second anti-doping policy violation.

    Penne, 36, tested positive at trace levels for two metabolites of stanozolol, 16β-hydroxystanozolol and 3′-hydroxystanozolol, as the result of an out-of-competition urine sample she provided on April 8, 2019. Stanozolol is a non-Specified Substance in the class of Anabolic Agents and prohibited at all times under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy and UFC Prohibited List.

    USADA determined that a reduction to the otherwise applicable period of ineligibility was appropriate in this case due to the totality of circumstances, including the complexity of issues, as well as Penne’s participation in discussions with USADA following her initial public comments in January. Furthermore, under the current UFC Anti-Doping Policy, USADA did not pursue an enhanced sanction for a second violation because USADA determined that Penne was not intending to cheat when she committed her first violation, as her use of the prohibited anabolic agent dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) in a dietary supplement was based upon the recommendation of her physician related to a medical issue.

    During its investigation – and in an effort to determine a relative time period of stanozolol ingestion that caused her positive test – USADA also requested that the laboratory re-analyze Penne’s out-of-competition sample previously reported negative from April 4, 2019. The laboratory was able to conduct targeted analysis on the April 4, 2019 sample and subsequently identified trace levels for one stanozolol metabolite also found in her April 8, 2019 sample. The supplements that Penne submitted for analysis did not test positive for stanozolol. Upon notification of her positive test, Penne obtained a third-party laboratory result showing that a medication was the source of the prohibited substance in her sample. However, through working with the third-party laboratory and the WADA-accredited Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory (SMRTL) in Salt Lake City, USADA determined that the initial results from the third-party lab did not adequately establish a source of the positive test due to the lab’s testing protocol.

    Penne’s 20-month period of ineligibility began on April 8, 2019, the date her positive sample was collected.

    TLDR: She will be able to fight again in December. Which being her second violation, should have been 4 years initially.
    A hefty discount if you ask me.

    They seemed pretty irreversible at first about this case. Interesting how they flipped. I wonder why.

    She'll be 37 when she's able to come back. What's the upside for the UFC? Why not release her and let her go to Bellator?

    She probably gave them memberships for her fans only to "find" this evidence

    Looking forward to seeing her go 0-2 and cut in 2021.

    Then why was the sentence reduced? Aren't the suspensions by increments of six months, unless there are mitigating circumstances?

    The base was 2 years.

    She could have got an extra 2 years as a second offence but USADA accepted her argument that she did not "intend to cheat" with her first offence.

    She got a 4 month reduction for having grown up conversations with them instead of spreading nonsense and half-truths on social media.

    She bashed the hell out of them in public. And they just backed down? What about the way the went public to refute her claims?

    USADA is a joke that just makes up everything on the fly. You can pulse if you can sell. Get reduced sentences if you are scheduled to fight. You can get a reduction if you rat out others. You can get rulings overturned if you throw shade at their obvious corruption.

    What a joke.

    She gave them a discount to her Onlyfans account.<45>


    Seriously though, I'm assuming public pressure might have got them to re-think her sentence. Imagine the spin on the headline.

    Female fighter forced to become "sex worker" after unfairly harsh sanction from her "employer".

    Keeping her away from bellator is the upside. I don’t really understand this sentiment. When athletes get busted people, not necessarily you I’m talking about, act as if the UFC should just release them so they can go fight somewhere else. If they did this, they would not only be helping the athlete but the competition as well. And disgruntled athletes would use it as a way to get out of their contracts. Sure Jessica is not a huge draw by any means but her services are still property of the UFC. She screwed up, why should the UFC “suffer?”

    Yeah but will she fight again though? I somehow doubt it. That onlyfans gig might swayed her from getting punched in the face.

    Yet more proof that PEDs do not make you a better fighter, just a better workout warrior.
