Lyman Good off UFC 205 fight card, UFC issues statement

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Lyman Good of a potential Anti-Doping violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on October 14, 2016.  USADA has provisionally suspended Good based on the potential anti-doping violation.

Good was scheduled to fight Belal Muhammad in New York at UFC 205.  The UFC is currently seeking a replacement to fight Muhammad.

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.  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.
