Former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir has been notified of a possible Anti-Doping violation. The potential violation appeared in a post fight sample provided after his UFC Fight Night 85 knockout loss to Mark Hunt last month.
The UFC released the following statement:
The UFC organization was notified today that the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has informed Frank Mir of a potential Anti-Doping Policy violation stemming from an in-competition sample collected the day of his fight on March 20, 2016 in Brisbane, Australia.
USADA, the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, will handle the results management and appropriate adjudication of this case involving Mir. It is important to note that, 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.
