    It was confirmed yesterday that the UFC had cancelled the contract of Amir Aliakbari as his lifetime ban for two doping violations in wrestling was recognised by the UFC's anti-doping program Administrator USADA.



    Iranian news however decided to run that tweet through google translate and are blaming US economic sanctions against Iran as the reason :D

    Iranian mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Amir Aliakbari has had to bow out of the UFC –an American MMA promotion company- after the US sanctions against Iran prevented him from transferring his earnings.

    The professional Iranian wrestler and MMA fighter Aliakbari says he was left with no choice but to terminate his contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) when the US’ economic sanctions against Iran barred him from transferring millions of dollars of his income.

    One of Iran's sporting heros.

    World champion wrestler in Moscow (2010), misse the 2012 Olympics because of a doping ban. Came back in 2013, won the World Championship again but stripped and banned for life for second doping offence.

    10-1 in MMA and on a 5 fight streak beating up cans in ACB and RIzin

    It's too bad two doping violations in the UFC doesn't result in a mandatory lifetime ban.

    Man, that's too bad. He could have made some serious, serious waves. I have said multiple times that he could possibly be champion.

    Why is a ban in another sport applied to the UFC and MMA? Does that mean if Lance Armstrong was a good fighter he couldn't fight?

    It was for doping. USADA has an ethical obligation to honor doping-based bans.
