Azamat Murzakanov informed of potential anti-doping policy violation

UFC newcomer Azamat Murzakanov’s debut with the organization will be put on hold temporarily as news developed earlier today that the undefeated Russian fighter was hit with a potential anti-doping policy violation.

Murzakanov (7-0), known as “The Professional” was supposed to debut in June at UFC Fight Night 112 but was pulled from the card and replaced by Dominick Reyes.

UFC statement below:

The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Azamat Murzakanov of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an out-of-competition sample collected on September 2, 2017.

USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Murzakanov. Under the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, there is a full and fair legal process that is afforded to all athletes before any sanctions are imposed. Additional information will be provided at the appropriate time as the process moves forward.
